Dear customers. The potatoes are growing very well and look like being terrific quality, with the mild weather and soil moisture as it is. We have begun the very first small harvest lots for local farmer's markets and can look forward to resuming the online orders by mid January as planned. Due to the skins being soft and immature, I am nervous about posting potatoes around Christmas in case of deterioration. The very early potatoes don't have the shelf life of the main crop, and much as I'd like too supply your Christmas spuds, I would rather play it safe. Have a happy and safe Christmas and I look forward to supplying you in the new year.
The Jones family have been growing potatoes in Warragul in West Gippsland for four generations. We grow certified seed potatoes and high quality table potatoes of varieties specifically for farmers' market customers. Our specialty is Nicola although King Edward is making a strong challenge for popularity and the traditional white fleshed varieties are still in demand.
The farm is managed according to biological principles. This means we work with the natural defences already in place in the soil to control pests and diseases. We have full HACCP accreditation.
