Our British Potato Growers

There is something very British about chips – an iconic accompaniment to many a meal. When tucking in to your chips at Wetherspoon, you can rest assured that they are British-grown potatoes, by families such as the Lee family from Cambridgeshire.

Tony Lee runs the farm, with more than a little help from sons Robert and Stephen, plus daughter Sarah.

This is a real family effort, as Tony explains: “Stephen is ultimately responsible for growing the crop; Robert takes care of storing it; Sarah takes care of marketing and selling. I just keep a watchful, experienced eye on all of them! As a family, we have been growing potatoes now for 50 years. 

“The quality of the land is key: good soil and proper drainage, but also plenty of moisture. Yes, technology can help you along, but, to grow great potatoes, you have to have a feel for it. 

“The challenges are many, but our family takes great pride in helping to maintain the quality of ‘the great British chip’.”
