Our premium, quality potatoes are known around the world!

There are few veggies as versatile as the humble potato. Whether baked, fried, mashed, sautéed, or pureed, they taste delicious! They are easy to prepare and a great choice for your breakfast or dinner table.

Potatoes are fat free and they are a source of vitamin C, potassium and fiber. Because potatoes are rich in carbohydrates, they are also a source of energy.

The potato is the most universally grown crop in the world. They’re easy to grow and don’t require substantial amounts of water, fertilizer or chemicals to flourish. In fact, they produce more nutritious food, more rapidly and on less land than any other crop.

So what’s for dinner tonight? Simple and delicious recipe ideas are at your fingertips. After all, with the best potatoes in the world, courtesy of Cavendish Farms, dinner is sure to be terrific!
