Our Story

The Clintons have lived in the Skerries area of North County Dublin since the early 1700s where we have farmed ever since. Starting out originally as tenant farmers and then acquiring our own land in the 1860s. 

Through traditional farming techniques the Clinton family expanded throughout the Fingal area. Originally supplying hay and potatoes to the Dublin markets Clintons put up one of the first haysheds in the parish before the turn of the century. As well as also being the first to install a wind charger to generate electricity, the mast of which stood at 200 feet remained until 1973 until it was damaged by a severe storm. 
Forever changing and adapting to the climate, 150+ years of farming later Loughbarn Farms Ltd was set up in 2017 to produce Clintons Hand Cooked Artisan Irish Crisps. The idea was born when brothers Sean who has worked in the crisp and snack industry for over 25 years and Martin who has a lifetime experience growing potatoes decided to add value to potatoes grown on the family farm in Skerries, Co. Dublin.
 
Built on 7th Generation farming expertise and an accumalative 98 years' experience in the crisp and snack industry, Clintons Crisps started trading in August 2018.
