Cornish new potatoes

Paul Babcock

Meet Paul Babcock. Paul grows our organic new potatoes on his farm in Cornwall, just one mile from the sea, within view of St Michael’s Mount.

Organic potatoes

Paul’s family have been there since 1958 and he has been growing organically for seven years. He also owns a pub locally, where  he sells his vegetables and meat.

The high light levels and mild temperatures make Paul’s land ideal for growing new potatoes. The farm is above slate, which means it is free draining and has warmer soil. This rainy season has been particularly good for the potatoes, which you can order from Riverford.
