The team hope to promote agriculture to the next generation of farmers and make them aware of how Woldmarsh operates and helps farms all over the county.  Last year’s show was a huge success and we hope this year’s show will be even better.

Farm Walk a Huge Success

The first Woldmarsh Farm Walk was a huge success. With 80 people attending the walk, we are very pleased that all the members who attended the event on the 20th May at Scrivelsby Farms had a super evening and want to thank all at Scrivelsby Farms for their help and for allowing us to hold the event on their farm. The feedback during and after the event has been fantastic and we are already looking to plan the next one.

Woldlink to launch at Cereals 2014

Supply and service provider Woldlink will be attending Cereals 2014 to demonstrate how you can save on your overheads with their extensive list of offered product lines and services through significantly discounted prices as a result of their purchasing power.

Woldlink’s launch marks the efforts of parent company Woldmarsh Producers to provide a level of assistance and customer-driven solutions not normally seen outside of co-operatives – all without requiring membership or conforming to extra rules and requirements. The service will deliver savings in both running costs, through better purchasing power, and administrative costs, through process improvement, therefore reducing your overheads.

Cereals 2014, the UK’s premiere arable industry technical event provides the launchpad for Woldlink with over 64 hectares of stands and live demonstrations. Woldlink will be demonstrating the value in their agricultural products and service offerings.

With a huge range of products and services on offer, Woldlink provides a one-stop shop for clients through their expertise and purchasing power; Woldlink prides itself on the ability to find a competitive solution to client’s specific requirements.

Chief Executive Stuart McKenzie comments ‘this is a really exciting development for the group. We have been proving these services for over 50 years, but it is only just now that we can offer a solution to members who do not wish to fully commit or conform to the rules of a cooperative society and yet wish to benefit from collective purchasing power. Woldlink is our answer to this issue, allowing participation from a wide range of business types.”

Woldlink supplies the following key products/services at significantly discounted rates:

  • Fuel – Gas, Oil, Diesel, Kerosene and Adblue
