Expanding farm supply business backs awards
4:25pm Friday 1st November 2013 in Farming
MOLE Country Stores, formerly known as Farmway is proud to sponsor The Northern Farmer Awards.
Part of the Mole Valley Farmers family of companies, we are delighted to be supporting the inaugural awards evening, which recognises the achievement of farming businesses and individuals across a range of farming categories.
As a farmer-owned business, we are proud to support British agriculture and are very keen to help recognise and encourage those progressive individuals and businesses who operate at a high standard.
As an agricultural business, our aim is to support arable and livestock farmers in improving productivity, efficiencies and on-farm profitability through the provision of a wide range of products and services at competitive prices from our stores across northern England.
Sponsorship of The Northern Farmer Awards is just one of the many ways we can support agriculture and the farming community.
With a wide selection of products available in store, we offer value pricing across a range products from feed and fencing, to animal health products and clothing – we have everything you need.
We also have a team of feed and forage specialists who can visit your farm and provide, tailored advice for your individual farm requirements. Visit us in store or call our team of technical specialists, who will be happy to advise on your specific farm requirements.
Based in Devon, Mole Valley Farmers was established in 1960 and is an agricultural supply business, owned by more than 7,000 farmer shareholders, with more than 22,000 country members and 70,000 account holders and an annual turnover of more than £350m.
It has an extensive network of country stores, as well as an online operation and field sales representatives, and has expanded in recent years with the acquisition of agricultural businesses, including Central Wool Growers and Scats.
It now offers a vast range of goods and services including the 50 rural retail stores; feed mills; blending operations; a specialist mineral plant; fertilisers; seeds; chemicals; an energy business; a company which erects 200 farm buildings a year; an animal medicines section; and three veterinary practices.
The acquisition of Farmway means that Mole Valley Farmers will be serving customers from Cornwall in the South-West to the Scottish Borders.
Keith Ockenden, Mole Valley Farmers’ head of agriculture, said he saw Mole Valley as a "champion"
for farmers, ensuring they got best value through the expanded company’s scale and purchasing power.
He wished the organisers of The Northern Farmer Awards and the category entrants and eventual winners a very enjoyable evening in March.
