what is price of potatoes for wilja and marfona on the farm gate in 25 kg bags
Pipers last week where I was helping out ,going in tn boxes,straight of field @£180 pt so thats £4.50 ,,seems to be the same for other varieties other than Edwards which were over 300 tn .
£4.50-5.00 selling at car boot on sunday
Surely retail price needs to be more than a fiver for the correct product?
yea we are £6 per bag or £240 per ton,and selling a lot.just wondered if we should be a bit more...keep hearing that people had poorish yields round about lot of poor potatoes...
Whites £210/ tonne delivered in bulk
£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?
Seems to have been £5 a bag here for years (apart from 2013) Try £6.50, let us know how you get on?
I have heard Agria are £250 /tonne next week in bags.
Going up but in danger of getting overcooked.
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
If you pardon the pun!
We've got some nice ones! A bit far to come though?
A local farmer here has piper at £7 a bag at the side of the road.
What have you got? Bound to be able to send them over here
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've never had those two. Chip potato country here.
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.
