Raising Potatoes

Potaoes were a very important crop for our early settler ancestors in Idaho


The first potato crops were planted and harvested by hand. Before the advent of mechanized diggers it was not uncommon for father and son, or even the womenfolk, to go into the fields with forks and shovels to dig the potato crop.


Horse drawn potato equipment became available about the turn of the century. This potoato planter was drawn by two horses and required two operators, one to drive the horses, and a second to sort the potatoes and make sure a potato seed got dropped into the furrow every few inches.
