On Wednesday, we hosted our Fruit Valley potato planters (aka newly appointed 4th graders) back to the farm to dig their spuds. Mother Nature was smiling on us with beautiful weather. The kids harvested over 330 lbs of beautiful and HUGE potatoes! Every potato farmer took home potatoes along with a cooking kit donated by Lapellah Restaurant and April Joy Farm. The kits included parsley, garlic and potatoes from April Joy Farm, along with oil, salt, pepper and a recipe from Lapellah. A crew from Lapellah even came out to help with the harvest and meet the kids.
These farmers are now prepared to be chefs for their families. They are all set up to make delicious roasted potatoes!
Another 10 potato cooking kits will be distributed through the Fruit Valley Resource Center to other families in the community. What did we do with the remaining potatoes? Find out here.
Hooray for the Fruit Valley kids who are feeding their community!
