In 2015 Market Farm Equipment Limited celebrates 53 years of serving the farm industry. Established in 1962 by Howard and Eve Market in the small hamlet of McGregor Ontario, Market Farm Equipment began as a manufacturer’s rep/distributor. After fire destroyed the original building in the early 1970’s, Market Farm Equipment relocated to its current location in South Western Ontario, 4 miles north of Grand Bend along the eastern shore of Lake Huron. In 1976 Howard and Eve’s daughter and her husband, Barb and LeRoy Meloche purchased the business. As the company continued to grow, Barb and LeRoy’s daughter Pat became the Secretary in 1984 and the following year Pat’s Husband, Howard Green started work as the Sales Rep.

In the early 90's, many changes to the farm industry occurred such as no-till planters and drills along with a need for an easy-fill auger system. This quickly established Market Farm Equipment as a leading plastic auger producer throughout Canada and the United States. 2000 saw a third generation take over the reins when Pat and Howard Green became the new owners of Market Farm Equipment. Long on tradition, a fourth generation, Pat and Howard’s daughter, Natasha and her husband Chris Fisher now work in the business.
Now into 2015, Market Farm Equipment can truly be considered global, with augers around the world in such places as the United States, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, France, Spain & the Philippines.
We at Market Farm Equipment would like to thank the farmers, dealers, suppliers, distributors, friends, past & present employees who have made our past 53 years successful, and look forward to continuing to serving the farm industry.
