All vegetables at Harvey's start off as seeds. Each year some vegetables are started in the office, they then graduate to the greenhouses followed by the fields - while other vegetables start and end their journey in the field.
90% of the vegetables and fruit sold at The Big Potato are Harvey's own Field Fresh Produce. When possible the other 10% of fruit and vegetables are purchased from other local farms.
Harvey's Big Potato has rigid quality standards to ensure that Field Fresh Produce is safe to consume.
Harvey's Big Potato regularly donates to local food banks.
