TBI Potato Day 2018

TBI Potato Day  2018

TBI's 8th Potato Day will be held on Saturday 3rd March at North Kessock Village Hall.

There will be two sessions, from 11.00 - 1.00 and 1.30 - 3.00, with the usual wide range of seed potato varieties on sale at 15p per tuber.  Please bring your own bags.

Admission is £1.00, TBI members and under-16s free.  Refreshments - soup and rolls, tea, coffee and cakes - will be available all day.

Potatoes will be held back for the afternoon session so most varieties will be available all day.  Any potatoes remaining after our event will be on sale at subsequent Black Isle Community Markets.

News report  -  Another Successful Potato Day

TBI's 8th potato day, held last Saturday at North Kessock, was as successful as ever.  Over sixty varieties of seed potatoes were on sale, and numbers bought ranged from three to four hundred.  In addition to potato sales expert growing advice was available, there were seed swap and TBI information stalls, and a café offering soups, drinks and a delicious array of home baking.

Thanks are due to TBI and Food Group Convenor Julie Gibson for masterminding the whole event, Trish McKeggie and Maggie Wormald for selecting and procuring the potatoes and providing expert advice, James Dingwall for providing transport, Jimmie Hepburn and Duncan Scott for co-ordinating and overseeing in the hall, Lesley Robb and her helpers for the non-stop café service, and all the other volunteer helpers too numerous to name who helped to make the day a success.

We would also like to thank the following local growers/suppliers for donations of potatoes: Callum at Drumderfit Farm, Donald Campbell at Resolis Mains and Steven Jack of Organic Potato Growers, Dalcross.
