Farming has evolved from a subsistence occupation to one that is a major business endeavour. As the nature of farming changed from feeding the family and livestock on the farm to feeding large populations around the world, farmers found they were dependent on a network of service providers to support their work.
Tractor and implement dealerships grew right along with the agricultural success story. They became an essential part of the farm culture - from their roots of selling tools from the backs of wagons that roamed throughout the countryside, to offering implements through the local blacksmith or hardware store, to transforming into dealerships that offered farmers tractors, implements, parts, service and more.
American Farm Tractor & Implement Dealerships tells the stories and shows the images of many who were involved in the story. Even if you've never set foot on a farm, you'll enjoy reading about the tightly knit weave of farm families and farm implement dealers. It's a success story that is a colourful part of life in North America.
