Equestrian, Agricultural & Amenity Contractors

Paddock Maintenance Specialists


About Us

The Background – Shire Country Services LLP est. 2011

Throughout our beautiful home counties of North Yorkshire and County Durham there are an ever growing number of properties with the benefit of land, equestrian establishments and more traditional smaller agricultural enterprises with an on-going requirement to make the most of their assets.

As an inevitable result of the push for lower costs of production in farming and increased efficiency in agricultural contracting, the size of machinery used and seasonal pressures placed on these businesses has increased substantially over recent years. Unfortunately size of traditional pasture fields hasn’t!

As such, those who relied on the good nature of a neighbouring farmer with a small tractor, or being able to draft in a nearby contractor have found it harder than ever to keep their property in optimum condition in an affordable, timely and sympathetic manner. Shire Country Services aims to do just this and more.

We use modern, compact and powerful machinery which when running on turf tyres leaves minimal ruts or tread marks in even the wettest of conditions. The tractors are transported to each location on trailers towed by 4×4 pickups.

Small paddocks or fields, overhanging trees and narrow gateways are easily accommodated and through using modern machinery and skilled operators this doesn’t have to be at the expense of output either.

Years of experience in the professional equine industry, coupled with good farming pedigrees enables us to understand the requirements of our customers, offer sound and sensible advice and carry out tasks in a professional manner.
