Hartley Farms Team
Hartley farms, established for over 40 years has wealth of knowledge in dealing with grain management, at the heart of this knowledge is a highly experienced and professional team.
Meet some of the Hartley Farms team:
Having left school in 1993, I decided to come straight home to join the family farm, which in those days consisted of a 700 acre arable unit, as well as a small grain drying and cleaning operation. Working alongside my late father Robert, after a year or two, we could see the grain management side of the business growing and we both strived to meet the continual needs for the industry and our customers. My away time mainly consists of country pursuits, sailing, motorsport and I have a keen interest in historical buildings.
I decided to join the team in April 2014 after being out on the road as driver for a local bulk haulage company, delivering grain to different mills and stores. After I joined Hartley Farms I found that my experience of the grain haulage industry tied in well with the role I had stepped into. I soon took to my new position and really enjoy being a key team member at Hartley Farms. My interests outside of work are hillwalking, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting.
After 28 years of HGV driving, I finally decided that it was time for a change, knowing that I had wanted to stay close to the farming side of things, when the opportunity to join Hartley farms came up, I thought that there was no better place to plant my feet than with Edward and Emma.
Having been delivering and collecting grain to and from Hartley Farms, there was already a friendly and well established connection made so for me it was a clear and natural decision to make.
I am very excited about joining Edward and Emma as a member of the team and look forward to working alongside them and enhancing my knowledge of the ever changing way that UK agriculture adapts and embraces the way that we feed our nation.
Coming from a farming and contracting family I have always been involved in agriculture from an early age and have a keen interest in tractors, machinery and agriculture in general.
I’m here as support and I undertake and get involved in a range of diverse tasks.
