Fram Farmers to Benefit from Claydon Equipment Rebates

Exclusive rebates on the full range of Claydon equipment are now available to members of Fram Farmers, the UK’s foremost farmers cooperative.

The new incentive programme will allow Fram Farmers’ (formerly Atlas Fram) 1250 members, who collectively farm more than 350,000 hectares across 39 counties, to benefit from valuable financial savings on all new Claydon products. Under the terms of the deal they will have unique access to manufacturer’s rebates on the full range of Claydon patented strip seeding drills, Straw Harrows and Cambridge Rolls.

“We are delighted to be working closely with such a large, well-respected farmers’ cooperative to extend the range of benefits which they are able to offer,” states Charlie Eaton, Claydon’s UK & Ireland Sales Manager. “Fram Farmers members are typically progressive, forward-thinking farmers who appreciate the benefits of harnessing the latest technology to enhance the productivity and financial performance of their businesses. The range of Claydon products will help them to significantly reduce production costs while at the same time benefiting agronomic performance and ultimately increasing both yields and profitability.”

Simon Scott, Machinery Buyer for Fram Farmers, adds: “This is good news for our members, many of whom are existing Claydon customers and have given us very positive feedback on the company, its products and service. Being able to provide members with preferential rates on the Claydon range will further enhance the benefits available through our unique Machinery Scheme. Each year we purchase over £11 million worth of agricultural equipment on behalf of members, making it the largest and most successful of its type in the UK.”

To benefit from the preferential terms which are on offer members simply submit a copy of the original invoice to Fram Farmers. Rebates to members, which are paid in full and on larger purchases regularly exceed the annual cost of Fram Farmers Membership, are in addition to any cost savings that members make on their farm input purchases.

Claydon Drills was started by Suffolk farmer Jeff Claydon in response to falling cereal prices and lower farming profits. In 2002 he developed the company’s patented Strip Seeding System, which enables farmers to establish crops far more cost effectively, with significant agronomic and environmental benefits. Now used all over the world, in all soil and crop conditions, it enables farmers to obtain above-average yields from their crops without needing to use unnecessary and expensive pre-cultivations.

Claydon Drills has expanded progressively during the last 12 years and now employs more than 50 people at its factory in Suffolk. Continually innovating, the company recently launched its new 6m and 8m Hybrid T trailed seed/fertiliser drills, which have been designed specifically to meet the requirements of 1000ha-plus farms and will undoubtedly be popular with Fram Farmers members.
