Sloping east from the Rocky Mountains, the Canadian Prairie sweeps across Southern Alberta – a vast swath of gently rolling grassland that millions of potatoes call home. The warm summer sun shines almost constantly during the growing season, and the high elevation keeps the nights cool and clear. In addition to sandy, well-drained soil and low humidity, Southern Alberta has all the ingredients for potato perfection.
