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
We will have Royals on the honesty box from this Saturday
We look forward to seeing you
Fresh seasonal Jersey produce
Outdoor grown, in the same fields fertilised by our herd and dug daily by hand.
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!
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
