Gogle Farms Grown Potatoes
Growing up the Gogle Children were regaled with stories from their Great Grandpop about taking potatoes to the train in Rockdale by horse drawn wagon. Potatoes were a staple at not only Gogle Farms, but many family run farms in the area at the time Great Grandpop Gogle was growing up. So when it came time for the now grown up Gogle children to decide what to plant on their farm, they chose to honor their Great Grandpop by planting potatoes.
What potatoes we grow:
- Red Potatoes (red skin, white flesh)
- Purple Potatoes (purple skin, yellow flesh)
- Peter Wilcox variety also called Purple Gold
- Lehigh Potatoes (buff skin, yellow flesh)
- Developed at Cornell University to be more productive in the North East. Named Lehigh after the rich potato growing heritage of the Lehigh Valley.
