Fallgate Farm – the home of Heartland Potato Chips – is located in the heart of New Zealand’s South Island – South Canterbury.
The farm was named by a previous owner some 80 years ago, when a survey of the property revealed an inordinate number of gates hanging off their hinges!
Raymond and Adrienne Bowan noticed the potential in Fallgate Farm nearly four decades ago, attracted primarily by the soil, which was perfect for growing potatoes – free draining, with little-to-no stones and the scope to be well irrigated.
The sprawling property has been home to their family ever since. Today, son James and his wife Jess are raising their three children there, ushering in a third generation of Bowans who will grow up calling Fallgate Farm ‘home’.
