incorporating The Comber Potato Company

Farming in the McKee family can be traced back as far as the early 1700's. The nucleus of today's business commenced in 1962 on a 24 hectare plot surrounding the current operation on the fertile soil of the lower southern slopes of Scrabo Hill. With "farming in the blood" this seamless line has reached as far back as the fourth generation in this area. Great grandfather "Bob" died in 1986 and grandfather "Robin" still farms with son "Ivan" and it is without doubt that grandson "Jonathan" will continue the line into the future.
