David (Dave)

Rotary Club of Lincoln Colonia

James is a dairy farmers son from Saddleworth in Yorkshire near the Lancashire cotton town of Oldham & dads farm was in Grains Bar on the Lancashire/Yorkshire border then in September 1965 the family moved to Bardney, Lincolnshire.
Dad and his brother & sisters were all dairy farmers who produced, bottled & sold milk in every corner of Oldham & Shaw

Linda is a farmers daughter born & brought up in Lincolnshire, she has a background in accounting.
Her dad was an agricultural contractor before settling with his own farm in 1968

James & Linda met in ’72 married ’73 and together ran a retail dairy business delivering milk to homes & businesses in villages around Lincoln starting with just one round in 1973 and growing to a peak of 9 rounds by the mid 90’s using a fleet of electric milk floats all of which had electronic overdrive & gave them a top speed of about 25 mph. The business was one of the largest independent retail dairies in the county until it was sold to Lincoln Co-op in July 2003

From June 2000 we started running a Catering Equipment hire business but since 2002 we have grown the business to include Marquees, Toilets, Bouncy Castles & Fencing.

WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR BRITISH FARMING ?
When James & Linda grew up in the 50’s & 60’s between the 2 families we had 7 farms with 50  people employed producing milk & crops which helped to feed people, we now do not have a single family member engaged in full time agriculture.
Some of the land we farmed is rented out, some on the Lancashire/Yorkshore border is gradually returning to moorland

We now do things like, Marquee & Toilet Hire, Ready Mix Concrete, Skip & Plant Hire,
amongst other things in places as far away as Australia & New Zealand.

Some of our tractors which can be seen at vintage & village shows throughout the year

1950 Nuffield Universal Tractor. Originally TVO but was converted to Diesel in 1959
Been in the family since the 60’s with factory lighting kit & original paintwork.
Dad had 2 of these before we first moved to Lincolnshire.

A 1960 Whitlock Dinkum Digger, built around a Fordson Power Major skid unit.
We bought this machine in the late 90’s for snow clearing duties but have only used it for that purpose on 2 occasions
It has had a paint job at some time in the past but the intention is to keep it in it’s current condition, during the last 2 years it has had an engine rebuild.

Power Major at Newark 16

A 1960 Fordson Power Major.
We had one of these tractors when we had Dairy Farms in Lincolnshire & the Lancashire/Yorkshie border.
It was the first tractor we had with Live Drive so was very good when using Mowing Machines, Balers, & Muck Spreaders.
I will probably use it on Road Runs
