ALONG THE ANGUS COASTAL ROUTE

FIELD TO FORK

FROM OUR FAMILY FARM TO YOUR DINNER TABLE

01

THE FIELD

Winter

With plenty of natural rainfall, Scotland’s climate is ideal for growing potatoes. In the winter, we test the soil for nutrients and decide what varieties to grow in which field.

We then plough to turn the soil and break down the old stubble left by last year’s cereal crop which is excellent organic matter for next season’s growth.

02

Planting

Spring

To prepare the soil, we remove stones with a stone separator, as the harvester doesn’t know the difference between a stone and a potato, and we fertilise the soil before planting.

The potatoes are planted in April and May into reasonably dry soil — as the ground warms up and dries further.

03

GROWING

Summer

We watch for the crop rising through the ground, removing weeds that compete with the potatoes. We also plant wildflowers around the headland and in strips up the fields.

This is a natural way to protect the crop from insects and disease, encouraging bees and other wildlife which eat pests like aphids, while also building greater biodiversity.

04

HARVESTING

Autumn

In September and October, the harvester gently lifts the potatoes out of the ground, shaking the earth off and depositing them in a one-ton potato box.

These boxes are driven back to our store where we sample them for skin quality and sort them into categories, which is called grading (and what the children of every potato farmer do in their tattie holidays!)

05

THE MASH

Potatoes chosen for our tasty mash dishes are washed and peeled, then cooked and mashed by James and team.

The mash is seasoned and, depending on the flavour we are making, extra ingredients are added, purely for taste and nothing else! This could be milk and butter, spicy chorizo or Scottish haggis. Yum!

06

LET'S EAT

The mash is packed and vacuum sealed for freshness, ready to be enjoyed at your kitchen table.

Throughout the process there are many quality checks but the final one is at the end where the product is inspected before being packaged up and dated.

It’s now ready for the shelf and, most importantly, your dinner table!
