Bed-Down - 60 Years of British Innovation
We are celebrating 60 years of making premium quality animal bedding this year! That’s roughly 21,915 sleeps! So you could say we know a thing or two about equine bedding and now poultry bedding too.
Carriage driving, dressage, eventing, show jumping, racing, or simply riding for the pure pleasure of the bond between horse and owner. Like any of us, horses only perform consistently at the highest level in any discipline with good rest – which means clean, comfortable, and durable equine bedding with high absorption and other healthy properties.
1940 - 2020
It is with sadness that I announce the sudden passing of my father Robin Foster-Clarke on 11th November 2020, aged 79.
The business which evolved into Bed-Down LLP was started by my father in 1957 and he was an active partner in the business until the day he passed. He was a hard worker and was always full of ideas to improve existing products, and inventions to create new ones.
He said what he thought with pure honesty and he was happy to share his opinion. I have worked in the business for the last 30 years alongside my father and the Bed-Down team and I will miss him greatly.
Friends of Father have described him as a larger than life character who had the heart of a Lion and wore it on his sleeve, and he was one of Suffolk’s finest.
We will remember him fondly as a unique character who loved life, enjoyed laughter, and brought a smile to your face.
British Bedding at it's Best
Our bedding plays a vital part in minimising the risks of animals developing respiratory problems as well as enhancing performance, health and everyday welfare.
All our products include our unique, multiple dust extraction process, Easy Breathe™ and are produced at the family farm’s production facilities in Norfolk, which means we can deliver quality products and outstanding customer service.
For our specialist bedding we also combine it with Microcote™, a patented additive designed to reduce everyday dust particles. And there’s no doubt that cosy bedding makes for happy healthy hens laying lovely golden eggs too!
Bed-Down - we look after you too!
Our bales aren’t just double sealed for freshness and strength, they now come in different shapes and sizes – 20kg slim ‘Classic’ and 10kg “Handy” bale - for easier handling and loading.
