At a distance of 2 km from Dhanaulti Bus Station, Potato Farm is a farm located close to the main market of Dhanaulti. It is one of the best places to visit in Dhanaulti.

Locally called as 'Aloo Khet', the farm is spread across large strips of land, owned by the Government of Uttarakhand and some private farmers. This widespread farmland with stepped potato cultivation is a fabulous tourist attraction in Dhanaulti in a different sense. The production of potatoes is substantial and is supplied to many places outside the state of Uttarakhand. The step taken by the Indian Government to ease the growing pains of the farmer has been transformed by time into a truly striking viewpoint, which mixes terraced cultivation with the backdrop of rolling hills to give a memorable landmark to Dhanaulti.

The famous Potato Farm is also known for photogenic sunsets. The place also offers a panoramic view of the Doon Valley. Here, tourists can spend a good time walking in the green meadows of the fields. Also, tourists can hire horses to explore this picturesque spot.
