Heritage Potatoes Indicates Heritage Varieties (varieties that originate from before 1950)

Located in Central Alberta we have growing seed potatoes for the past 29 years. Growing potatoes in our cold climate results in vigorous seed potatoes which perform exceptionally well in all other regions in Canada. We pride our selves in offering Canada's largest selection of seed potatoes to home gardeners, market gardeners and nurseries across Canada.

Seed Potatoes

Unfortunately we will have a limited selection of varieties for the 2015 growing season. A sever hail storm drastically reduced our yields. As a result many varieties we will not be selling. Below we have updated our selection of availability, many of which we have sourced from other Alberta Seed Growers to compensate for our reduced yields this year.

 


Our Seed Potatoes
In 2014 we reduced the use of synthetic fertilizer by 80% by substituting with Organic sources of Nutrients. This year plan to use only organic fertilizer in our seed fields.
We will also be preparing future fields with a plow down cover crop to aid in weed control and soil fertility. We are currently in our 2nd year of our 5 year plan to eliminate the use for synthetic fertilizers and chemicals and obtain Organic Certification.
