SHIPPING OUT PALLETS OF WOOD PRAIRIE ORGANIC SEED POTATOES. One reason Caleb must keep the yard plowed out is that every week throughout the Winter we have trucks and tractor-trailers come in to either pickup Potatoes or to deliver supplies.
Here, on a recent cold morning, hooded Caleb has added a final layer of 50-pound cartons of Organic Seed Potatoes to finish up a full 2500# pallet. Surrounded by Canada on three sides, it’s a sure bet that when Potatoes leave Aroostook County, Maine, they are headed south to someplace warmer.
Caleb keeps his feet warm with thick insulated pull-on rubber boots. If you can keep your feet warm you are halfway towards being comfortable in extreme cold weather. Conversely, if your feet are cold you won’t ever get warm.
Caleb uses our reliable, always-starts ‘New Holland’ Skid Steer loader, outfitted with tire chains, to navigate the crusty yard and load those heavy pallets onto the awaiting truck. Caleb, Megan & Jim
