The Potato Shack
HOMEGROWN JERSEY POTATOES AND FRESH SEASONAL PRODUCE SINCE 2001
Woodlands is one of the few mixed farms left in the island who still growing Jersey Royals alongside their cows.
In 2001 Richard and Nicki stopped exporting their Jersey Royals and instead opened one of the first island honesty boxes; the Potato Shack at our farm gateway.
These days honesty boxes are a common sight all over the island and the Potato Shack has grown, even selling local beef before we set up our butchers on the farm, but we've never lost sight of how we started. Since the beginning we've always know there are a few things which really matter when you're dealing with Jersey Royals:
Fresh is best... we dig them everyday, field to fork in a matter of hours.
Size does matter... Sorted into the size you like - baby chats or monster ware?
Packaging... Paper bags never plastic, we never make our potatoes sweat
Closed until April 2021
Thank you for your support this year, we look forward to the season next year.
In the meantime the Potato Shack cafe is open serving amazing local food.
Fresh seasonal Jersey produce
AND THE REST...
Outdoor grown, in the same fields fertilised by our herd and dug daily by hand.
Grown outdoors at Woodlands and never with sprays or pesticides!
Our neighbours the Blakes grow the best tomatoes in the island, we don't refrigerate them or wrap them in plastic so these taste like a tomato should!
When you can get them... The Woodlands chickens are so free-range that at times it's hard to track these beauties down - but the result is so worth it
Rhubarb, Beans, Peppers, Courgettes, Raspberries, as well as Jams & chutneys made with the left overs
WE USE AS LITTLE PACKAGING AS POSSIBLE, BRING YOUR OWN CONTAINERS OR BRING OUR BAGS BACK TO US WHERE THEY WILL BE REUSED OR RECYCLED
