Pembrokeshire for epicures and sybarites

Pembrokeshire earliesIf you’re the kind of person who marks the third Thursday in November with a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau, looks forward to enjoying wild game birds from the Scottish moors in September and the first daffodils from Cornwall in January make a note in your diary to stay in Tegfan in early May. Your stay will coincide with the first harvesting of the Pembrokeshire early potato; it has protected designation of origin and, according to DEFRA is

small in size, 15 – 70mm diameter, due to the young age of the potatoes when harvested and the fact that the ground is not cleared of stones prior to harvesting. The potato is round or oval in shape with a soft skin and distinctive strong earthy nutty flavour and aroma. It has a creamy texture and is a bright white colour which is consistent throughout …..

This delicious potato is grown on local farms, marketed by Puffin Produce (based on our side of Haverfordwest) and gets into local shops with the greatest of speed and the smallest of carbon footprints.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.
