"We are on day 2 of planting here in the Osgood area. It's been a little cold but things are starting to get a bit better. It's been a rough start, it's taken until today to get all the planters going," said the farm manager.
Farm manager Andrew Mickelsen and, to get to the planting part of the operation, he started cutting seed, months ago. Seed prep on Mickelson farm is a huge operation. They grow russet norkotahs, russet burbank, and chieftan potatoes all sold through the family business, Rigby Produce. They also grow their own seed potatoes under the Yellowstone Seed brand.
