Growfair Produce: Cornish New Potatoes

David grows the most fantastic crop of Cornish potatoes with varieties including Rocket, Minerva, Riviera and Arrow.

Situated on the fertile, south facing slopes overlooking St. Michael’s Mount near Penzance, David’s picturesque 100 acre farm is ideally located for growing Class 1 potatoes.

As the season starts, normally in early April, he supplies Growfair with First early Cornish new potatoes which are supplied in a 6.36Kg (14lb) box, before being extended to 12.5Kg and 25Kg bags as the season progresses.

David has been very impressed with the Growfair initiative….

“What Bristol Fruit Sales are doing for us (the growers) should be commended. Growing is a job you put your heart and soul into, and having it promoted under Growfair is something I’m proud to say I’m a part of”

David is a 3rd generation farmer, and has supplied BFS Direct (Cornwall) with his fresh produce for over 22 years.
