Our families have been farming in East Anglia for three generations. We harvest potatoes, maize and rye on beautiful farmland across the Colne Valley just north of Colchester in Essex.
We’re the Stratherns, Laura and Robert. This is Fairfields Farm, where we live with our children. It’s where it all happens, from growing our potatoes to making our handcooked crisps, which we’ve been doing here since 2006. Not many farms can say they have a crisp factory on site!
Growing potatoes is something our families have been perfecting for three generations. Despite this long history, we’re not afraid to try new things – particularly if by changing our methods we reduce our impact on the environment around us. In fact, we’re setting our sights firmly on being the UK’s first carbon neutral crisp producer. You can find out more about our sustainability journey here
Unlike many snack and produce companies, we’re not owned by any huge corporation, or beholden to shareholders. The beating heart of our business is the incredible team we’ve built around us, who bring so much care and dedication to what they do. Because
of them, we win awards and pass inspection audits with flying colours. Because of the support of people like you, we grow and thrive.
