We love potatoes!

Who doesn’t love a spud? They are such a staple food source all over the world. But did you know that potatoes are naturally fat-free and salt free and are a great source of fibre, potassium, and are low in sugar and naturally saturated-fat free too.

Did you know we grow potatoes on our farm, which is just four miles away from the shop? We plant them in the spring and they are harvested in the autumn. They are then kept in our cold stores, graded into bags and delivered to the shop.

At the moment, we can offer you Maris Piper, Marfona, Wilja and Electra potatoes.  Each have their own distinct characteristics:

  • Maris Piper are floury & perfect for chipping/roasting! 20kg for £6.89 and 10kg £5.60.
  • Marfona have a waxy texture and are ideal for baking, boiling, chipping and mashing! A great all-rounder. 20kg for £5.29 and 12.5kg for £3.99.
  • Wilja have a light-yellow flesh. They are floury with a slightly dry texture and are suitable for mashing, boiling, chipping and roasting.
  • The washed Electra are a great storing potato. They are versatile large potatoes. Our washed seconds are 25kg for £2.49 – please note that these are seconds and may have some cuts or discolouration.

We feel our Maris Piper potatoes are even better than the popular King Edward variety. Why not give them a go – we would love to hear your thoughts.

Maris Piper potatoes are a great floury variety and ideal for these recipes from BBC Food – http://bbc.in/2j4CQLt. Why not try and make a potato rosti or perhaps patatas bravas?
