Our business began in 1966, when owner Ray Nunn made a trip to the John Deere warehouse in Indianapolis, Indiana to pick up our first inventory of tractors in a borrowed pick-up truck. He returned with two John Deere Model 110 lawn & garden tractors (the only model available at that time) and a box of parts. He worked as the only employee for Ray's Lawn & Garden while continuing to work for his father-in-law, Wayne Rogers, in the Rogers Oil Co. petroleum delivery business. The new lawn & garden business operated out of a small building in conjunction with the oil company.
Additional employees were now needed to serve the expanding community of customers. Since that time, we have grown withJohn Deere in providing equipment that meets the needs of the growing Commercial and Consumer Equipment markets. Also, to provide a variety of equipment to our customers, we have added Echo, Shindaiwa, Honda, Landpride, Little Wonder (Mantis),Billy Goat, and Brinly Hardy to our product line.
Today we are one of the largest John Deere riding lawn equipment dealers in the Louisville market area. We have earned theJohn DeereCircle of Excellence award repeatedly since its creation in 1985.
