Diverse Wisconsin Potato Varieties.
No other state offers the range and quality of potatoes that Wisconsin does — Russet, Round White, Round Red, Yellow Flesh, and Blue and Purple potato varieties. Our state-of-the-art potato seed farm in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, employs the potato industry’s top researchers who test and develop tomorrow’s potato varieties. And our continuing partnership with University of Wisconsin researchers contributes to our position as a global leader in the development and production of potato varieties, as well as an eco-friendly potato brand — Healthy Grown®.
Sustainable Brand Options.
We’ve partnered with some of the world’s leading researchers and conservation groups to establish a sustainable growing standard and brand — Healthy Grown®. As part of our Wisconsin Eco-Potato partnership, we work with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the International Crane Foundation, World Wildlife Fund and the Defenders of Wildlife to utilize and find better, less-invasive ways to manage pests and invasive plants, restore natural ecosystems, prevent erosion, support native plants and animals, conserve quality water and improve production.
Every one of our Healthy Grown farms is certified by Protected Harvest, an independent oversight organization, each year. They ensure our Healthy Grown growers pass annual whole-farm audits, and that all our packers and shippers maintain sustainability standards.
Centrally located, Wisconsin growers can provide you with a consistent supply of potatoes in all seasons. Our Wisconsin potato shippers have their own fleet of trucks or brokering firms to ensure customers are supplied with potatoes within 48 hours of placing an order.
Lower Food Miles.
Wisconsin is the number one producer of potatoes East of the Mississippi. That means for a good portion of the United States (especially East of the Mississippi), Wisconsin is the best lower-carbon-footprint choice — a state that can produce a wide variety of quality potatoes and deliver them in 24 to 48 hours.
Ideal climate and soils.
Our planet matters and so does our place on it. Our glacial soils, cool northern climate with a rapid warm up in spring, lack of organic residue and low density soils provide us with the ideal growing environment for potatoes. Because of this, our Wisconsin potatoes are subject to less plant disease and respond with vigorous, consistent growth.
Optimum Sizing, Storage and Packaging
You need quality consistently sized potatoes all year long. It’s our job to make sure that happens. Our state-of-the-art storage facilities are monitored for optimum conditions. Electronic sizing machines ensure product consistency; hollow heart detectors eliminate flawed potatoes; and our automated bagging machines and computerized inventory controls provide quality delivery of our diverse Wisconsin potato varieties.
