10 years of Farm Toys Online
We're celebrating our tenth birthday this year. We've grown significantly over the past decade and now boast a full time team of five, with a lot of seasonal workers helping to pick and pack orders during peak selling periods (like Christmas).
Julia Lowe, mum of three and Farm Toys Online founder, who set up the business in 2008 said “What an incredible and rewarding feeling it is to see your business mature to 10 years. It feels like all the dedication, hard work and perseverance has paid of. Despite Amazon bringing about increased competition, we’ve continued to grow from strength to strength because we’ve stuck to what we know – farm toys! If it is on a farm, we have a toy version of it and our customers love that about us”.
We pride ourselves on happy employees, satisfied customers and a family feel. Julia adds “We also have excellent relationships with our suppliers. Not only do we work with some well-known international brands like Britains, Siku, Bruder, Rolly and Breyer. But we also work with some smaller British ones too like Brushwood Toys, which is run by a lovely Devon farmer and Tractor Ted, whose founder was at agricultural college with my husband”.
Looking to the future, Julia said: “We had our biggest Christmas ever last year and have lots of plans in the pipeline to make this one even better, including the release of our very own Farmer Freddie book”.
Here's to another 10 years and even greater success the Farm Toys Online team.
