Introducing Kirkland

It's in our blood...

The Early Years

Our story begins in the mid 1800’s when great, great, great grandpa Nathaniel Worsley set up Worsley Carriage Builders in Yalding, Kent. Specialising in carriages for all types of transportation, the company enjoyed successful trading and began building carriages for farming, fruit growing and vineyards as well as general transportation.

The Next Generation

Scott's grandfather, David took the family business on another journey – this involved setting up a fruit growing farm in Ashley, Kent. A natural progression for the time; it started in 1953 and became a flourishing business, supplying fruit throughout the area.

A Group is Formed

Scott’s father Philip worked as an apprentice at Barratts from 1966 and worked mainly on commercial vehicles. He then went onto start his own car repair business ‘Autocare’ in 1975. In the early nineties Philip went onto dealing with machinery hire and used machinery followed by the start of Agricare in 1995 for his 5 sons to take forward.

The Brand Evolves

The Kirkland brand began in 2005 as a range of specialist machinery and went on to become a company in its own right in 2012. Kirkland UK has grown to be one of the country’s leading suppliers of specialist equipment for vineyard
and fruit orchard management, with all types of vineyard/orchard tractors and accessories available and an excellent reputation for servicing and support for their customers.

The Future

Scott and Jenny have 3 boys who although only young, have a keen interest in the business and will be looking to support the industry for many years to come with the fantastic team that Kirkland have built up over the years.
