How long has The Little Potato Company been in business?

The Little Potato Company has been in operation since 1996. The company started when Jacob and his daughter Angela set out to see if the potatoes Jacob loved as a boy in Holland could be grown here in North America. They sold their first crop at a farmers market, but today you can find The Little Potato Company potatoes in supermarkets and restaurants across Canada and the United States.

What makes The Little Potato Company special?

Aw, shucks. That kind of question makes us blush. But since you asked, here’s a top three:

We’re committed to the quality of our potatoes. Check out how we grow them.

We’re the only company in North America to specialize in growing only little potatoes. (Some others sell so-called “little” potatoes, but they’re actually early culls or off-grades from their regular sized potato plants. Our varieties stay perfectly small at full maturity.)

We have six potato varieties that we own the proprietary rights to. We’re the only company that can grow these specific beauties.

Ok, that’s enough. Now we’re really blushing. If you’d like to hear more, you can always check out what makes us different.

Can I plant these potatoes?

You could, but they won’t result in any potato plants. That’s because the potatoes we sell are table potatoes, not seed potatoes. Seed potatoes sprout quickly and are used for growing potato plants.
