History and Our Team
The Cradock family have been mixed farming in the village of Hilperton since 1933
The Cradock family have been mixed farming in the village of Hilperton since 1933, Robert Cradock and his brother, took on Manor Farm from their father Albert Edward (Ted) During the 1970’s. In 1985 after selling off the farm and its land, Robert and Son Ian bought 40 acres back. Today the farm has grown and the 300 acres of New Barn Farm is run by Ian and his 2 sons Benjy and Ashley.
The workshops are very much the active part of the farm, maintaining the farm machinery and supporting other local agricultural businesses with their requirements.
IR Cradock and Sons also specialise in the maintenance, repair and preparation of 4×4 and overland vehicles. Supplying and fitting a range of high-quality parts and accessories, and benefitting from a long standing engineering background. Overland travel itself is a huge passion for the whole family, and workshop manager Benjy feels this is an important attribute to the advice and work he offers customers, “If we’re not doing it, how can we sell it!”.
We are proud of our history and our team, IR Cradock and Sons are a small family business, who strive to offer a personal and reliable service that people can count on and trust us.
