At Pioneer Potatoes we take great pride in our high quality. We realize the key to growing and packing the best product is consistency. This is why ownership is involved in all parts of the process. John Thulen personally selects the seed, chooses optimal soil locations for planting, and oversees the entire growing process from seed to harvest. His son Wylie inspects fields daily during this process as well as he works alongside our trusted Pioneer Potatoes family of employees. We then package our product and ship them to markets, grocery chains, other consumers around the world. This high level of involvement allows us to recognize which varieties have the best size profiles, colors, other desired characteristics, and make changes from season to season as needed. Very few farms go from start to finish with a potato, and if you desire to work with a family that does that, then you want Pioneer Potatoes. Read the history of our family farm.
Our Brussels sprouts are known for their exceptional quality. Each stalk is hand cut, and then the sprouts are individually hand plucked from the stalk. Since we don't use any machines to cut and pluck, our sprouts have little to no bruising and cuts. This sets our sprouts apart in the industry and really allows us to offer a unique Brussels sprout. They are a smaller part of our family farm but one that we are equally proud of.
