Carters' Fresh Dug Potatoes

Dave Carter knows his potatoes, and the family farm nestled in warm climes near geographe bay has been in his family for generations. Like his father, grandfather and great-grandfather before him, Dave works the rich soils planting paddocks of heirloom varieties from around the world.

Dave knows the creamy maris piper potato prefers the warm, mineral rich dark soils of the winter paddocks, while the spanish colorado prefers the loose, red soils of the summer paddock. Kiffler, dutch cream, nicola and royal blues; each bag of heirloom potatoes is freshly dug and gently brushed free of its home soil.
Chefs across the Margaret River Region have embraced the flavoursome produce and Carters’ Freshly Dug Potatoes have found their way onto the plates of over twenty restaurants throughout the region and beyond. Fortunately, Dave saves some of his precious potatoes for the locals and attends the Margaret River Farmers’ Market, where bags of potatoes happily find their way into kitchens for Sunday roasts, creamy mash and exotic curries.

The Margaret River Region stretches 100kms from Augusta and Cape Leeuwin in the south, to Yallingup and Cape Naturaliste in the north. Between these two capes with their lighthouses shining safe passage for over a century is stunning coastline, majestic forests and fertile farmlands. Already renowned for its fine wines and perfect waves, the Margaret River Region is now capturing the world’s attention for its food. From handmade chocolate and artisan cheese to super healthy grass-fed beef and heirloom organic fruit and vegetables, the delicious produce from this beautiful region is ripe for discovery. At the centre of this exciting, sustainable food and wine movement is the Margaret River Farmers’ Market, a weekly market where customers can connect with regional producers, knowing that they are supporting local livelihoods and sustainable farming practices. Every producer has their own story – from baker to winemaker, potatoes to permaculture – all have travelled on their own unique journey to become producers of handcrafted food or wine with the taste of the south west in every mouthful, and the wellbeing of land and community at heart.
