What are seed potatoes?
Seed potatoes are just potatoes that are grown for other farmers to plant. The seed program was established in order to control diseases and keep a clean stable potato pipeline. Our potatoes are grown, sold to a commercial farmer who in turn grows the potatoes, and they sell them to you in all in the different forms of potatoes.
We grow several varieties. Here are some types and their uses:
Russet Varieties - Used for fresh, French fries, dehydrated
Chip Varieties - Used for potato chips
Yellow Varieties - Used for restaurant style fresh French fries
Fingerlings - Used for fresh preparation
