Pemberton's Famous Potatoes

Pemberton Meadows is famous for producing seed potatoes used throughout the North America potato industry. "The soil in Pemberton is so rich and produces such beautifully flavoured potatoes" notes long-time Pemberton farmer Jeanette Helmer. Chefs from well known restaurants in Pemberton, Whistler and Vancouver rave about the flavour of Pemberton potatoes. Check out the Pemberton Farmers' Institute website.
