Farm Services Ltd
Farm Services Limited are specialist land drainage contractors, established over 75 years ago, who pride themselves in the service and expertise they offer to their customers in what is now the third generation of family ownership. Farm Services operates throughout the UK offering both open trench and trenchless drainage solutions with modern, specialist machinery. From design to installation they transform wet, unworkable land into an asset.
Since the birth of agriculture farmers have tried to control the amount of water reaching their crops. Excess water is often a restricting factor in yield and here in Northern Europe we get more than our fair share of rain. A network of drains, carefully designed and correctly installed, can remove excess water and the advantages of doing this are well known; land drainage is a tried and tested technology which is a major part of healthy productive soils.
