Grass remains the most viable form of forage feed available to beef, sheep and dairy farmers. Our role is to provide you with the highest quality short, medium and long term mixes which suit your business needs, as well as offering bespoke advice on cost-effective reseeding programmes to ensure you’re getting the best gains from grass forage.
We carefully study all trials information from the Recommended Grass and Clover List for England and Wales and regularly visit breeder trials. This enables us to pick and choose the best varieties to grow on contract, to produce seed for our mixture range.
Step 2: Growing our own grass seed
In order to ensure quality and value, we grow a large proportion of our grass seed on contract with local farms, primarily on the high grade, fertile soils of Herefordshire.
Step 3: Cleaning our own grass seed
This seed is cleaned at our modern, purpose built seed plant at Astley, Shrewsbury. Recently a new cleaning line was installed guaranteeing even higher purity standards are achieved.
Step 4: Analysis of our own grass seed
Our grass seed is sent to the laboratory for rigorous testing to ensure that we have the highest purity and germination results, ensuring all seed meets HVS (Higher Voluntary Standard).
Step 5: Formulating our own grass mixtures
We select the best varieties in each category to ensure optimum mixture performance.
Step 6: Mixing our own grass mixtures
Whether it is a mixture from our standard range or a bespoke mixture, our on-site mixing facilities mean that we have the flexibility to mix what we need, when we need it. This ensures prompt delivery onto the farm.
Step 7: Selling our own grass mixtures
Our dedicated sales force has the experience and knowledge to advise you on what mixture would suit your farm enterprise, so that you get the most out of your grass ley.
Step 8: Delivering our own grass mixtures
When required, we will deliver all standard mixtures and small seeds the next working day.
