Our growing areas have been carefully selected over time to produce the best potatoes, carrots and onions all year round.
The home of our early season Perlas which benefit from limited frosts in the “winterless north”, in sandloam free draining soil.
Our “home ground” where we enjoy early spring production of potatoes, carrots and onions in strong clayloam volcanic red soil. The soil is famous for producing “long keeper” onions.
The good, free draining soil with a sandy base makes this our centre for summer production of potatoes, carrots and onions which were planted in the spring.
Carrots and winter potatoes are grown through the summer, after being planted out in October and November. Stored in the ground through winter, the carrots and potatoes are easy to dig from the volcanic ash soil. It’s the ideal region for winter Red Jacket potatoes which love the winter Alpine like conditions.
Our late season potatoes, carrots and onion crops thrive in this productive soil and climate.
