JPF FARMS was established by James Forknall when he was 17 years old after he left school and spent a year working on his father Peter’s farm in Chart Sutton. James launched his business by purchasing a quad bike and slug pelletter, and then hired himself out to his father and neighbouring farmers.
After a few years of this small scale contracting, James began helping his father with the forage work at the farm and soon purchased a Claas 695 self-propelled forage harvester. This made a huge difference to the service that JPF FARMS could offer as a job that used to take a week could now be done in just two days.
JPF FARMS has established a loyal customer base over the years, with many of James original customers still relying on the vast range of services that can be offered by the reliable, tried and tested team based at Pleasant Farm, Chart Sutton, just outside the County town of Maidstone.
James prides himself in the quality and high level of service he offers and says “I have a regular and reliable team because I know they are good at what they do and will deliver the right level of service to my long standing customers. They know the farms and the farmers they are working with and they know what they are doing.”
From that original purchase of the self-propelled forager the logical progression was to move into Maize drilling, now a major part of the JPF FARMS operation.
As well as the grass and maize silaging operations, JPF FARMS can offer a comprehensive full farming service to all customers carried out using modern, well maintained machinery, with hi-tech GPS systems for greater accuracy and efficiency.
