About TFM Country StoreOur Roots
A W Nevile Ltd, trading as Thorpe Farm Repairs, was established in Thorpe on the Hill to service Mr A W Nevile’s and neighbouring farms. On or around 1976 it was relocated to its currently location in Whisby.
In 1995, Frank Harris was employed to manage Thorpe Farm Repairs and the business evolved. Over the years, many of the smaller farms have stopped trading and the larger farms didn’t use Thorpe Farm. Other products were then introduced to the store including horse and dog food, and the hire side was established when the first hire manure spreader was purchased. Eventually, the name was changed to TFM Countrystore as the business was doing less and less in the farming world and hadn’t been located in Thorpe for some decades. In 2012, Mr A W Nevile (with his wife’s blessing) left Frank the business in his Will as he felt if Frank hadn’t evolved the business then it would have closed on his passing.
Our HistoryA Family Run Business
In 2013 Frank asked his children to join him in the business as he was passed retirement age and didn’t want to sell TFM so James joined to help on the more physical side of TFM including supporting the hire equipment. Nikki joined in 2014. Since then the company has evolved even further to where it is today and it will continue to change for the coming years.
Nikki’s kids Louise and Alex can also be seen working in the holidays with Louise at Sheffield Hallam Uni studying in Sociology and Alex studying Business and Accounting at Nottingham Trent.
What ourCustomers Say
Been buying our raw food from here for a couple of months now. They are so incredibly helpful, even letting me order the food and putting it behind the counter so my partner can pick it up during his lunch break! The customer service is amazing, the dogs love the food and they sell a great range of natural dog chews too! One of the best places to go now for dog food and treats!
I used TFM on the off chance for hiring some plant, I've now made them my dedicated hire centre great customer service, always goes above and beyond nothing is ever any trouble and very very reliable and friendly couldn’t not recommend these guys and the hire prices are very good as well.
