Quality and a Sustainable Product is Our Priority.
Graeme and Henrietta Purvis have been growing and manufacturing lucerne chaff for more than a decade.
Graeme and Henrietta have continued to invest in the quality - of not only the lucerne plant, but also the growing, harvesting and processing. The result has ensured that Purvis Feeds produces the highest quality lucerne and chopped forage for horse owners - turning what was once 'just a bit of roughage in your bucket', into a high quality nutrition source and a vital calorie and nutrient rich component of equine nutrition.
Not all chaff is created equally.
Unique processing to retain colour, leaf and quality.
In 2014 Purvis Feeds imported innovative hay drying technology from Italy. The dryer holds 24 round bales, drying them evenly to a desired moisture content.
While this equipment was expensive and labour intensive, it also meant the lucerne did not degrade on the paddock, losing colour, smell and more importantly nutrient value. It also meant more leaf was retained prior to chaffing and the moisture content could be controlled for optimum nutrient retention.
Purvis Feeds is changing to meet the needs of our customers.
Purvis Feeds has recently undergone some changes, a new website, new branding and a new facebook page. Connecting with our customers is an exciting part of our business going forward.
