September 2021 Potato Harvest

The weather was fine for the 2021 Potato Harvest at Bennison Farm.

Lots of members came along to help bring in the potatoes and see the tractor in action!

Many hands made light of the work, and we were able to lay down a store of nearly three tonnes of tats. Plenty to keep us going through the winter, with several different varieties to add some diversity to our dishes.  The potatoes grown this year were Twinner, Heidi (the red fleshed potato), Sarpo Axona, Carolus and Alouette.   They even have a new home for the winter, in the form of an old lorry container.

We hope those of you who made it along had a good time – we certainly had one happy young member, who’s mum emailed us to say;

‘A wonderful morning that my 2 year old is still talking about!!! It was wonderful helping to harvest, seeing the tractor, and then best of all bring a few of these yummy spuds home. Thank you so very much’ – Abbie Cole

We’re already looking forward to next years harvest, and hope to see lots of you there!
