Construction Nearly Complete

Idaho Fingerling Potato RecipeFood safety and quality is our number one goal at Southwind Farms, and over the past several months we have invested in a serious facelift.

You can still smell the fresh paint!

In 2013 we underwent some major facility changes at Southwind Farms. Now nearing completion, we have effectively doubled the size of our building, from 12,000 SF to 23,000 SF. Some of the new features of the roughly $2 million renovation include:

Southwind is Growing

Recent growth here at Southwind Farms, should make us the nation’s second largest supplier of fingerling potatoes this season. Nonetheless, while Idaho fingerling potatoes have grown in popularity they still are a niche specialty potato and would be impractical to ship through traditional means.

Our approach at Southwind is a unique sales strategy. We very rarely can fill an entire load with just fingerling potatoes. What we have done to resolve shipping issues is partner directly with Wada Farms Marketing Group, Potandon Produce, Wilcox Fresh and Sun-Glo of Idaho, who stick a few pallets of the specialty potatoes in with customers’ Russet shipments.
