Tschirky Farms

Ted Tschirky lives for summer Saturdays. The phone isn't ringing, work slows down a bit, and he can spend a few hours just watching his potato fields grow. Ted started farming at 16 – his first project was growing potatoes for Lamb Weston with the Future Farmers of America. He kept at it, and now he's been growing potatoes in the Columbia River Basin for 35 years.
