Planted firmly in North Dakota’s Red River Valley more than 80 years ago, Black Gold Farms has evolved into a global business with a world vision and an international reputation for advanced technology and sustainable agricultural practices. Yet we still find a way to keep what we do as local as possible.
Our employees put down roots in farm communities across the country where they live and work. They cultivate relationships built on honesty, reliability and value. And they make sure that what is put in the truck and on the table is exactly what we say it is, grown exactly how we said it was.
Quality potatoes. Quality people.
For us, it's more than the quality of every single potato, it's about always digging deeper with a team committed to producing good food, giving back to the community or protecting our good earth.
