Garlands Shooting Ground was founded in 1980 by father and son Robert and Ian Garland who were then joined by James Garland in 1984. The business then consisted of a small shop and a basic shooting ground. Over the years it has become a Premier UK shooting ground, hosting the British Sporting Championships in 2014, 2015 and 2020
Over the years the business has expanded and now has over 9 staff employed within the Company.
Now the Shooting Ground has a wide variety of disciplines, the shop has been greatly expanded and a bar and restaurant were added in 1991
Garlands also has an extensive Wholesale Department which was started in 1994, that supplies products to over 600 retailers within the UK, The Republic of Ireland and Europe.
In February 2008 Ian and James Garland purchased Gamekeepa Feeds and Supplies which supplies all types of game rearing and release equipment.
In March 2010 Mr Ian Garland resigned from the company, selling his shares back to the company and now concentrates his time on his Falconry business.
