About BP Milling
Upper Littlecote Farm has been the base of the family business for six generations as a dairy and arable enterprise. After Ben had graduated from Sparsholt College he enlarged several of the farm ponds to create a fish rearing facility; feeding the fish on cereals harvested on the farm.
With the good fish growth rates he was achieving it soon became apparent that he did not need to buy expensive high protein fish feeds to attain a decent return on his investment.
After 18 months of experimenting with different cereals and feed mixes, with the help of nutritionist Keith Thomas and fishery consultant Andrew Ellis, Ben invested in a pellet milling plant to produce his own cereal based feeds for fish.
They have developed several formulations of alternative fish feed diets which are now produced to order on the farm.
