Making a Difference
Ranked third in the nation for potato production, and number one east of the Mississippi, our growers work together to provide the best Wisconsin potatoes and vegetables for consumers. To that end, we established the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association in 1948. Headquartered in Antigo, Wisconsin, we help our growers conduct and utilize the latest research and technologies, garner government support, produce environmentally-sound research and stay in touch with consumers.
We created the Wisconsin Healthy Grown™ initiative — sustainable farming that uses environmentally sound crop inputs, integrated pest management techniques and promotes the conservation of water, resources and Wisconsin’s native ecosystems.
We also promote Wisconsin potatoes by communicating the great things our farmers are doing, the health and nutrition potatoes naturally provide and the importance of buying local and supporting your local economy. Featuring unique ways to prepare potatoes is our specialty since we have a potato recipe that fits any occasion, even if you need a dessert!
So, whether you’re looking for unique, healthy and savory recipes, a chance to meet the growers who are feeding your family or information on their sustainable growing practices, you’ve come to the right place! We look forward to getting to know you.
Wisconsin farmers know that what they do today impacts tomorrow. That’s why sustainability and conserving Mother Nature’s resources for the next generation is at the core of every Wisconsin farm.
Wisconsin’s Healthy Grown program is proof and has helped the Badger State also become known as “the green state.” Through the Healthy Grown program’s high standards, Wisconsin farmers take a whole farm approach to environmental practices that include restoring natural ecosystems and supporting native plants and animals, among other benefits.
Wisconsin Potato & Vegetable
We are a non-profit organization that represents and promotes state potato and vegetable growers. Through the collected assessment dollars from Wisconsin’s potato crop, we work to ensure that what is happening legislatively in the state is benefitting Wisconsin growers as a whole.

We love talking about taters! And while some may consider them to be the perfect side dish (which they are), we like to keep them at the center of the plate!
That’s why they take center stage in our series of video productions that showcase all things potato!
Whether it’s talking about potatoes, cooking with potatoes, introducing our growers or watching our mascot, Spudly, get into some crazy situations of his own, we’ve got it all right here for your viewing pleasure!
