Fiddler's Farm are proud to be making the original and only 'Lancashire Crisps'. Each potato is grown on our farm and then carefully peeled before being hand cooked in our purpose build 'crispery'.

Lancashire has long been associated with potatoes – an essential ingredient in Lancashire Hot Pot. The fertile fields surrounding the market town of Ormskirk produce potatoes renowned throughout the country.

Over five decades of knowledge goes into growing our potatoes – experience handed down through the generations since Robert Fiddler established our farm in 1950.

Potato-growing goes back 50 years in John Fiddler’s family, who farm near Ormskirk. But for almost as long, the men of the clan have also wanted to make something with those potatoes. “When I was a little lad growing up,” says John Fiddler, “my dad always told me that my granddad would have liked to have made crisps. When they were picking potatoes by hand in the fields, they used to stop for the bagging, which is what they called their break and a snack. They had a packet of crisps and my granddad used to say, ‘I’ll make crisps one day’.”

Robert Fiddler, John’s granddad, died young and as small-scale farming got tougher, John’s thoughts turned again to salty snacks. “I started thinking about crisps,” he says. “We know how to grow good potatoes. I did some research, and I thought, ‘we’re going to have to do it now, because otherwise I’ll get to 60 and regret not doing it’. I went to me dad and said, ‘Have we to make crisps?’ And that was that.”

Fiddler’s Lancashire Crisps started in 2011, with small batches hand-cooked in sunflower oil by either John, his brother or his dad, who’s known as Big Bob. “Eating the first one was fantastic, you wouldn’t believe it,” says John. “It was like Christmas morning when you were about 10. I still like getting up in the morning and going in the building and switching the fryer on. There’s no better feeling. Especially when you know you’re making a good job of it.”

We’re proud to turn our delicious potatoes into even more delicious crisps. Each potato is hand cooked in small batches in pure sunflower oil. We then add the best natural flavours Lancashire can offer -  Dewlays Lancashire Cheese, Ellsey’s Malt Vinegar and the delicately spiced Lancashire Sauce – all made by producers who care about taste and tradition just as much as we do.
