Barrett Produce is Muleshoe mainstay

By Alice Liles

Alice’s note: This story first appeared in my blog The Bright Lights of Muleshoe on July 11, 2016. Barrett Produce has been a successful agricultural business in Muleshoe for many years, thanks to more than one generation of the Barrett family and continues to contribute to the economy of Muleshoe. This is their story.

Barrett Produce has been packing potatoes in Muleshoe since 1952, but the family business has been around much longer than that. The potato shed was thriving when we moved here in 1980, both of my kids worked there a couple of summers, and the business has become a Muleshoe institution, so I felt like it was about time I shared its history with you.
Current owner/president Richard Barrett graciously allowed me to interrupt his day for a history lesson and a tour through the facility.
