William Orr and Son
William Orr and Son grow around 200 acres every year. They grow potatoes and cereals as well as finishing beef cattle.
Potatoes are grown in rotation with cereal crops, grass silage and grazing pasture. This allows the soil to rest between each crop of potatoes and results in better quality, disease-free spuds that are full of flavour.
Growing around 10 varieties, the season starts with the famous PGI Comber Earlies using varieties such as Home Guard and Accord. Mid-season favourites include Queens and Maris Peer. Popular main crop varieties such as Maris Piper, Navan and Rooster along with old niche varieties Kerr’s Pinks, Arran Victory (Blues) and Dunbar Standards.
William Orr and Son received a Gold Star in The Great Taste Awards for their Arran Victory – “Balls of Flour”.
With a strong commitment to nature friendly farming they care about the countryside and environment, using sustainable farming practices and working in harmony with nature are at the core of their business.
Their products are available throughout Northern Ireland or you can visit their farm in Raffrey, Co. Down.
