2019 MR Potato Day
September 28, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
All are invited to come and pick potatoes at the Miller Research Farm at 426 East 200 North in Rupert on Saturday, September 28 from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon. The field is on the north side of the road behind the Miller Research office. We only have Russet Burbank potatoes this year. The potatoes have been raised according to safe, conventional agricultural practices.
You will need to provide your own boxes or bags.
Please only pick in designated areas! Piles of potatoes outside of this area were used in field experiments and we are not giving these away. Many of those piles were harvested earlier. Those potatoes have sat in the sun, turned green, and are not fit to eat.
Parking will be available on the north and south side of the field. Watch for the signs and follow the directions of the Miller Research personnel wearing bright yellow shirts. You can also drive through the field in designated areas if your vehicle is capable.
Please watch for the irrigation risers on each end of the field. Buckets have been placed over the risers to help people avoid running into them.
Please feel free to share this invitation with anyone who would be interested. Contact Jeff Miller at (208) 531-5124 if you have any questions.
