"Excellent working relationship for over two decades. Very professional outfit and a great family to get along with. Never the cheapest, but you get what you pay for; well maintained and reliable kit, experienced operators and a job well done! Jobs carried out for us over the years include combining, foraging, direct drilling, irrigation and muck spreading – all of which have been carried out to a high standard. "
Dave Thornton Upton Farm
"With ever greater scrutiny and financial pressures on farming I really appreciate the approach taken by RC Baker Ltd in dealing with our contracting requirements. I know that I can leave them to get on with the job in hand and that it will be done in a professional and timely manner without constant oversight from me. I also appreciate their innovative approach to trialling new techniques that can help improve our profitability. I have no doubt that our working relationship will continue to prosper. "

"RC Baker Ltd have always been efficient and helpful. They have supplied Park Farm with good quality compost which they deliver and spread. They have also direct drilled oil seed rape and deal with all the farm's plastic waste recycling. "
Pieter Steenkamp Tusmore Park Farms
"We only have 21 acres of grassland but we cannot graze about 11 acres during the winter if it turns wet because this area is ironstone with patches of clay. When Chris Baker suggested that we could try their Sumo Grassland subsoiler, we were rather sceptical but decided to give it a try. In the middle of winter, when the rest of the paddocks were waterlogged, the subsoiled paddock was just spongy with no wet areas at all. This summer the grass growth has improved and been more consistent. We were very surprised how effective it was and have booked Chris and the team to do a lot more acres this autumn."
Paul Stead Sapphire Alpacas
"RC Baker provide a co-operative and up to date service, often going beyond the contract needs to ensure that the operation is done well. Modern equipment and techniques are always on offer and staff are well trained."
Alexander Maddan Agrivert Limited
"R C Baker have been operating as Agri.Cycle Cotswold, a franchise of Agri.Cycle for over five years, transferring farm plastic waste from their customers in a professional and reliable manner. We are extremely pleased to be associated with them as they offer a first rate service and would highly recommend them to anyone."
Robert Moore Agri.Cycle Ltd
"As a farm business consultant I am involved in farm managment and the operation of contract farming arrangements. I have been working with Charlie and his team since 1998 in North Oxfordshire where he carries out all the field operations on 900 acres of arable. In around 2002 this became a contract farming agreement and it continues to operate successfully, mainly down to the professional approach of RC Baker Ltd."
James More More Rural Consultancy Ltd
"RC Baker are a very helpful team of people who get the work done on time so that we can spend more time with our livestock. "
Fred and Mark Lovell Lovell & Son
"I have worked with R C Baker Ltd since the 1970’s and hope to do so for many years yet. Although the business has obviously grown a lot in recent years the same level of courtesy, prompt and professional service has been maintained. The long term future of the company looks to be in good hands with Chris and Stephen Baker."
Brian Bowden W.L. Bowden & Son
"R C Baker Limited’s professional experience and clear understanding of our individual needs has allowed us to have complete confidence in them for the last 20 years. As a family run business they provide a friendly and trustworthy service that has seen great returns in both our arable and dairy aspects of the farm. I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
Ray Gasson E Gasson & Sons
"I was sceptical about the Drain Jetter but after a day’s work with RC Baker Ltd the outlets haven’t stopped running water for the last 12 months. Fitting the tracker to the nozzle and being able to assist us in mapping the older plastic and clay drain routes whilst simultaneously flushing the pipes through was a great advantage. The varying heads that assists in cutting through tree roots was impressive which in turn has saved us time and money. I will definitely be asking them back to clean more drains around the farm."
Nigel Fawdry Village Farm, Salford
