M&J Haulage was founded in 1998 by Mark Popplewell.
Mark worked on his father's farm from an early age and returned
to the family farm after completing the Higher National Certificate in
Modern Agriculture at Riseholme College. In 1997 the family decided
that, as there were few prospects locally for expansion and with the low
returns from farming at that time, the farm should be sold.
Mark used his share to start M&J Haulage, with sugar beet haulage
being the main source of income. The business also offered arable
contracting services, including combining, using the machinery retained
from the original farming business.
In 2000 a used tanker harvester was purchased and the business expanded into Beet lifting. By 2003 the business had expanded into drilling sugar beet and moved quickly into offering a full beet growing, lifting and haulage service.
We have now for many years farmed land on short and long term leases on various agreements, growing combinable crops.
