Food is the essence of our existence and our conversations! As we prepare for the anticipated holiday meals, our focus turns to favorite family recipes, gatherings of friends, or perhaps, the best restaurant options. Regardless of where we gather around the table, there will be food thanks to the commitment of farmers like the Halverson Family.
In this issue, read how this fourth generation North Dakota family has grown over the past (almost) 100 years from a 10-acre potato “patch” to supplying potatoes in all shape and sizes for most of our plates.
And talking about potatoes, read the highlights of colleague Keith Ayrob’s, RDN, PhD, article about the nutritional benefits of potatoes. Finally, read my annual reminder about keeping food safety front and center during this holiday season — a reminder that family and friends will appreciate!
