With SAVOURSMITHS (www.SAVOURSMITHS.com), we have created a potato crisp brand with audaciously luxurious crisps made with potatoes harvested from our own British farm in Cambridgeshire using only the finest ingredients. Our creative crisps are fuelled by the local fields and we are involved in the process from start to finish. Everything we do is made from scratch and we influence what is sown, when it is harvested and how our crisps get prepared. We hope that our attention to detail along the journey both informs and is reflected in our decadent potato crisps.
Our business was founded by recently married couple and Colette and Mike Russell Smith, who moved back to the family farm and are now taking the business in a modern direction. Our objective is to build on the pioneering heritage of Russell Smith Farms and British Farming. Our family has been farming potatoes since 1938 and understands the importance of traceability and sustainability, using accredited farming methods and championing sustainable agriculture to ensure culinary excellence. Russell Smith Farms started out in the 1970s growing just 15 acres of potatoes, and has since significantly grown. We now grow over 700 acres of potatoes with 15 different varieties, all of which is done in a very sustainable manner. The family farm is a member of FWAG, LEAF & the Soil Association and is signed up to the Government’s stewardship schemes. SAVOURSMITHS is also a member of LEAF; an initiative committed to traditional farming practises paired with modern technology that reduces environmental impact.
