Interview with Jerry Bushman
It was 50 years ago in September of 1961 that Jerome “Jerry” Bushman began a career in the potato marketing business, starting work for his father, John and uncle, Harry, at Bushman Brothers in Rosholt.
As the potato industry expanded over the years and the need for suppliers to provide potatoes year-round became more important, Jerry branched off on his own, and established Bushmans’, Inc. in 1974.
