Information about the Group Buy
(click on the topic to read)
The price for seed potatoes includes shipping to our farm. Shipping is $11.00 for each 50 lb bag.
Several years ago, Marilyn of Abundantly Green organized a group buy of seed potatoes from a grower in Colorado. Kitsap County does not have a farmers’ co-op for buying large amounts of seed at a grower price. However, if we can put in one order of over 1000 lbs of seed, we can get really good prices for good seed. There are Certified Organic potatoes and Conventional potatoes. Not all varieties are available in both types.
Certified Potato Seed
This seed is certified by the Colorado Potato Certification Service to be free of disease. “Colorado Potato Certification Service maintains an extensive potato tissue culture laboratory, providing disease free plantlets to Colorado grower owned and operated tissue culture increase and greenhouse production facilities. This generates large quantities of nuclear disease free greenhouse grown minitubers for field planting. This is the basis of the limited generation system for year by year increase of seed potatoes in Colorado.” To learn more go to their website. http://potatoes.colostate.edu/potato-certification-service/.
The minimum amount that you can order is a 50 pound bag of one variety. If you want smaller amounts we cannot help you. Many people arrange to share the order with others. The potatoes can also be resold.
Please pay through our website. However, you can mail a check for the full amount to us. I will email you a confirmation no matter how you pay. If you do not receive it, please email or call Abundantly Green.
Royalty Varieties are protected. These are owned by Colorado State University. There is a $1.00/50lb wt. royalty. These varieties should not be grown for seed.
