Gablestock is dedicated to the production of feeds that meet the highest standards and is a respected authority in animal nutrition.
With more than 25 years experience, we have a wealth of expertise in the manufacture of quality mixes for livestock, birds, equines and pets. The feeds are nutritious, palatable and digestible, and are formulated for optimum health and performance. Customers can be confident that they deliver consistent nutrition to their animals.
All the cereals, peas and beans used in our mixes are grown on the family farm, and either processed on site or micronized locally. All other ingredients are from approved sources.
Our state-of-the-art licensed feed mill operates to strictly-controlled production conditions. We are accredited to the Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS), Red Tractor Farm Assurance and the British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA).
We are conveniently located just off the A1 on the outskirts of Long Bennington close to the Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire border with plenty of parking for those who wish to visit our Retail Outlet or collect orders.
Gablestock was first established in 1991 at Witham Mill, Long Bennington by the Fearn family, who have been farming the same land in and around Long Bennington for more than 50 years.
The original water mill had been in operation for over 200 years, until the mill was modernized in the 1960’s, the water mill removed, and power was replaced with electric motors.
The mill saw new management in the 1970s and started trading as AgriService, specialising in compound animal feeds and seed cleaning for farmers. In the early 1980s another building was erected on site to house a new molassed coarse mixture plant, the main core of the business being coarse mixes for ruminants and horses. Further alterations enabled the manufacture of small animal feeds and dog foods.
In 1991 after farming cereals, and living in the surrounding village for 40 years, the Fearn family acquired AgriService and re-named it Gablestock. After several years working at the site, with the business growing, it was decided a new location was needed – a greenfield site close to the village was ideal. Plans were put into place, and in 2002 the new mill was completed.
A state of the art mixing plant was installed, improving the production time and more importantly the quality of the products being produced.
