Volunteers Sought For Campville Potato Harvest

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A project to aid Southern Tier food pantries will continue this weekend as volunteers help to gather more potatoes from a Tioga County field.

The Southern Tier Antique Tractor Club already has donated several tons of fresh potatoes to area agencies thanks to the efforts of adults and young people over the past two weekends.

The club’s Jim Baker says he hopes the remaining potatoes can be trucked away this Saturday.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program Thursday, Baker said there are “34 rows left to dig.”

Use of the field for the potato project was donated by Jackson Farms. It’s located off Route 17C in Campville, just west of Hanifin Marine.

Baker is encouraging volunteers to show up around eight o’clock Saturday morning to help gather potatoes in buckets and boxes so they can be delivered to agencies which provide food to those in need.

Baker said the potatoes harvested earlier this month were promptly distributed to pantries around the region.
