Everyone get their dungarees because it’s time for the Potato Shin-dig at Willows Activity Farm.

Between September 3 and 30, keen harvesters can dig up and take home their own big bag of picasso potatoes.

There is more than 20 tonnes of potatoes just waiting to be harvested and an opportunity to get crafty with potato printing.

CEO at Willows, Nicola Ratcliffe, said: “The Potato Shin-dig is a really exciting moment in the Willows Activity Farm calendar.

“Being able to dig your own potatoes to take home and eat is something that everyone in the family can enjoy.

“We also love that the children get to learn in a fun and exciting way where their food comes from - parents also get the satisfaction of being able to cook with potatoes straight from the farm to plate.”
