Major machinery auction to take place this summer

Strutt and Parker (Farms) Ltd was incorporated in 1918 and has a strong reputation as being one of the leading farm businesses in the UK, farming c.20,000 acres.

In 2019 the business was purchased by Robigus Ltd, in what was believed to be the biggest transaction of a farming business since 2014.

With fresh vision and a change of farming policy, under the management of Belport Limited, the company has made the decision to dispose of much of the current machinery by auction and re-equip.

The current fleet includes top quality modern machinery from leading manufacturers such as John Deere, JCB, Claas, Massey Ferguson, New Holland and many others.

Clarke & Simpson of Framlingham, established agricultural machinery auctioneers, have been instructed to undertake the sale, which will take place over two days, on 2nd & 3rd June, at two sites in Suffolk and Essex.

James Durrant, who heads up machinery sales at Clarke and Simpson said we are delighted to be instructed in the auction of machinery on behalf of this prestigious company. The Strutt & Parker (Farms) name is synonymous with farming throughout East Anglia and the auction is set to be one of the biggest single active farmer dispersal auctions held.

Catalogues will be available to download from the website five weeks before the sale and there will be live on-line bidding via
