“They produce a wide variety of crops including potatoes, squashes, broccoli, kales, cabbages to name just a few.”

They are lucky to have a really good soil which is so dark in places it makes the unwashed potatoes look black. At the same time this soil also gives a fantastic flavour to all the crops grown in it.
