Somerset Spud Potatoes

If you like potatoes, you’ll LOVE Somerset Spuds. Growing potatoes is our specialty, having perfected the technique over the years as a supplier to Snyder of Berlin potato chips. We grow white, red and Yukon gold varieties. Our mountain soil, pure rain and cool temperatures combine to create a distinctive full potato flavor (the climate in the Laurel Highlands is comparable to that of Maine and Idaho for growing potatoes). The spuds spend their summers growing underground in our rich mountain soil until they are delicately harvested and stored in an environment controlled for temperature, humidity and light. We use no chemicals to prevent sprouting and keep the potatoes happy in their field crates until they are sent to the stores. When they’re in season, we’ll put our fresh, local Somerset Spuds up against any old potatoes from Idaho anytime!

Each medium size Somerset Spud is free of fat and cholesterol, with just 100 calories and 23 net carbs. For more nutritional information visit www.healthypotato.com.
