Located just northeast of Charlottetown in the community of Winsloe, the Dollar family operation has gone through many changes since it started in 1915. A friend had some organic certified land and suggested Fred try growing five acres of potatoes.
Today the farm is producing at capacity, supplying fresh potatoes in five pound bags bearing the Kentdale label.
The bags are sold in Sobey’s and Superstore in the Atlantic region with revenues exceeding $2 million a year. The farm obtained organic certification in 2001 with the Maritime Certified Organic Growers.


Since 2003, the operation has been certified with the Organic Crop Producers and Processors based in Ontario.
As demand grew for their potatoes, the family built their own packing and cold storage facility on the farm. The 2014 season has brought tricky weather, first with a cold, wet spring that delayed planting and now a dry summer. The farm was a dairy operation until the decision to sell the cows and the milk quota 15 years ago.
Conditions have improved in August, but the Dollars are also fighting wireworms and potato beetles.


Fred said he would like the Pest Management Review Agency to approve more products that are already available in the United States.
