Fairfields Farm Heat & Eat Crisps!

It may or may not be known that I'm a bit of a crisp fend! I always have been and always will be. So imagine my excitement when I discovered local potato farmers Fairfields Farm. 

Who are Fairfields Farm?
• 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. On our farm we cold store, wash, grade and bag twelve different potato varieties which are then supplied to wholesalers and retailers across the UK. We also grow our own special varieties of crisping potatoes which are hand cooked on the farm to the highest possible standards which is why we’re BRC (Grade A) accredited.

• We deliver our crisps and potatoes to and supply crisps to partners nationally and internationally (about 20 countries)

• We started making crisps in 2006 which then lead to the production of vegetable crisps in 2013 and most recently Lentil Bites in 2016

• Our business is entirely energy efficient, which we believe makes us the UK’s only hand-cooked crisp company powered solely by renewable energy. We spent two years planning and building a new anaerobic digestion (AD) plant the size of about 10 football fields to enable us to do this. Situated right next to the farm’s crisp factory and potato fields it has transformed our production process.

Locally grown and farmed, they even do the UK's first ever Heat and Eat crisps! Yes, that's right. Crisps that you heat in the microwave and then eat! 

Lets take a look! 
"We are not your typical potato farmers. When we invented the first ever microwaveable crisps with dip here on our family farm in Essex, our friends thought we’d finally gone completely mad!
Husband, Robert turned-up at Tesco head office with a microwave oven under one arm and a bag of handcooked crisps in the other. After demonstrating to the buying team in February last year, the concept of hot crisps with dip was born. Six months later Heat & Eat was nationwide in Tesco stores".

Available in two flavours (Sea Salt and Cheese & Chive) both come with a dip (Tomato Salsa and Caramelised Onion). Each contains 125g of crisps, which you heat for 30 seconds in the specially made packet then eat.

The instructions are marked out on the bag and are very easy to follow. 

• Unzip the bag, remove the dip, microwave for 30 seconds, then dip and eat
• Freshly cooked taste
• Designed uniquely to be microwaveable whilst retaining their crunch
• Hand cooked on the farm using renewable energy
• Gluten free

I have to say they are delicious. My favourite flavour are the Cheese & Chive ones with the Caramelised Onion dip. Very tasty indeed. I found shaking the bag, once heated, helped to 'fluff' them up before eating. The crisps went down a treat with us all here! Our friends enjoyed them too.

Heat & Eat are available in a wide selection of Tesco Stores across the UK to find your nearest stockist go to Fairfields Farm online.
