Straw contracting & haulage

Straw contracting

We offer a local service to purchase and bale straw at harvest time. Our straw contractor service is grower orientated – as growers ourselves we know how important it is that straw sold to a straw contractor is gathered, baled, stacked and removed as quickly as possible so you can get on with cultivations. We also recognise the value of receiving prompt settlement for produce sold. That’s why we aim to submit purchase advice as soon as possible after harvest, and arrange full payment within 30 days of invoice receipt. We are also able to bale straw intended for your own use. Please contact us to discuss buying or selling straw.

Straw haulage

Eastons provide a variety of transport services that offer cost effective solutions without compromise to service. Our straw wagons move big bale straw from farms into renewable energy plants and remote storage sites. We also move own account straw baled, stored and sold by F.H. Easton Ltd.

We operate a mixed fleet of power station spec. flatbed drawbar combinations. Our trucks are capable of loading 36 4’x4′ or 48 3’x4′ large hesston bales. All trucks are plated to 44t permitting the carriage of 8-string high density and Grade B bales.

We are proud of our skilled and dedicated drivers. Their work ensures that our suppliers’ and customers’ needs are fulfilled, whatever the weather, time or day.

Please contact us to discuss collecting or delivering baled straw.
