This September saw the Farm Park host it’s first ever Potato Patch and we’ve had a spud-tacular time!
Back in May we planted approximately 10,000 seed potatoes of two varieties. These gave us a whopping 15 tonnes of spuds for you guys to dig.
We also held a ‘#spudselfie’ competition to win annual membership. To enter we asked for photos of you with your freshly harvested potatoes, after you’d crafted them into something creative. We had some cracking entries so a huge thank you to all who entered.
The tubers grow deep under ground and we suspect that a few of these golden nuggets might have evaded the reach of our hard working visitors. Finding these left over spuds won’t be a problem for our pigs however, they’ll be foraging in this area for the tasty treats later in the year.
