About Us
HISTORY

Monaghan Farms is a product of a long line of potato farmers, six generations and counting. That tradition continues to this day as it is truly a family effort. The end result of all that experience is a company committed to quality and dependability.
We have a rich history of potato farming in the Curley family. Our early ancestor Thomas Curley, was one of a million Irish people who emigrated from Monaghan County in Ireland in the 1840’s during the Great Potato Famine. He settled in the Freetown area of PEI and established a mixed farm. That original acerage is still being farmed by the Curley family today. Over the years, the potato acreage grew and in 1982 Monaghan Farms started selling potatoes in the processing market. In the past, Monaghan Farms has grown potatoes for Frito Lay, McCains, Cavendish Farms and Humpty Dumpty. Today we grow only chip potatoes for Frito Lay.

In collaboration with local growers, we supply product to Frito Lay plants in Canada, the US, South East Asia, Central America, South America and the Carribean. Monaghan Farms and West Isle Enterprises have been successful in shipping potatoes and have them arrive at the various plants well within the quality grade. We are now one of the largest suppliers for Frito Lay in terms of raw product for export.
