One of the most common questions we are asked is “Why don’t you just plant your own potatoes?” There are several reasons actually. Growing seed potatoes is an entirely different industry than growing table stock potatoes. First of all, we don’t have room to store the seed potatoes over the winter that we would need to plant all our fields. Secondly, the seeds we buy come certified to be disease free. And lastly, there is very little chance of cross contamination of varieties when we purchase them from a certified grower. There would be nothing worse than planting a field only to realize that there were several different varieties of seeds mixed together.
