Digging away

Oh! the pleasure of digging and counting the many beautiful potatoes under each potato stalk. I decided to get digging in the last few days as I noticed some evidence of blight. The varieties I used were said to have a good resistance to blight. Thankfully this mighty crop has been grown without any trace whatsoever of chemical sprays. I will enjoy putting my table fork into this wholesome food. I spare a thought for the many generations of potato growers gone before me on this farm. Those who resided in the beautiful old stone dwelling which is dated to about the 1850s. Thoughts of those times and potato harvests are a bit scary. The Old Stone Creamery and the Ringfort are other beautiful examples of Farmland Heritage to be explored by the visitor to Cloncannon Biofarm. Tours are available for Booking.
