Monte Vista Potato Growers

Multiple potatoes harvested

Monte Vista Potato Growers (MVPG), in Monte Vista, CO, provides the majority of packing and distributing in the San Luis Valley, an area in Southwest Colorado known for its abundant crops. Being such a specialized industry, the MVPG had the demand, but lacked the capital, and the risky nature of a co-op run business made securing financing seem virtually impossible. Fortunately, the USDA B&I financing secured through First Southwest Bank allowed them to outfit a new facility with efficient production lines and quality storage capacity.
