Tracking a Tater

Lake Effect’s Stephanie Lecci produced our feature for Project Milwaukee: What's on Our Plate? on following the economic impact of a Wisconsin potato. She visited locations including Heartland Farms, the University of Wisconsin’s Hancock Agricultural Research Station, and Frito-Lay. She also spoke with Joe McCarthy of Diamond Foods, which owns the Kettle brand potato chips, and Duane Maatz of the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association.
