8 Food Miles

006Local organic fingerling potatoes are readied for delivery to Costa’s Food Store in Coudersport, Pennsylvania. Food miles refer to the distance food travels from farm to consumer. For this food delivery, we have 8 Food Miles to travel.

Varieties of potatoes grown in Potter County, Pennsylvania are different from those you mostly find in the grocery stores. The flavor of our fingerling potatoes is nutty with earthy undertones that develop when cooked with a unique flavor better than the varieties that are normally found in the grocery store. Most of the commercially produced potatoes are grown on large farms in the mid-west and in Idaho. For those Idaho potatoes, the food miles are 2200 or more. Compared to that distance, our potatoes are grown a stone’s throw away from your table.
