About Maple Wood Farm
Generations of Growing

In 1886, Frank Jungquist came to the U.S. from Sweden at the age of nineteen. In 1889 he purchased land four miles southwest of Mount Vernon and began a dairy farm. His son, Elmer, learned the ins and outs of farming and continued the dairy farm business. In 1935 Elmer acquired the present farm on Beaver Marsh Road known today as Maple Wood Farm. Over time, Elmer and his son Kenneth slowly transitioned the dairy business to a crop farm and eventually began planting the colorful potatoes we proudly grow today. In the late 1970’s, Ken’s sons, Roger and Bob, expanded the farm and currently Roger and his son Riley carry on the Maple Wood Farm legacy.

Generations of dedication, care, and heart have gone into building the farm into what it is today.

Our Growing Process

During mid to late spring, seed potatoes are planted for the season. These seed potatoes are grown in isolated regions to prevent diseases and help build resiliency. Through the summer months, we work diligently to protect our potato crops from pests, weeds, and disease. In early August the fully matured potato plants have their vines mowed to terminate any further growth. The potatoes then begin their 30-day cure which toughens their skin and prevents future bruising and blemishes. Finally, by late summer, our vibrant and hearty potatoes are ready to be harvested, packaged and shipped across the U.S.
