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 joined the team at Hartley Farms in February 2016, after working for a local agricultural contractor for 15 years. I had a small insight into Hartley Farms having previously helped on a few occasions over the last few years and I have been involved in most aspects of farming for most of my working life. Outside of work my interests include country pursuits, caravanning and spending time with my family.
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.
Meet Cat West our harvest student for 2021, we look forward to working with Cat over the coming months and helping her to understand the various processes and systems we have in place, which from a food safety issue are essential for the Food and Feed industry, once the grain has been harvested.
Over to you Cat… I am 21 years of age, and my home county is Lincolnshire, currently I am a 2nd year student at Harper Adams studying a BSC in Agriculture. My aim is to pursue a career in Agriculture with the aim of specialising in soil science and agronomy.
My intention is do a little traveling once I have graduated, hopefully going to New Zealand or America.
The Interests I have are animals, in particular cows and I enjoy helping on the farm with calving and the rearing of young stock. I also enjoy the equestrian side of things by enjoying a little eventing with my Horse called Bella.
