Learn about potatoes with George the Farmer

Have you ever wondered how potatoes come to be in supermarkets and onto your dinner plates?

Join George the Farmer on a visit to Farmer Tim’s South Australian potato farm, who will take you through the entire process of how a potato is grown:

Who knew there were so many varieties of potatoes!

The team here at Australian Farmers are sure looking forward to making wedges just like George the Farmer.

Did you know?

Potatoes are grown underground from other potatoes. That’s why the french word for potato is pommes de terre, which means ‘apple of the earth’!
