Meet the Team
Our team are higly experienced and ready to assist with any requirements you may have. Whether it is supplies for fencing or gates, or feed for livestock, we are here to help! Our three directors are all family members and all grew up in the farming community, this ensures all customers get access to our vast experience and knowledge of the industry.
Harold grew up on a farm near Wychbold which was owned by his grandfather and run by his father and uncle. He moved with his father, mother and the rest of the family to Foxley Farm after the death of his grandfather. At the time he was working as a butcher and he continued in this until he took over running the farm. It was his decision to diversify the farm that started Richardson’s of Feckenham. Although semi-retired he still does some delivery work and keeps an overall view of the company.
He also runs a small herd of 20 suckler cows.
Sara is Harold’s sister and lived on the farm until she married. She runs the financial and accounts side of the business. She worked as a teacher in Wolverhampton for several years and ran the accounts and invoicing for the business from the beginning at weekends and in holidays.
As both Richardson’s and her husband’s business grew she retired from teaching to have more time to devote to the businesses.
Steve is Harold’s brother-in-law and when Harold was looking to diversify between them they formed the idea of a fencing business to supply farmers’ needs and set it up as partners.
Steve has had less practical involvement with Richardson’s as he ran a successful business designing, fabricating and erecting farm buildings. He therefore has a considerable knowledge of farming and farmers. He is now retired.
Richard joined us way back in 2002 when we had decided to expand and Harold needed more help in the yard. His help in expanding the range of items we sell and his knowledge of the requirements of the farming community has been instrumental in developing the business. He is a fully qualified Registered Animal Medicines Advisor.
Now Harold is semi-retired Richard runs the business on a day to day basis with the help of his team.
David joined us at the end of 2017 and his responsibility is keeping the yard in order and loading customers. He also unloads the lorries delivering to us and occasionally is sent out on a delivery. He is most often encountered trundling up and down the yard on the forklift.
Although she only joined us in April 2021 Jill has become a valued member of our team. She, like Richard, is a RAMA and has a wealth of agricultural experience both working on farms and selling agricultural supplies. She is now able to run the yard and sales giving Richard some valuable time off.
