    Surely retail price needs to be more than a fiver for the correct product?

    £10 pt for bags! Without grading anything. If bulk is £180-£200 bagged stuff ought to be £40pt more imo. So £6 on the farm is about right ATM. Retail must be around £7.50-£8.50 in farm shops etc.

    I might start at £6.50. Anyone heard of other prices at the farm gate?

    A bag of spuds at £7.50 is by no means dear, that's if they are any good, sadly none that I can find are any good

    Piper, Agria or Sagitta. All good for chips,jackets,roasties. Piper maybe not so good for mash.

    All from well bodied fenland with plenty of taste!

    Apart from piper I have never heard of any of them before, pentland dell or kerrs pinks would be my first choice.

    I don't really know what a good chip potato should be like, I want dry and floury, not watery or soapy if that makes any sense

    You're giving away your origins there, with a taste for Dells or Pinks! Us immigrants are continually disappointed with the English Pruta.
