Harvest Time on Jersey

Our main outdoor crop is hand-planted from January through to April, with harvesting starting in April, and continuing through to July. Early-crop potatoes, planted on the steep côtils, are still harvested by hand using a winch and plough system, because mechanical harvesters can only be used on the later-planted, flatter fields.

Once harvested, the potatoes are carefully checked before being washed, hydro-cooled and packed.
