A multi-generation, family owned organization firmly planted in North Dakota’s Red River Valley more than 80 years ago, Black Gold has evolved into a global potato production, sales and service company and industry leader. We are the nation’s largest supplier of chip potatoes.
What's in a name?
The name "Black Gold" was adopted in 1965 when the family entered the registered Angus cattle business. "Black" symbolized the fertile, truly deep ebony black soil deposited by Ice Age glaciers and the Black Angus hide. The "Gold" represented the golden chip potato skin and potential value of the newly named company.
Today, our extensive network of operations is made up of some of the best in the business—highly skilled individuals who put their minds to work each and every day to find new and better ways to serve Black Gold customers, vendors and land partners. And with 17,000 acres in production in 11 states around the country, we put down roots in each of our farm communities and cultivate relationships built on honesty, reliability and value.
