Comber Potato Company

We’re so proud of our Comber early potatoes. These little beauties have been granted European PGI status which puts them in the same league as Champagne and Parma Ham. Deservedly so! Robin and Ivan McKee of the Comber Potato Company were instrumental in getting this award.

They eat, sleep and breathe spuds. Every May and June they’re hard at work harvesting the early potatoes. The local microclimate means they’re protected from frost. Chefs are itching to get their hands on them. They usually harvest 300 tonnes.

The rest of the year they’re planting, digging and packing baby potatoes and Maris Pipers. 1500 tonnes, no less. After all that, their favourite food is still potatoes!
