Garford Farm Machinery Appoints Doubleday

As of February 1st 2019 Doubleday Group will be representing Garford Farm Machinery exclusively across Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk. Garford Farm Machinery are specialists in the row crop equipment market, with machines developed and manufactured to make precision farming more efficient. A wide range of precision hoe’s and specialist equipment are produced for use in the vegetable and salad production part of the agricultural industry. As well as this highly specialised type of machine, they also produce more mainstream equipment such as sugar beet hoe’s and inter row cultivators. Harry Coppin, UK and Ireland Sales Manager for Garford Farm Machinery commented “Appointing Doubleday as a Garford Farm Machinery dealer was the logical choice for Garford. Doubleday are seen locally as the “go to” dealer for a professional service and have a long track record dealing with farmers growing specialty crops. With the continued pressure to reduce herbicide use and increased consumer focus on improving environmental status in the UK and Ireland, the need for accuracy and targeted application is becoming more commonplace. The partnership with Doubleday Group allows Garford Farm Machinery to reach out to new customers within the East Anglia region whilst maintaining the strong relationship with existing customers.”

Garford Farm Machinery was established in 1986 and are based at Deeping St James, Peterborough. Garford take pride in listening to the grower and identifying their specific needs for the produce they grow. Across the world there is a move towards the reduction of chemical use in crop production, and with the need for farmers to protect their crops the only option in many cases is to remove unwanted plants mechanically rather than chemically. Alex Child, Group Sales Manager of Doubleday Group commented “The opportunity to work with Garford Farm Machinery is really exciting. Our customer base demands a high-quality product, and Garford have a proven track record for delivering. The technology in some of the machines is amazing, and we were really pleased to see Garford win the Gold Arable Innovation Award for their baby salad hoe at LAMMA 2019. The Doubleday team are currently undergoing product training, so feel free to ask us if you would like to know more.”
