HEREFORDSHIRE crisp-makers Sean Mason and Mark Green are launching a new flavour – sausage-and-mustard.

The two local farmers who have built up a successful snacks business have teamed up with well-known rare and wild meats producer Tudges.

The Tudge family has been rearing Berkshire pigs for more than 20 years, and like other producer partnerships that Two Farmers are working with they put low food miles, quality and sustainability at the heart of what they do.  

Sean said: "This new addition will really complement our current range.

"The Tudge family has an excellent reputation in the county and we felt that a Herefordshire Sausage and Mustard would be a winning flavour."

The Tudge partnership fits well with the Two Farmers philosophy of being kind to the planet and managing the countryside in a sustainable way.

Two Farmers, which is based at Peterstow, is the UK's first sustainable crisp brand, and it pioneering the UK's first plastic-free and compostable crisp packet.

The new flavour is now available at Pengethley Farm shop, near Ross-on-Wye, with further availability across Herefordshire in the coming weeks.

Sean and Mark decided to diversify into crisp making in 2016.

Mark’s family has been growing potatoes for decades and they converted a potato store into the crisp factory just a few miles from the fields where the potatoes are grown.

They began selling their crisps in 2018. They hand cook them in small batches before adding the special flavourings, powering the process with renewable energy produced on the farm from their own anaerobic digester.

In a joint statement, Sean and Mark say: "As farmers living and working in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside we have seen

first-hand the impact plastic waste can have on the environment.

"We want to protect this for our families and generations to come, so we worked hard to find a plastic-free bag for our crisps.

“Our farm has won an award for being the UK’s Most Carbon Neutral farm. We want to continue this with our crisp band.

“Our intention was always to build a brand that respected our countryside and made use of the potatoes we grow and shine a light on local ingredients.”

Since their launch they have also found time to support local charities, providing crisps to sample and auction at events.

They also sponsor their local rugby club and Welsh Newton YFC and provide tours for small school groups.

Two Farmers has recently been nominated by leading grocery trade title The Grocer as Startup of The Year, and this week Two Farmers has reached the finals of the Great British Food Awards.
