Ruffords Country Store is part of Clarke and Pulman, an independent family company est. in 2003. Ged Clarke, the company Chairman, began his young career in the British Army before joining an agricultural tractor and machinery business, as an apprentice sales person. Progressing his way up the ladder resulted in Massey Ferguson recognising Ged’s potential and keen enthusiasm. This resulted in Ged being offered the Massey Ferguson Franchise for the region. Ged readily accepted the challenge in 2003, establishing Clarke and Pulman, further franchises followed; Fendt, JCB, Kverneland and Valtra. Ged’s vision and dedication to the business brought about further inspiration; he had the desire to venture into the Country Clothing sector, complementing his now successful agricultural dealership.
Rufford’s was born and opened in November of 2018 and has been fantastically received, going from strength to strength in just a few short months. The desire and aim are to provide a friendly, first class service together with an enjoyable shopping experience for the community for years to come.
