Shopping for spuds!
The small shed is usually deserted so we help themselves to our bag of choice, slotting payment into a locked cash box. There is an exercise book and pen but I'm not sure whether we are sposed to record what we bought as I've only encountered the farmer on my first visit.
Historically, the Romsey area "was rich farming land and provided a "food basket" for travelers to the gold fields in the mid-to-late 1800s. Potatoes were grown for many years, until WW2 caused farming to change to sheep and cattle."
