Seed potatoes are potatoes that are ready plant. This year, we are happy to offer certified organic potatoes from Fedco in Maine.
You can grow potatoes in many places! In buckets, grow bags, raised beds, in the ground, old baskets, etc. They even tolerate some shade. Have I mentioned we love growing potatoes?
Potatoes are one of the easiest things to grow- they send up stems and leaves, become established plants and then begin growing more potatoes underground. Once the leaves and stems die back, it is time to harvest those spuds! Digging potatoes out of soil has always been a favorite kid (and adult!) activity at the farm.

Magic Molly Purple Potato
Magic Molly potatoes have a deep purple skin and beautiful deep purple flesh. They are super fun (and easy!) to grow, are beautiful, taste delicious and are great keepers through much of the winter. We harvest ours beginning in late summer and eat them from storage well into the new year. From Fedco. Fedco Magic Molly Potato Description
