Valtra Ambassadors become part of AGCO's Farmer First Strategy

Added 27/11/2023

Windy Ridge Veg Ltd have become Valtra Ambassadors, and have recently taken delivery of their 10th new Valtra tractor supplied by our Horncastle depot.

As part of AGCO’s Farmer-First strategy a presentation was made to more than 50 senior AGCO UK personal and also to a worldwide AGCO audience via Zoom, to highlight the ever changing and different requirements of their Valtra products.

Trading as Windy Ridge Vegetables Ltd, based near Boston, the Nundy family farms approximately 360ha of mainly Grade 1 silt land. Crops include cabbage, cauliflower, savoy cabbage and pumpkins as well as specialist vegetables. Planting and harvesting continue throughout most of the year to maintain supplies of fresh produce.

First experience of Valtra

“Our 20-tractor mixed brand fleet includes models of various sizes, power and weights, but before 2022 we had never owned a Valtra,” explained Managing Director Mark Nundy who manages the farm with his father Mick.

When Chandlers Valtra Specialist, Rob Immink visited the farm to discuss a new fertiliser spreader, he suggested to Mark and Mick that they should try a Valtra. A demonstration N-series tractor with a front loader was driven by several operators and it quickly proved popular – so much so that it never returned to the dealer.

Lincolnshire based salad and vegetable producer, Windy Ridge Vegetables Ltd has invested in ten Valtra tractors since 2022, following a successful on-farm demonstration. Models from the A-, N-, G- and T-series have been selected – all for specific tasks. 

Reliability so far has been excellent and support from the Chandlers team as well as Valtra UK has been exceptional, stressed Mark.
