PYO potatoes at Bragg Farms

Lincoln getting a lesson from Barry Bragg on how to harvest sweet potatoes. One weekend left to Pick Your Own Potatoes at Bragg Farms. Bragg Farms have been growing potatoes for five years. Last year they did a PYO pilot and people loved it. “Potatoes harvested now will last until spring,” says Brittany Bragg. “As long as potatoes are kept dirty and stored in a burlap bag, they will last the winter.” The reason why store bought potatoes rot and go bad fast is because they are scrubbed and often packaged in plastic. Bragg Farms has been in operation since 1843.
“As a full function farm, we provide an authentic farm experience,” says Brittany Bragg. “Educating visitors on food sustainability; how to grow and preserve food is part of that experience.” You can harvest white, yellow or sweet potatoes. The fields are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. – the last tractor leaves for the potato field at 4:00 p.m. For more information visit
