The Jones family have been growing high quality, specialty potatoes in Warragul, West Gippsland for four generations.
Welcome back customers. I am happy to pass on that the growing season so far has been excellent and the potatoes are showing the results. They have now reached a stage of maturity that allows us to post orders out although customers need to be aware that new potatoes and high temperatures are a bad mix. After potatoes arrive take special care to store them in the coolest and darkest area available. We expect to have most of the varieties you are familiar with this season, however in the attempt to keep costs down we will have limited amounts of the mixed boxes. Orders will be processed at least twice a week, but please understand that some times the potatoes ordered are still in the ground. 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. Over the season we will have Nicola, King Edward, Blue Moon, Dutch Cream, Wilwash, Kipfler and more available, although sometimes not all at the same time. PLEASE NOTE. Due to new weight limits for postage of boxes, and the requirement for the B2 box to contain no more than 3 kg of product, we regretfully will need to withdraw the smaller packs from our line-up from 2nd of June, 2017. I am sorry to say that removing 25% of the potatoes leaves the size unviable with package and packing costs taken into account. At this stage we expect the 10 kilo pack to remain unchanged 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.
