Farming Award for Marshall’s Farm

Farming Award for Marshall’s Farm

We’re delighted to share some news on behalf of our longest standing client, Marshall’s Farm.

The farm has just been announced as the best farm (over 500 acres) and the overall champion farm at this year’s Petworth and District ploughing match. The farm was judged on its herd of dairy cows, 340 Spring calving cows, as well as crops of Maize and Winter wheat. The Judges liked the overall management of the herd, especially seeing all the cows outside grazing almost year round! They were also impressed by an expansion project happening on farm to allow an increase to 450 cows and rearing all young stock on site.

Marshall’s Farm, which is just approaching it’s 50th anniversary in 2018, was started by Edward and Joyce Lywood and is currently managed by their granddaughter Kate and her father, Roger. The family has been a client of Evans Weir since day one and remains so today, so we are pleased to share this exciting news which proves all the hard work over half-a-century has been worth it!

Congratulations!
