About Us
Ben & Suus VanderWeele immigrated from the Netherlands to Alaska in 1967 and began farming in Palmer soon thereafter. Ben is a 10th generation farmer and all three of his grown children have followed in his footsteps, returning to help run the farm. VanderWeele Farm remains one of Alaska's largest farms with around 200 acres in cultivation; close to half of that is in potatoes. In addition, they also grow large amounts of lettuce, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, plus a handful of specialty crops for Arctic Harvest.
