Over the years, our range has grown to include a vast variety of scoffable snacks, but we still call the Herefordshire countryside our home. (It’s where all the good fields and pubs are.)
A day on the farm
It’s an early wake
up call on Tyrrells
Farm each day
We started making Crisps at Tyrrells Court Farm back in 2002, and we’re still here today! Scroll down to take a look at our timeline.
We use British potatoes from carefully selected farmers, our favourites being Lady Rosetta and Lady Claire. They’re the names of the potatoes, not the farmers. Just to be clear.
In a small converted potato shed at Tyrrells Court Farm, the first hand-cooked Tyrrells crisps tumbled out of a fryer and were sent to our favourite local farm shops and delis to try.
With five potato crisp seasonings in the bag, the team turned their hand to making parsnip, beetroot and carrot crisps creating a celebration of roots at their most resplendent.
Our crisps seem to be appealing overseas, a craving we felt obliged to cater for so we popped some on a voyage to France & Ireland.
Strawberry & Sweet Chilli “Love crisps” were brought to life and we hand wrote 2000 valentine cards for our beloved Tyrrellers.
The Duchess of Cornwall was airdropped by a chopper in our garden specially to taste test our scrumptious crisps. She was quite impressed if we do say so ourselves!
Out popped our perfectly popped kernels, producing our famous Poshcorn.
With the gentleman’s palette in mind, we seeked the land for a sturdy hummus shovel. Our Furrow, crinkly cut crisps were born.
10 years, 120 months, 3652 days, 87660 hours, 5259600 minutes, 315576000 seconds creating our splendid crisps.
In true Downton Abbey style, we met Her Majesty The Queen and told her all about the farm. She commented that “it’s all about the flavours these days I suppose!”.
We couldn’t agree more Mam’!
To celebrate her Diamond Jubilee, we inaugurated our British red, white & blue crisps. All with natural colourings, that’s right, blue spuds!
In a true sporting manner, we created our Cricket Tea Crisps limited edition for the summer.
Beep Beep! We offered our Tyrrellers the chance to win a mini with every pack they crunched.
The finest ingredients are always at the centre of what we do, with that in mind we used the most sumptuous of culinary delicacies, the black truffle to create a crisp ideal for ritzy get togethers.
Jolly Good Scoop! We churned our thoughts into one big tub of delicious ice cream using every last crumb of our crisps. We do love a good April fools!!
We raised a crisp of sparkle to the wonderful union of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with our Ginger & Sparkle royal wedding pack.
To celebrate Valentine’s day, we launched our Aphrodisiac crisps. A tenderly bracing duo of the tantalising tingle of chilli with sweet and sticky honey. A helping hand to get your heart racing.
We cracked open the Tyrrells Nut Medley range, offering a spiffingly superior breed of nibble. Combining the finest nuts we could forage with delightfully delectable seasonings, they’re perfect for adding some nutty pizzazz to any soiree.
Our new Lentil crisps are tyrrellbly tyrrellbly tasty! An exquisitely light and crunchy crisp, with oodles of flavour, they may just be too good to share!
As proud Herefordians we use potatoes from local farmers, our favourites being Lady Rosetta and Lady Claire. They’re the names of the potatoes, not the farmers. Just to be clear.
