We love growing sweet potatoes
and we want you to love it too.
Actually, it's more than a love affair, it's an obsession. We grow local northern sweet potatoes that flourish in our short season. But we also sell slips for the home grower who can't slip their own and sweet potatoes you can take home in late winter to slip yourself. It's a lot of fun!
Our obsession is made apparent as you read about our annual variety trials with other sweet farms and our ongoing efforts to develop new varieties bred for increased yields and shortened the days to maturity (DTM).
These sweet potato varieties are best suited for the climate in and around Ottawa, Ontario; a challenging climate with extreme highs and lows, humid and dry days, droughts and downpours.
Let's get slipping!
To help you on your journey, locally adapted, short-season sweet potatoes are available to you in two forms:
Sweet Potato Slips
These are ready to be planted straight into your garden. An info sheet outlining best practices for growing, harvesting, and curing sweet potatoes in our northern climate is included with every purchase.
Slipping Sweet Potatoes
These sweet potatoes are ready to explode with dozens of slips. We recommend you start slipping as early as February. An info sheet outlining best practices for growing, harvesting, and curing sweet potatoes in our northern climate is included with every purchase.
