“In challenging times, it’s the things we take for granted that matter the most.” This commercial poignantly defines what is needed to keep the food supply chain running from the farmers to your kitchen table. And why am I putting an ad for a trucking company on our social media? Wait for it. If you would like to learn more about our farm you can visit “BJ’s Radio Interview” to hear her speak on 105.9 The Region.
At the end of another long and exhausting week harvesting the potato crop we received an inspiring boost to our spirits. As I was sorting out the mail, I found a small envelope from Montana that contained a wonderful thank you letter. We have never met young Kaleb who wrote us the letter, but we certainly appreciate his kind words thanking us for helping to feed the world.
I have transcribed his words below in case the thank you card is a bit hard to read from the photo:
“Dear Thompson Potato Farm,
My name is Kaleb. I’m 13 years old and live in Red lodge Montana. Currently I am in a Ag Class and I would like to thank you for everything you do. It means a lot to me that you are helping to feed the world. I really like mash potatoes and I can’t live in a world without potatoes, so thank you.
Our pleasure Kaleb! We also cannot imagine a world without potatoes. We hope you enjoy your agriculture education at Red Lodge. My recipe for perfect mashed potatoes can be found at “Cooking Potatoes 101.”
Thompson Potato Farm
Farming is fascinating!
