Farol Ltd was founded in 1976, by George Vellacott an ex SCATS manager in Hampshire and former agricultural engineer with farmer financier Roland Harris in Lewknor, Oxfordshire. It started as a machinery trading and engineering center coupled with the Fiatagri new tractor franchise. As a new player in the market full of well established machinery dealers, Farol had to be diverse and very soon became a major importer and exporter of good new and used Agricultural tractors, combines and machinery. This is turn complimented the retail side of the business very well with Farol being able to quite often be more competitive on price and this allowed the business to expand relatively rapidly. After a few years trading the Vellacott family obtained the full share holding in Farol and as to this day the company is 100% family owned.
