No single food has shaped the landscape and the economy of northern Maine as the McCain’s French Fry. The Russet Burbank is a legendary frying potato, and its production utilizes over 40,000 acres of Maine farmland. The ripple effect of producing fries is the sustenance of the agricultural support industry in Aroostook – tractor supplies, employment, crop storages, truck driving, and seed production.
The world of producing french fries for McDonalds also supports the world of producing organic potatoes for tablestock and recently, for fries. At Northern Girl, we hope to provide your kitchen with an organic french fry with incomparable flavor. If we want more acres in organic production, we need to find more ways to bring organic to more tables. The Northern Girl Organic French Fry is one such way.
