About Us

Yeoman Haylage is a family run business in rural Devon. We pride ourselves on the top quality Haylage we produce and also on the gold star level of customer service we offer.

John Bosley

John Bosley was born into a farming family in Oxfordshire where his father, a successful racehorse trainer, became ‘Leading Amateur Jockey’ in the 1950’s. It was during those years that John developed his own deep love of horses and a competitive spirit in the saddle.

At sixteen, John won his first Point-to-Point on a horse called ‘Rustic Work’ at a race-meeting of the Old Berkshire Hunt.

John graduated from the Berkshire College of Agriculture followed by Oxford Brookes University after which he spent 20 years as a college lecturer in equine land management and agriculture. He has been producing haylage since 1997 and launched Yeoman Haylage in 2015.

The Yeoman Partnership

John’s daughter, Liz and son-in-law, Nick moved to Devon in the Summer of 2016. They soon became heavily involved in Yeoman Haylage and in 2019 they formed a partnership with John.

Liz was born riding ponies and loved following her Dad over hedges out hunting. She was part of the Old Berks Hunt pony club and spent many weekends competing in tetrathlons, hunter trials and family team chases.
