Senior College program on potato harvests

FORT KENT, Maine – St. John Valley Senior College is offering a session on “The Theriault Farm Experience” with Bob, Duane, and Cody. Attendees will view a year-long video production, filmed in 2021, that looks at potato farming in Northern Aroostook County.

You will watch and listen to Cody Theriault’s detailed commentary on planting right up-to marketing and, everything in between. Participants will then have the opportunity to question Bob, Duane, and Cody.
