Jennie Steenkamp (née Baker), a farmer’s daughter from Oxfordshire, and now founder of Pocket Farming has always been surrounded by farm machinery, having grown up on a farm and alongside the family agricultural contracting business RC Baker Ltd. From very early on in life Jennie found herself being taken to school, amongst other places, in agricultural machinery. A tractor, or horse and cart, outside the school gates was quite normal for Jennie, not seen so much as 'normal' by her school friends!
During summer holidays from college and university Jennie would often help out with the family contracting business, seen driving the JCB Fastrac for corn cart, hauling silage or trimming grass with the Bomford topper.
Farming technology and the machinery available has continued to grow at a phenomenal rate and the family contracting business, RC Baker Ltd, was often at the forefront of testing new available equipment. With such a fast paced industry it was great to see the collection of model versions grow too so that none would be forgotten.
Pocket Farming was established in May 2014 by Jennie Steenkamp, with the aim to provide a one stop shop for collectors, enthusiasts and farming fanatics to purchase model verions of the amazing machinery in the agricultural industry. From early models such as 'The Little Grey Fergie' to the most up to date tractor technology and implements, Pocket Farming enables you to keep up with the full scale farming world through your own small scale farm collection.
