Pembrokeshire Potato Producers Named Producers of the Decade


Pembrokeshire potato producers, Trehill Farm, have dug up the ultimate accolade for their super spuds.

The Marloes farm was named as the decade's best producer at the tenth National Trust Fine Farm Produce Awards, which were held in London last night (Tuesday).

The farm's tenants, Peter and Gina Smithies, grow potatoes on 600 acres overlooking Marloes Sands and Skomer and Skokholm.

The couple took over Trehill Farm from Gina's parents in 2001 and have entered and won an award for their crop every year since 2007.

“This award gives our product a distinctive point of difference,” said a delighted Gina.

“The high profile National Trust brand helps drive sales by linking the charity's core purposes with food production. The award itself gives us the confidence to present our potatoes to all customers, large or small.”
