The employees at Sackett Potatoes are a valuable asset. Without their dedication and hard work, it would be impossible to harvest a quality crop.
Accepting applications year round, we offer both full time and seasonal employment. We are always looking to hire employees with a great work ethic, who are willing to work hard and grow within our business.
In 1904 Edward Sackett left his Nebraska farm to purchase a 160 acre farm in Michigan. In 1905 he planted his first crop which consisted of 20 acres of potatoes and the Sackett family has grown potatoes every year since.
Edward farmed with his sons until his death in 1917. Edward's middle son Hiram, continued farming along with his 3 sons, Keith, Nathan and Derwin.
