Myny Family Farm
From Aylmer, Ontario, Darryl Myny specializes in organic sweet potatoes. The trick with sweet potatoes is that, once harvested, they need to be cured, so that they can survive storage throughout the year. This is a skill that requires experience because if it is done incorrectly it can incredibly reduce the storage life. Also, to withstand the changing temperatures of our local seasons, the storing or warehousing of the sweet potatoes becomes ever more important. This is an involved process where the storage facility must stay within a specific temperature range. This adds to the needed experience that is required to properly grow, harvest, and store local sweet potatoes. With the combination of their skill and experience, Darryl and the folks at Myny Farms allow for us to have local, organic sweet potatoes for around 10 months per year!
