The Claydon family have farmed the heavy clay land of Suffolk since the early 1900s. Jeffrey and Frank Claydon are the third generation to farm the land now under the E.T. Claydon and Sons family partnership name. The brothers started out in 1970 and still farm the land today.The manufacturing side of the business began in 1981, when Claydon Yield-o-Meter was established to sell its yield monitoring system.
Claydon Drill machines are developed on a working farm by farmers for farmers. All Claydon farm machinery is truly tried and tested in real farming conditions in a real farm environment before they are brought to market.

The Claydon Farm has not been ploughed since 2002 and Frank Claydon establishes around 400 hectares in an autumn drilling season with a single 6m Claydon Drill and a single tractor. He goes on to drill another 1,250 hectares on contract.

Since 2003, Claydon have become the European market leader in direct strip till. The company’s drills, straw harrow and inter-row hoes are now operating in over 30 countries across the world, supported by a network of distributors and dealers, and manufactured from the Claydon base in Suffolk.

Claydon Drill machines are available from Chandlers Cirencester, Devizes, Bristol, Ross-On-Wye, Martley, Raglan and Bridgnorth depots.
