We grow several varieties of potatoes. I worked on the family farm with my father, a commercial potato grower, before starting my own business in 1980.

My approach to farming is that if you constantly improve the soil, it will repay you. The rich red soil on our farm and climate in Warragul help us to grow very good potatoes. We’ve tried several other crops but potatoes are what we do best.
Farmers’ markets provide a great opportunity to talk to our customers about the different varieties of potato, get their feedback and get a fair return on them.
