The origins of Grazers was a serendipitous discovery in 1999 by James Over and Nina Tidswell while treating a Yorkshire farmer’s crop with trace elements. The treated crop was on the edge of a wood which normally had extensive rabbit damage. After application, the farmer realised the crop damage was recovering rapidly, even though the rabbits were still present. After more research, with several agricultural and horticultural trials later, Grazers took off and customers endorsed the findings.
Jonathan Tebb Roger is from a horticultural and agricultural background and worked with Jim and Nina on the Grazers trials since the outset. When Jim and Nina’s decided to retire in 2006, Jonathan and his wife Sally bought the company, then continued to manufacture and supply Grazers, expanding the business year on year and now providing 4 product variations, against a wider range of crop herbivores.
