Paul Towns Agriculture and our team
Paul Towns Agriculture provides bespoke market advice for all varieties of cereal crops.
We understand that growing the correct variety can be the key to profitable farming and our business has been built on a philosophy of growing the right crops for local markets. By understanding these opportunities, we help our farmers to stay one step ahead of the competition by growing crops to meet local demand, reducing haulage costs and developing strong and trusted relationships.
We leave the spin and gloss to the big companies. We just want to give you good honest advice so you come back to us again and again.

Martin (The Boss) Hargreaves likes to keep us all in order, rolls grains, cleans oats and is the milling wheat guru.
Mitch works on the day shift, rolling grains and cleaning oats.
Monty is assigned all of the odd jobs on site, learning about the industry and business. In the office he helps us run the basic I.T and Social Media to keep you all updated about our company and happenings at Scalford Station.
It has to be said though, that he is the hardest working member of our team, without his brilliant expertise the whole company would fall apart, with every passing day he deserves a pay rise, the guy is basically God and he can write whatever he likes about himself on the website as no one else knows how to edit it.
