Mole Valley Farmers was established in 1960 by a small group of farmers in South Molton, North Devon who created an agricultural buying group.
The success of this early enterprise has resulted in the Mole Valley Farmers family of companies becoming a leading agricultural supply business spanning the length of Britain.
Today we have over 9,000 Farmer Shareholders and more than 53,000 Country Members. We employ over 2,000 people and have a turnover of £495 million.
Mole Valley Farmers trades with co-operative principles and has strong values in respect of the farming community. Our ethos has always been to help our farming members improve productivity and profitability by offering a whole range of products and services at competitive prices.
Over the years the company has grown and today we operate 56 nationwide rural retail locations, comprising Mole Valley Farmers; Mole Country Stores and Farmdirect along with our direct to farm business providing feed, fertiliser and other inputs to the nation’s farmers.
We provide additional services through Mole Valley Engineering, Mole Energy, Molecare Veterinary Services and Mole Insurance Services.
Originated by, and for the benefit of farmers, our founding values have remained true to our beliefs of over 60 years; to put our customer’s first, be courageous, show commitment, deliver knowledge, offer solutions and to be honest in everything we do.
Our values guide us in how we work as a business and shape the way we develop relationships with customers, suppliers, stakeholders and of course, employees.
Gender Pay Report
Organisations in the UK with more than 250 employees are to report their gender pay gap, due to the Government released legislation in 2017. At Mole Valley Farmers, we believe this is a positive step towards addressing any potential gender bias in our industry and workforce.
