"I was at Utah State University when my dad and I talked about heading to Alberta," says Nick Cummins of his farming origins. "I grew up helping him on the farm here in Idaho so I felt I knew a lot – but once I got up there I realized I had a lot to learn. I guess I was baptized into the potato industry right then and there." A third-generation farmer – his grandfather began farming the Snake River Valley in 1954 – Nick got his start in 2001 with his brother Nate, and eventually moved back to Idaho to continue farming there. "Nate and I each run our side of the farm – we bring different things to the operation and it works really well."
