Placed a fairly large order last year and forgot to leave a review then, but it was a very positive experience. Variety choice was awesome (but order as early as possible--things sell out FAST) and prices were the best I've seen on small quantities of individual varieties. Product arrived when stated, as stated, well packaged and in excellent condition, with some extras thrown into each bag. I had a great harvest, some of which I saved for replanting, and ordered new varieties from her again this year.

This was my first year ordering from this vendor. I ordered some purple viking, dark red norland and nicola potatoes. I ordered them a bit late in the winter and had missed the march shipping deadline. However, I still selected the early shipping and was pleased to have received my order early. The seed potatoes were very firm healthy looking. I planted my taters at 15" spacing and 20" rows. The yield for the purple majesty was outstanding at about 12:1. The dark red norland were some of the most delicious I have ever tasted and they too had a good yield of about 9:1. The Nicola did not grow as well. I had a huge amount of tubers but they all stayed very small in the 2"-3" range. If i try them again, I will try different spacing. I plan to order from this company again.

Happy with orders for organic LaRatte Fingerlings, Dark Red Norland, and Kennebec--and Beauregard Sweet Potato slips. All very productive. I'll order them again next year from Maine Potato Lady. Overall good customer relations.
Glad Beauregards lived up to reputation of not cracking. I had had bad luck with another type the previous year from another company. Two of the slips were quite short and did not survive, but the rest did well. Kennebecs have stored well so far. Fingerlings did well--once I learned I needed patience to wait longer than planned for larger sizes. I was new to them.
I did have to initiate an inquiry on a delay on my shallot order. The company had to cancel the shallots order due to poor weather conditions. My money was promptly returned.

My experience this year with the Maine Potato Lady has so far been great. I ordered my conventional Red Pontiac and organic German Butterball seed potatoes in January with the promise they would be here mid-April and they were received the first week of April in excellent condition. I am still waiting for my sweet potato slips which should be shipped near the middle of May and will keep the Watchdog community updated.

On July 5th, 2013, Tim Hawley (Silver L added the following:

Received my Beauregard sweet potato slips on time and in excellent condition. Was somewhat disappointed that I was 2 plants short of my order when the other farm I order from usually send 2-3 extra slips per variety to account for any losses in shipping. Was also surprised to see how short the slips were. I prefer the longer slips since I plant in hills rather than furrows due to the make up of our soil. Overall, I was impressed with the quality of my orders and thought the customer service was above average. Took a chance with the sweet potato slips, will probably continue ordering from my usual source instead but will definitely continue to order my potato seed from the Maine Potato Lady!

I ordered for varieties of potatoes from them this spring. They arrived on time. Because our tractor broke down, I was about four weeks late getting them in the ground. When I opened the bags two potatoes were rotten out of the whole bunch. Not sure if they were sent rotten or because I had them for 4 weeks before they were planted. In any event, my overall experience was positive and I would consider buying from them again next year.

This is my second year ordering with this company. I have had great experiences both times. My potato crop was great last year. All of the items I ordered arrived on time and are in good shape.

Ordered 5# of the All Blues and was thrilled to recieve lovely many eyed smallish potatoes. They planted three 25' rows! I had also ordered three other varieties from a different supplier and was sorry I did after comparing them to what I got from The Maine Potato Lady. Found her to be friendly and warm to talk to on the phone too.

Communication is a little strained, but her products are well worth it! The All Blues, All Reds, and German Butterballs are some of the best potatoes I've ever grown!

Although I ordered late for my home garden, a hand-written note and return check for one out-of-stock variety was sent immediately. When the other seed potatoes arrived they were in excellent condition, and we are still (Feb.) enjoying some of the crop.

I was very pleased with the quality of the Red Sun shallots that I received. The bulbs were of good size and color, and were obviously well-grown, well-cured, and well-stored. The customer service was excellent and my order arrived in a timely manner.
