Potatoes

Philip Benzie

From his farms in in Aberdeenshire and Morayshire, Phillip provides us with the ever popular Maris Peer potatoes, which have a light, fresh flavour.

HOW THEY ARE GROWN

The sandy soils of Moray are ideal for growing potatoes, being rich in organic matter, with good drainage and aeration

SEASONALITY

The potatoes are planted in late March and April and harvested in August and September.

FUN FACT FROM SCOTTY

You might be tucking into a wind powered tattie! Phillip has installed a 100 metre wind turbine to generate electricity which enables the farm to run off renewable power.
