A Brief History of Falls Farm & Garden Equipment Company
“Only in America can a 20-year-old kid with $3000 and a pick-up truck build a successful business.” That is how Tim Havens, Sr. describes his humble beginnings. It is also a glimpse into his patriotic spirit.
On December 1, 1982, Tim Havens launched Falls Farm & Garden Equipment Co., Inc.
The company’s first location was a rented facility on Burgoyne Avenue in Hudson Falls. The business opened with the Allis Chalmers line of equipment. Mr. Havens remembers his stock consisting of a farm tractor, two compact tractors, thirteen snowblowers, and a few Jonsered chainsaws. At the start, Tim was sales, parts and service. He opened his business with three weeks of school left at ACC. He recalls, “When it was time for class, I’d shut down to go to college.” A year after opening in 1982, John Deere equipment was added.
By 1985, the business had outgrown the building on Burgoyne Avenue. A 1200-square foot addition was erected, but by 1987, they were again busting at the seams. It was evident that the company needed to move. After a lot of sweat equity, in 1988, Falls Farm & Garden Equipment Co. relocated to its current location at 1115 Dix Avenue in Hudson Falls. Mr. Havens has always invested back into this business to provide the best atmosphere for his customers. Since moving to Dix Avenue, additional property has been purchased to display inventory, the showroom has been recently renovated and the footprint of the facility has increased twice.

Mr. Havens believes in small business. He appreciates his dedicated employees and loyal customers.
