Colorado Exhibit

The Colorado exhibit featured the Greeley Irish potato. It is an unusually large and fine variety, with a yield of six hundred bushels an acre. Colorado’s atmosphere and soil is the key to the potato’s size and flavor. If planted anywhere else, these qualities are lost. The Greeley product was a very profitable crop, for example, J. A. Haythorne of Eaton made $9,967 from seventy acres.
