CARROLL’S HERITAGE POTATOES is a small family business based in beautiful rural North Northumberland at Tiptoe Farm.
Heritage Potatoes are specially grown to provide you with gourmet eating qualities – excellent flavours, textures, colours, shapes and a taste of history.  Potatoes like they use to taste! Mayan Gold are unique, because they are the first potato in the UK from the indigenous Phureja potatoes of Peru.  A rich golden coloured flesh, and a moreish flavour. They have a floury flesh which results in excellent roast or chipped potatoes and excellent mash when steamed.
