Marriage’s feeds: high standards and personal service
W & H Marriage & Sons is a family-owned company that started in 1824 from farming roots. Six generations later, we mill a wide range of flour, animal feed and pet food in three mills and on two sites. Our business has always been based around a reputation for quality and service. Customers come to Marriage’s to find a competitive edge; this can mean bespoke formulation, eye-catching packaging or service that goes above and beyond.
Over the last 45 years, we have developed a wealth of experience in meeting the needs of specialist poultry farms. Added to this are feeding solutions for family farms with seasonal poultry, game birds, pigs, sheep and cattle. With further capability to manufacture a wide range of equine, small animal and wild bird foods, we enjoy trading with a huge range of customers.
Chelmer Mills is certified for organic and non-GM feed milling. We offer medicated and heat-treated feeds and a wide variety of forms to suit all stages. Deliveries can be made in bags or bulk but not tote bags. We are audited and accredited by AIC’s UFAS and FEMAS schemes, Organic Food Federation, BETA NOPS, Conservation Grade and various others, including supermarkets.
Marriage’s feeds will be fit for purpose and customers can work closely with our technologist. We start with quality raw materials: local wheat, beans and peas, English fishmeal and hipro soya. We are surrounded by some of the country’s best arable land and our intake requirements are stricter than most mills. Product security is the absolute priority throughout the process, from intake, through production and into logistics.
As a family-run company with a team of experienced and friendly staff, we try to create a successful long-term trading relationship with every customer account we open. As the company approaches 200 years of milling, we strive to continue delivering a high level of products and customer service.
