Meet Our Growers

We are #EssentialAg

March 24, 2020 was recognized by President Trump as National Agriculture Day. In recognition of the day, the National Potato Council launched a social media campaign to thank all of those working to keep America’s food supply safe, secure, and abundant.

The campaign was called #EssentialAg, and it aimed to thank the men and women of the U.S. food supply chain who are rightfully considered “essential workers” every day, but particularly so during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It's #NationalAgDay and we want to thank all the U.S. #potato growers and industry employees working to put food on dinner tables across the world! 
During this pandemic, it's become even more apparent that you are #EssentialAg!

A message from Tyler Thompson from Thompson Family Farm in Central Illinois: "My family and our 4th generation farm are thankful to be considered #essential to Americans during this crisis. No individual would have the strength or energy to fight COVID-19 if it weren't for the healthy, consistent, and secure supply of food and energy that U.S. farmers, support services, processors, packers, shippers, and outlets deliver to our neighbors. We are #EssentialAg."
