There are different feeders you can make and the event is fun for all ages.

Spring seeds from Growing Newsome

Growing Newsome usually have our annual Huddersfield Potato Day and Seed Swap on the first Saturday in March. This year we’ve come up with an alternative to help you get growing your own potatoes – and other things.

You can order seed potatoes, onion sets and vegetable seeds from us online, then collect from Newsome village. If you’re shielding or self-isolating and live locally, we’ll do our best to deliver to you at home.

Our seeds have already been really popular, and we’re keeping our website up to date so that you know what we have available at the moment.

Find out more and request some seeds at:
