SLÌ EILE FARM PLANTS BRITISH QUEENS

It was all hands on deck for the last couple of week as the potatoes had to be sat.

We are using a manual planter which was bought by our Farm Manager (Jon) earlier this year and was on display at our Open  Potato Day.

The manual planter works with two members of the farm team sitting on the back of the planter whilst taking potatoes from the hopper. and dropping then into the soil as Jon drives the tractor.
