Molecare Veterinary Services Ltd was a joint Devon Farm Vets venture between Mole Valley Farmers and St David’s Farm Practice Ltd. The company became operational on 1st August 2014 and brought together the Farm, Equine and Small Animal Practice of Mole Valley Farmers with the Farm Practice of St David’s. In November 2020 Mole Valley Farmers bought out St David’s and Molecare Veterinary Services is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Mole Valley Farmers.
The scale of Mole Valley Farmers allows us to seek out new products, innovative treatments and management protocols to offer our clients a diverse range of solutions to meet their farm objectives.

Molecare Farm Vets was established to combine veterinary expertise and experience with the ruminant nutrition and agronomy technical knowledge of Mole Valley Farmers. We are an innovative veterinary practice with the benefit of working in conjunction with agronomists and ruminant nutritionists, enabling a holistic and unique approach to veterinary medicine.
We currently offer high quality first opinion work across the business, delivering on all the needs of farmers in Devon. We have medicine pick up points at the four Mole Valley Farmers Devon stores, South Molton, Cullompton, Newton Abbot and Holsworthy and deliver medicines on a weekly basis. The vets are available 24/7 and all farms have a named vet who is responsible for the health and welfare of the livestock. Additionally, we have a technician service who delivers on farm scoring and TB testing.
Our aim at all times is to provide the highest quality animal care combined with excellent customer service.
Our vets, vet technicians and data recorders adhere to Section 9 of the Animal Welfare Act 2006: Duty of person responsible for animal to ensure welfare.
Our team take the necessary steps as are reasonable in all circumstances to ensure that the needs of an animal for which they are responsible are met to the extent required by good practice. This includes an animals need to be protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease.
