Suffolk business looks for new home for its unique pink grain drier

A unique pink drier was the highlight of this year’s open day hosted by Suffolk-based Master Farm Services.

A unique pink drier was the highlight of this year's open day hosted by Suffolk-based Master Farm Services.

On 6th and 7th March, visitors had a chance to view the pink machine, as well as learn about the company’s range of new mobile grain driers in various capacities, refurbished second-hand driers, and other grain handling products.

There was also an incentive offer of £1,000 off all driers purchased on the day.

George Young, operations director at Master Farm Services, said: “It’s been a while since our last open day, which took place pre-Covid.

“We’ve got a fair bit of second-hand stock and some new machines to show off, so we decided to host another open day. It’s a good excuse to have a good tidy up.”

Pink drier in aid of cancer charity

Master Farm Services managing director Garry Ingram added that the open day was a perfect opportunity to showcase the dealership’s unique pink mobile drier. Proceeds from selling this equipment as well as from other sales during the open day go towards the Breast Cancer UK charity.

Mr Ingram said: “We’re hopeful to raise a nice sum for the charity, especially with our pink drier.

“All of our driers are made in Italy. We’ve been importing them since 1981. A colleague of mine just jokingly said one day that maybe we should do something like a pink drier.

“And the more I thought about it, I realised that perhaps we could integrate a pink drier with a bit of charity work. We went to the Italian manufacturer and asked how they felt about making a one-off pink mobile grain drier.”

Unique piece

“They were a little bit sceptical to start with, until we explained the reason behind wanting to do it pink for the Breast Cancer UK charity. Then they jumped on board straight away.

“However, it’s a one-off, unique piece. You won’t find any more of those. It would be amazing to find it a new home.”

Mr Ingram added that Master Farm Services aims to support a chosen charity every year.

Apart from viewing the equipment, the visitors of the open days had a chance to try themselves in some fun activities such as archery and axe throwing. Refreshments were also provided.

Master Farm Services located in Bures, Suffolk, works nationwide, usually directly with the customer though it has a small number of long-standing dealers in the South West, the West Midlands and Scotland.
