Being named “Large Business of the Year” by the Little Falls Chamber of Commerce is a great accolade for Sea View Farm, said Farm Manager Jim Bridges.
“We’re very proud of it,” he said.
The recognition also lets them know that they must be doing something right in the community, Bridges said.
In addition, he said, being named Large Business of the Year gives Sea View Farm more exposure in the community. Not only to more employees, as they are currently hiring, but also to businesses and partnerships with other farmers.
“We rent a lot of land,” he said.
Bridges said the Little Falls branch of Sea View Farm was established in 2011, and employs up to 28 people. Each year, the business grows more than 2,000 acres of potatoes for the frozen processing market. The potatoes are then sold to an exclusive french fry producer that has several locations in North America, Bridges said.
Wanting to give back to the community, Bridges said he personally is a member in good standings with the Little Falls Lions Club. Sea View Farm is also a proud supporter of the local FFA organizations, the Flyer Athletic Boosters, the Little Falls Dam Festival, attends the winter and summer parade and is involved in several agricultural advocate groups in the local area, Bridges said.
