For starters, who can resist this Wedgie?
We’re dedicated partners to our employees, land partners, operators, vendors and customers. We dig deeper to cultivate positive, mutually beneficial long-term relationships with a network of skilled individuals. These relationships are the backbone of our operation. It’s the only way we can deliver on our commitment to produce fresh, high-quality food, give back to the communities in which we live and work, while protecting our good earth.
Seeing an opportunity to more efficiently and reliably ship potatoes, we became a vertically integrated farm to forklift operation with the creation of Horizon Logistics in 2019. We are now able to more effectively move produce throughout the country. Horizon Logistics offers year-round line-haul options and weekly pay. To learn more, visit horizonlogistics.com.

Black Gold Farms owns and operates five packing facilities. Each facility is an integral part in our fresh potato business. There is a year-round facility in Arbyrd, Mo. and seasonal facilities in Pearsall, Texas, East Grand Forks, Minn. and Camden, N.C., as well as a year-round sweet potato packing facility in Delhi, La.
These facilities are located on, or near the farm property, and work parallel with the farm team. The product they take in from the field is washed, graded, packed, stacked and stored before shipping. Each facility has poly and paper bag capabilities, as well as totes, bulk and other value-added packaging as requested by customers.
Land partners are valued members of our Black Gold family. Implementing potatoes in rotation is a great way we have found for land partners to create value. We pay a fair price to rent the land and pay in a timely manner. We believe that long-term relationships founded on trust and reliability will result in ongoing success and profitability for Black Gold Farms and all of our business partners. We take our responsibility to be good stewards of the land very seriously.
