Our Seed Potatoes are not only Certified Seed Potatoes, but they are also Certified Organic. We have been growing our potatoes using organic methods since 2014 with the 2018 crop being the first with Organic Certification.
What is a Seed Potato?
A Seed Potato is a potato which has been grown & inspected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Although it is possible for gardeners to save seed for planting the following year, only farms certified and inspected can sell potatoes for seed. Unlike many vegetables, potatoes are not grown from seed, but instead from a tuber (the potato). This is done because a potato grown from the seed produced on a potato plant do not necessarily produce tubers identical to the mother plant. Only by planting a potato can we ensure that the potatoes harvested are the same as the potato planted.
