The Ridge Family own and operate a 670ha arable and lamb finishing farm at Highbank near Methven. The farm is separated into three blocks, two of which are irrigated. They grow various crops including; grass seed, clover, cocksfoot, milling and feed wheat, malting and feed barley, linseed, potatoes, peas and brassicas to name a few. Services we provide for them are straw baling and sale of ryegrass, barley and wheat straw.
The Ridge Family have been loyal clients of ours for the past 21 years, since Andrew Jackson Contracting began. They have described our service as excellent and appreciate the prompt baling and removal of straw. They believe our machinery is spotless but the wrong colour (not Massey Ferguson red!). JF Ridge & Sons also played host to the world ploughing championships in 2010.
