“You’ve got to start with a great potato in order to end with a great potato chip”  Potato farming is in Steve’s blood. His dad first started growing potatoes for Frito-Lay chips 27 years ago. It’s Steve’s love of the land and what he does that makes his potatoes the pride of Florida.

These brothers and 3rd generation potato farmers have been growing potatoes since they were old enough to walk. Their pride for their potatoes and their family makes us proud that Walther potatoes have gone into Frito-Lay chips since 1975.
