Owned by the Grant family, who have been farming the land near Boston in Lincolnshire for over 100 years, Fold Hill was originally a mixed farm with sheep and cattle grazing alongside fields of vegetables and cereals. In the 1970s farmer Ted Grant OBE decided to diversify, and started to grow crops that could be harvested and made into dog biscuits.
Long before farm diversification became the norm it is today, Ted bought a small, second-hand oven and started producing dog food on the farm premises.
When Ted stepped back towards retirement in 2000, the running of the business passed to the next generation, his sons James and Andrew and the grandchildren. Today Fold Hill farm 3,000 acres, employ over 160 local people and specialise in growing baby vegetables, cereal and, of course, producing high quality and delicious dog food.
Of course, the story doesn’t end there. Fold Hill are constantly working to improve there products, making sure that your dogs are happy, healthy and full of life. And they are still very much a family-based business and proud to be based in rural Lincolnshire.
