The French Connection

First overseas delivery for Yeoman Haylage!

After almost three months of working tirelessly to get the correct paperwork together we have successfully exported our first order of haylage post Brexit to France. It would be fair to say it has been a tricky process from new export rules, finding customs agents, no one being sure what to class haylage as and what certification it needed but teamwork and good communication makes things happen. We worked closely with APHA, our very patient French customer and a fantastic haulier Kevin Bound.

Said Kevin Bound the haulier: “We got there in the end! Our successful export has been forwarded to Defra and we are looking forward to assisting them with future export of forage”.

Said Liz “What a huge relief!! I lost count of the number of hours, tears and tantrums that have gone into this over the past 3 months. Thank you to everyone who had to put up with my endless moans, rants and grumpiness”!

“Apparently the French Government having been duffed up over the telephone a few times by my lovely but formidable daughter Elizabeth, feared she would be travelling in the lorry to make sure of fair play. This was a very effective ploy as all went very well. Well done EB fantastic”.

Rosemary Ballard

“I feel Elizabeth is a ‘chip off the old block’

Daughter like Father not taking ‘No for an answer’!

David says the driver of the lorry is very clever and a very skilled driver”.

Jayne Adele Moody

“Well done! I understand the process of exporting now feels like swimming through treacle”.

“Really well done, and thanks to your hard work lucky horses are going to have the best haylage”.

Fiona Waterer

“Well done Liz we are about to import some machinery from France. Any tips / contact / info we would be so grateful to hear from you if you had a spare minute in your very busy day . Hope you are all well”.

“I have been using Yeoman Haylage for several years now for my show-jumpers, including the winner of the Hickstead Derby and they always thrive and look well on Yeoman haylage. Importantly the small haylage bales are easy to transport so the horses don’t have any change in their feed when away at shows.”
