Farm Toys online celebrates 10 years

Published on: 24th April 2018

Somerset-based online toy retailer Farm Toys Online is celebrating its tenth birthday this year.

The business has grown significantly over the past decade and now boasts a full time team of five, with a number of seasonal workers helping to pick and pack orders during peak selling periods such as Christmas.

Julia Lowe, a mum of three who set up Farm Toys Online in 2008, commented: “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”.

Farm Toys Online prides itself on happy employees, satisfied customers and a family feel. Julia added: “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 for Julia and the Farm Toys Online team.
