Grazers Ltd is a family business based in Cumbria. Grazers was developed in 1999 by James Over and Nina Tidswell while treating a farmers crop with trace elements . The affected crop happened to be on the edge of a wood which normally received extensive damage from rabbits.  After treatment, the farmer realised the crop damage was recovering rapidly although the rabbits were still there…After some research and lots of trials in agriculture and horticulture, Grazers never looked back! We believe in our product and have seen the results. Grazers is totally safe for people, pets, plants & planet. Effective against more unusual pest damage from around the world!
