At Sunrise Potato we have been growing potatoes in Alliston, Ontario’s potato capital, since 1991. Our connection to this area extends back more than half a century, as Peter was born and raised on his father’s farm just down the road. We started Sunrise Potato so our children could also grow up on a farm, and to fulfill a life-long dream for Peter. Over the years, our six children have all been integral parts of the farm, and it has been a livelihood for the family. Today, the second generation is taking a leadership role.
Peter spends a lot of time researching and developing the best strains of potatoes. He then travels around the world working with others to share information and develop new strains.
