Sweet Potato Farm – Acadian Family Farm

Acadian Family Farm is located near Fort Cobb Lake in Caddo County, Oklahoma.   The farm is owned and operated by us – Rod and Nanette Ardoin. We are growers, packers and shippers of Certified Organic Sweet Potatoes.  As of March, 2013, all of our farm – 80 acres – is Certified Organic with ODAFF (Oklahoma Dept. of Agriculture, Food & Forestry).  We are also G.A.P. Certified with the USDA.  We only sell what we grow; and have 30 years of growing experience –  5 of which was spent selling a wide variety of vegetables in Austin, Tx  and having a vegetable club in Victoria, Texas.   Wanting to expand, we relocated to Oklahoma in May, 2011 and specialize in Sweet Potatoes, red, orange, white and purple Japanese varieties.

So what is an Acadian?  “Acadians” are the descendants of the 17th century French colonists who settled in Acadia, Canada, and who later resettled in a region of Louisiana now referred to as Acadiana. They were known for their small, self-sufficient farms.  That is our farm’s heritage.  Rod and I are originally from southwest Louisiana and are of French descent.   In keeping with this tradition, we pledge to bring you top quality, locally-grown, Certified organic Sweet Potatoes.
