Fewer Steps Between

Harvest And Home Means
Fresher, Tastier Veg.





Local Farmers
James and Mark McKee


have had a passion for growing fresh and tasty premium quality root vegetables in


Northern Ireland

Since 1989


For us it’s all about local. Local fresh produce, expertly grown, in fields situated on the northern shore of Strangford Lough between Comber and Newtownards.

Comber’s cool damp weather and sandy soils are ideal for producing delicious fresh vegetables.

ALL GROWN IN COUNTY DOWN, WITHIN AN HOUR OF THE FARM, OUR PRODUCE IS AS FRESH AS IT CAN BE.

Marketplace




The owners, Mark, James and Gwen McKee pride themselves on being one of the leading producers and packers of quality assured vegetables to the main supermarkets in Northern Ireland.

We are the sole local suppliers of carrots, parsnips and brassicas to

Sainsbury's NI



and a main supplier of vegetables to

Tesco and Hendersons

In addition to supplying the market under our own Fresh Fields and Dig-In brands, we pack for multiples and symbol groups, in their own packaging, in our purpose built pack-house.
