A little bit of history…

The Robinsons are descended from many generations of dairy farmers in Northern Ireland.  As land was scarce and opportunities to buy their own farm was limited,  in 1978 David, Margaret and their young children moved to Mawley Town Farm, South Shropshire. As a result of hard work and forward thinking, the farm has developed into what it is today.  Using a wealth of husbandry knowledge and assisted by latest technology, the business is built on the core belief of ensuring the best animal welfare.  Equally important to the Robinson’s is supporting British manufacturing – the tractors are New Holland built in Essex, and JCB’s built in Staffordshire.  The Automatic Milking System is manufactured by Fullwood in Ellesmere, Shropshire.  

Continually seeking to improve and evolve the farm, now run by two generations of the Robinson family, at the forefront are the cattle, environment and sustainability. 

Two charities close to the family are Send a Cow and Little Hearts Matter and they particularly enjoy supporting local fundraising events when possible.
