The Reiff farm business is now managed by Jeff Reiff, who is the third generation of the family. But it all started in 1953 with the marriage of his grandparents Robert Reiff and Françoise Thinnes who then worked together on their small farm in the village of Binsfeld. In those days, the farm included forestry work and arable farming as well as dairy cattle, breeding pigs and chickens.
The first combine harvester arrived in 1958 and the farm has carried out contract work ever since. Sons Josy and Johny joined their parents’ farm in about 1970. Josy, the older of the two, was chiefly responsible for the arable work and machines while Johny mainly took charge of the livestock.
Since then, the farm has grown steadily and more and more machines have been used for contract work. One of the first pairings was a Ford 5000 with a 5 tonne Bastian manure spreader.
Josy’s son Jeff finished school in 2004 and joined the business in 2006.
