Robins Glen working towards producing, Irish organic certified seed potatoes.
The varieties we are growing are Almonda a firm cooking potato and Belmonda which is a drier variety.
These are blight resistant varieties and there is little need to spray them. If it is a bad blight year like last year and the foliage becomes badly affected, you just cut off the tops and the tubers will be safe from blight.
It is a two year process, as our seed potatoes must be grown on our farm for two years before they can be certified as organic seed potatoes.
The seed we have for sale this year has been grown organically but are not organically certified and would not be suitable for commercial organic farming. However, it has been certified by the department for commercial use.
