Harvesting underway at Robertson

Hand with potatoes

Potato harvesting has started at Robertson, with the recent rains really spurring on growth.

Local farmer John Hill will harvest about 20 tonnes of spuds a week up until July/August.

They'll go on the market locally from this weekend, with the majority sent to the Flemington Markets in Sydney.

Mr. Hill says there are many reasons why the Robertson spuds are in such high demand and that includes our cooler climate, which gives them a better taste.
