Two Farmers Crisps

Two Farmers Crisps founders are farmer Mark and potato merchant Sean, who over a pint and a packet of crisps one night at the pub, decided to launch a brand new range of crisps in 100% compostable bags.   Their environmental footprint is further reduced, as the potatoes are grown and graded in Herefordshire, where they are stored, cooked and packed and even the cider vinegar is made from their own apples.

The bags are plastic free and completely compostable, breaking down if disposed of in your compost bin, within twenty six weeks.   If a conscientious small company like Two Farmers can offer a this kind of revolutionary and forward thinking packaging, the big companies have absolutely no excuse.


Two Farmers make two vegan friendly crisps packed in 40 g or 150 g bags, clearly labelled 'suitable for vegans' on the packet and contain no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives



I tried the lightly salted first, which were crisp and crunchy, with just the right amount of salt and not too greasy, unlike some brands when you end up with really oily fingers, they were delicious.


I am not a major vinegar crisp fan normally, as the vinegar can be a little harsh, but these are the exception.   The salt and vinegar combination was spot on, not too much, not too little, they were crisp and light and again not too greasy and I devoured them in a jiffy.

Its a win win with Two Farmers crisps, an excellent product and the packaging is a total winner for me, gives me a warm cuddly feeling that I am not harming the environment whilst snacking.

Two Farmers crisps are available to purchase via their website, where there is also a link to local stockists (see here) and I am pleased to see I can restock at three different places in Manchester.
