I remember visiting a potato farm about 30 years ago. The farmer was growing them in rich, black soil. After harvest, the potatoes were run  through a machine that was filled with red volcanic soil. The potatoes were lightly coated in this soil which apparently increased their value at market as potatoes grown in red soil were desirable. I also heard a comment that the potatoes kept better when coated in red soil. Not sure that I would buy those potatoes in the video purely based on principle.

Lol.  They might be worth even more if you leave the dirt on.  I used to buy dirty potatoes all the time. 
Someone really ought to tell them that the world of Ayn Rand?s novel was not meant to be aspirational.
