We grow certified seed potatoes that are held to low tolerances of virus and disease resistance. Our seed production is run as a separate division from our table and chipping potatoes, and is therefore a separate farm within Southern Potato. The seed farm has separate employees, equipment, storage and management. This ensures prevention of any contamination and disease spread, resulting in our ability to grow high quality seed varieties that create value for all of our seed customers. Being producers, we understand that the foundation of a profitable potato producer is the seed itself. Every good crop starts with good seed.
All of our seed potatoes are grown under the rules and regulations of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Maintaining good management practices ensures seed that will produce vigorous plants capable of generating high yields and high quality potato crops.

We work closely with our customers to decide which variety is best for their farms, based on their individual goals. We help producers select from the following varieties:
- Wisconsin Norland
- Fenway Red
- Russian Banana
- Chip Varieties
- Ivory Crisp
- Dakota Pearl
- Lady Claire
Once a seed variety has been selected, the seed then needs to travel from our farm to yours. We are able to offer packaging and delivery services custom tailored to each customer’s needs. We offer seed cutting and treatment services as well, so our seed customers can take advantage off all aspects of seed preparation right from the source. When you receive our seed, all you need to do is plant it.
