A sixth-generation farmer from Malden, N.B. has found a market for potatoes too small to sell to grocery stores.
Blue Roof Distillers is the first Canadian farm-to-bottle distillery making vodka from potatoes.
The family used to donate the tiny taters from its 350-acre farm to local cattle farmers for feed or sell them to a dehydration plant that would turn them into potato flakes.
But an oversupply of small potatoes meant the dehydration plant's prices were low, so the family needed a new business venture, says Devon Strang. For the full story, click here.
