F2F Meet the Grower: Eric Halverson

Eric Halverson is a fourth-generation potato farmer based in Grand Forks, North Dakota.  Eric’s family operation grows red potatoes in 5 states, including 500 to 1,000 acres of red potatoes in North Dakota’s Red River Valley.

To preserve their appealing yet delicate skins, red potatoes need to be handled with care, nurtured with quality soil and harvested at peak freshness.  Demand for red and other specialty potatoes has been on the rise.  Eric and his team ensure their red potatoes showcase premium skins and freshness.

Eric recommends red potatoes as a delicious, unconventional choice for a perfect baked potato with a crisp skin and steamy, fluffy inside.  He also loves reds for their presentation in skin-on mashed potatoes and potato salads.
