Company History

Harpers Home Mix Ltd was established in 1992 by the founder, Bill Harper, at Stibb Cross in North Devon. Initially the Company produced coarse mixes and blends. After gaining a good section of that market the Company moved into cubing coarse grist ingredients. Mixing the nuts with other ingredients to form the original Harpers Nutty Mix, this was used very successfully in parlour feeding systems.

In 1997 a new purpose built factory was opened at Holsworthy Industrial Estate in the centre of the North and West Devon milk field, with one of the highest concentrations of dairy cows in the country. The mill is also well situated to serve the three South West moorland regions, all being within one hour travelling time. We deliver throughout Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset, as well as supplying a network of Merchants.

The mill now runs four press lines with a dedicated line for the manufacture of medicated feeds. This has led to the development of a strong game feed market, based on the very successful pheasant and partridge shoots that enjoy the topography of the South West.

This independent manufacturer became part of the Masseys Feed Group in February 2012.

In 2017, Harpers Feeds opened their first retail outlet, Harpers Farm Supplies, on Holsworthy Industrial Estate.
