Solar Gold Potatoes are similar to Yukon Golds, they are both sweet and a bit waxier than your standard Russet mashing potato. They hold up a bit better in a mash, leaving some chunks to enjoy. These dry-farmed potatoes irrigation-less growing technique gives them an amazingly concentrated flavor.
Little Organic Farms, owned and operated by David Little, is a third generation Marin resident originally from San Anselmo. He fell in love with farming and the countryside and started looking for ways to support his family on the ranch there and started farming potatoes in 1995. He chose potatoes because the land around Tomales was historically used to farm potatoes and was well suited to the crop. David has since has success growing onions, tomatoes, strawberries, and other crops on the farm.
