In the early stages of working with our flax we quickly found that we needed machinery which would break, scutch and hackle good amounts of flax straw relatively quickly. Simon is a great designer and maker of tooling and the Farm Factory Unit came into being to enable us to work the flax at shows/talks and workshops without having too many tools with us.

As well as the Farm Factory Unit - FFU for short; Simon has designed many of the wooden/metal tools which we use and sell at flaxland. We supply our tools throughout the UK as well as abroad.
