The name Abbott has been prominent in the hay trade for over 130 years. At one time the head office of the company was in the City of London. This was understandable as the dairy cows at that time were also kept in towns. Later Abbotts sent coal to Ireland and brought back hay from there for the pit ponies. The Company was one of the founder members of the British Hay and Straw Merchants Association.
