A farming family

The Claydon family have farmed the heavy clay land of Suffolk since the early 1900s.  Jeffrey and Frank Claydon are the third generation to farm the land now under the E.T. Claydon and Sons family partnership name.  The brothers started out in 1970 and still farm the land today. The manufacturing side of the business began in 1981, when Claydon Yield-o-Meter was established to sell its yield monitoring system.

Claydon Drill machines are developed on a working farm by farmers for farmers. All of our affordable farm machinery is truly tried and tested in real farming conditions in a real farm environment before they are brought to market.

We don’t just listen to the end user – we are the end user.

The Claydon Hybrid is very versatile and has created a much improved, more open soil structure which is much better able to support the weight of following machinery. The land walks so much better now and has become almost self-healing.

In the first year the Claydon drill saved us 30,000 litres of fuel compared with our previous system. At 70 pence per litre that alone represented a saving of £21,000, but there were numerous other immediate benefits in terms of timeliness, time saving, better crops and much lower costs.

The Claydon System buys us time on our difficult ground and the main advantage for us is the speed and efficiency of the system. We can comfortably drill 32-40ha in a day. Given our steep banks, stones and some fiddly fields that’s a decent rate, and far more than we could achieve with the plough.
