Jones Farms Organics Potatoes!
Jim Jones purchased the Jones family farm in 1955 from his father who had originally purchased the farm from a local farmer who could no longer afford the taxes on the land. Jim, after returning home from the Army, purchased the farm with a Farmer's Home Administration loan. He focused on growing potatoes and wheat. As farming began to gain interest in the San Luis Valley, it would soon become one of the largest potato producing regions in the nation. Today, the San Luis Valley is the second leading producing region in the nation of fresh market potatoes.
Over 30 years later in 1978, Jim's son Rob (right) returned home after finishing college to take the helm of Jones Farms. After many successful years of farming utilizing conventional farming techniques, he began researching and experimenting with organic and natural methods. His degree in biology gave him the knowledge and drive to learn and implement these rarely utilized techniques.
Today, Jones Farms has converted to Jones Farms Organics. The reason for the switch is simple. Producing natural and organic products not only benefit the consumer health wise, but also have a positive effect on our soil conditions, environment and well-being. Today's farmer struggles to combat the ever-adapting diseases and microbes that attack their crops. Farmers were forced to fight back with the use of chemicals, but in the long run began to deteriorate their soil.
Jones Farms Organics believes that farmers can effectively fend off disease by correctly managing the biology of the soil. Although converting from conventional to organic soil is often timely, we have found it to be effective in combating the diseases once controlled by harmful chemicals.
