Highflyer Farms are one of the largest individual producers in the UK, serving chip shops predominately the length and breadth of the country. Many of our potatoes also are exported to Ireland.
Highflyer Farms strive to produce top quality chipping potatoes for the industry and take pride in being one of the industries market leaders.
The main farm office is based at Highflyer Hall, Ely with the farms pack house being at Sutton Gault, near Sutton. The entire potato crop is either stored onsite at our pack house or on the other storage facilities in a 25 mile radius of Sutton. We have a range of stores to ensure continued quality from September to the end of June.
The Farm is always looking for areas to rent for their potato acreages and will travel up to 25 miles from any one storage facility to consider it viable
Tattersall's grand plan for Highflyer was built to make him rich, and it certainly accomplished its task. Tattersall would breed Highflyer to as many mares as possible, bringing in income from the stud fee (a practice for which he was criticised, as many thought he was over-breeding the animal and later pointed to Highflyer's death at 19 to be proof of that fact). To help accomplish this, he stood his stallion at his Red Barns farm for the initial fee of 15 guineas, eventually raising the fee to 50 guineas. Estimates have found that Tattersall made at least 15,000 pounds each year off of Highflyer breedings, from which he build a mansion at aptly named it Highflyer Hall.
