Hartley Farms History
The year was 1977 when Edward’s late father Robert, having been farming a pig and arable unit, decided to install a 4 tonne Wilder batch dryer, this being fully automated and a big investment at the time was coupled in with a Law Denis d200 cleaner, this laid the foundations to where Hartley Farms is today. Drying and cleaning grain became an increasingly sought after service within our local farming community, with our local growers and merchants using these facilities, screening malting barley was in those days and still is today a service in high demand.
To this day a vast wealth of knowledge has been created over the years, so many different commodities have had so many different issues and we always aim to prove the old adage wrong, you can’t make a mermaids purse out of a Sows ear, well we like to think we can.
Since those early years Hartley Farms has continued to grow and install the latest cutting edge in technology, continuing to meet the high demand for the food and feed industry and its customers and consumers. From field to end user we provide an ever increasingly important link within the industry.
