The Crisp Factory
The crisp factory at Fairfields Farm adjoins the washing and packhouse facility. Potatoes are washed and graded before entering the crisp manufacturing side of the operation.
The potatoes are weighed to a set batch size, before being sliced and handcooked in sunflower oil.
The cooked crisps are then inspected thoroughly before entering the flavouring drum which applies our range of flavours.
The flavoured crisps are finally weighed and bagged off into 40g or 150g bags before being packed into cardboard cases ready for sale.
A simple process, but it takes a whole lot of work to get from a seed potato to a bag of crisps!
