The Jones family have been growing high quality, specialty potatoes in Warragul, West Gippsland for four generations.
WELL,THAT'S IT FOR US THIS SEASON OF 2017. The remaining potatoes are at a point where the dormancy is starting to break, and although the potatoes are still perfectly good to eat they are now below the standard that we aim for. At risk of unsettling some of our good customers we must reluctantly call it a day for the next few months. All the usual varieties will be planted for the coming season and hopefully we can re-open at some point in December. Thanks very much for your custom this season and we look forward to some fresh supplies later in the 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. 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.
