On March 30, 2015 John Hilton wrote an article that the editors titled ‘Owners: Bender’s Potato and Produce  Barn will not open this year’.  It can be read here:


He did a nice job, but here are some corrections:

  • John wrote, ‘Benders began growing potatoes more than two decades ago’.  But really, Benders have been growing potatoes in Chambersburg for more than a century, but Bender’s Potato and Produce Barn was opened more than two decades ago.
  • He also wrote, ‘Bender Potatoes includes about 100 acres of crop annually’.  We really grow around 300 acres of crops annually.

Thanks for the post.
