WHEN WILL I GET MY ORDER?
We are currently selling new potatoes and are harvesting to order which means we dig them in the morning, pack the in the afternoon and they are picked up by Parcelforce at tea time. We are sending them out every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday on a 24hr basis for local (Lothians/Fife/Stirling/Falkirk/Borders) and 48hr basis for the rest of the UK. Parcelforce will text you and email you so you can track your order.
WHY IS THERE NOW A DELIVERY CHARGE?
*Please also note that it costs a lot more than £1.50 to send a parcel (up to 30kg) and we absorb all the remaining courier charge at our end.

TRACEABILITY & SUSTAINABILITY
the grower you can be assured of perfect traceability. We can tell you
everything about your potatoes from where the seed came from, planting
date, harvesting date, storage shed location, and packaging date. We
normally dress and bag your potatoes the day before delivery. Also,
because our potatoes aren’t washed they will keep for around a month as
long as they are stored in a cool, dry dark place – perfect to have as a
‘go to’ item for many meals.
From the time the potatoes are
harvested and arrive on the farm from the fields they are kept in wooden
boxes, and the farm solar panels power all the storage buildings,
heating, air fans, grading / sorting equipment and bagging / packing
Food miles are very very low in comparison. Your potatoes
don’t go from a farm to a processing plant to a distribution depot to a
supermarket to your door. They go straight from the farm to your
doorstep so the impact on the environment is as low as possible.
