- A Northwoods potato seed farm recently shared a big announcement. Felix Zeloski Farms operates 1900 acres in Eagle River. Zeloski Farms in Eagle River will now run under new ownership. "It's been a real opportunity for all of us who are employed to do something that's important to the industry and we love it. We enjoy working every day here," said Ron Krueger.
The change took place July 17. Zeloski Farms was sold to Eagle River Seed Farm LLC. It's jointly owned and operated by RPE Inc. and CSS Farms. The new title doesn't mean too many changes. Krueger and his team of workers will continue to operate all of Zeloski Farms. "I guess this is the culmination of that, Wysocki Family Farms and CSS Farms decided to come together and purchase this operation and keep it running exactly the way it has been running and allow us to keep doing our jobs," said Krueger. Leaders at the farm say they won't have any cutbacks. "It's a win-win for everyone. Now we have a future that we can look at and say, we're going to be here for a long time," said Krueger. Zeloski Farms sells most of its potato seed to fresh potato growers, chip growers and processors.
