Crime reduction officer for the county, Paul Francis, said: "Farming equipment such as tractors and quad bikes can be a valuable commodity for thieves and thefts can be detrimental for farmers who use them as a key part of modern farming.
"An investigation is being carried out into this burglary but we would also like to encourage landowners to call us if they see any suspicious activity. An early 999 call giving detailed descriptions of people or vehicles can help us detect such crimes and recover any stolen items for the victim.
"We would much rather receive calls of suspicious circumstances that turn out to be legitimate than miss the opportunity to prevent a crime or arrest offenders."
Anyone with any information about the burglary is asked to contact Gloucestershire Police on 101, quoting incident number 71 of October 29.
You can also give information anonymously by contacting the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org and you may receive a reward if someone is arrested and charged.
