When you ask the native Idahoan how he ended up in Canada, Nate Cummins laughs. "My family has been growing potatoes in Alberta for 14 years. The growers here are a tight knit group, and I'm fortunate to be a part of that." Nate and brother Nick are third-generation farmers – their father and grandfather farmed in the Snake River Valley and expanded to Southern Alberta in 2001. Nick moved back to Idaho, but the brothers still collaborate. "We both really enjoy growing potatoes. We are constantly talking about how to do things differently and that's what fuels us."
