The Bodega red potato was once a mainstay of life in the North Bay. But, after years of neglect, the heirloom spud nearly died out before being rescued by food historians. Today, the Bodega red is once again a thriving commercial success. A survey of farmers suggested that around 30,000 pounds of Bodega reds were grown for consumption this year.
