Surface weighbridge on farm

Weightron’s sister company Parkerfarm is delighted to have sold a weighbridge to the nation’s favourite farmer Adam Henson and his farm.

Adam Henson is famous for co-presenting the BBC’s TV show Countryfile, which airs at a primetime slot on Sunday evenings. The show regularly reaches over 6 million viewers each week.

Nonetheless besides being a presenter Adam is predominantly a farmer, and runs Bemborough Farm in the Cotswolds with his business partner Duncan Andrews. Recently they have decided to expand their farm and build a new farmyard development with a grain store. Duncan told us that as the farm is growing and the workload increasing “having a weighbridge has become necessary”.

They have opted to purchase a surface mounted 18m x 3.2m Eurodeck Weighbridge, which is going to be installed in the new grain store. The weighbridge is principally going to be used to weigh and measure the produce coming in to the farm and out again, such as grain and straw. They added that the Parkerfarm weighbridge was going to massively improve the farming process, making it more efficient.

“It will give us control as well as piece of mind. We can provide our clients with a ticket showing the weight readings from the weighbridge to assure them that we are being professional.”

This is going to be their first weighbridge, therefore choosing the right supplier as well as the right model to suit their needs was vital. According to them, Parkerfarm have the best reputation in the farming world.

“We chose Parkerfarm as our supplier mainly because of their past track record in the industry. Parkerfarm are established and provide a great support and back up service. They are also reasonably priced considering the quality of their weighbridges.”
