More than 80 years ago, we began planting potatoes on ten acres in the Red River Valley. Since then, Black Gold Farms has evolved into a global operation with more than 20,000 acres in production around the country. But some things have remained the same. We are deeply rooted in the land and each of the communities where we live and work, and we continue to measure success by our ability to sustain the soil and the business for generations to come.
Our land partners are valued members of our Black Gold family. We appreciate the use of their land and every day our goal is to leave it better than we found it. We pay a fair price to rent it. And we believe that long-term relationships founded on trust and reliability will result in ongoing success and profitability for Black Gold Farms and all of our business partners.
