Fred and Anita Weagant started the farm machinery business as a division of F.R.Weagant, General Merchant in South Mountain, Ontario. In 1953, Fred Weagant went to Smiths Falls to pick up a Hay Rake tongue and came home a Cockshutt dealer. Other manufacturers' lines were added over time. The South Mountain dealership prospered and a new 6600 square foot was built on Hwy 43 in Winchester in 1976. The Winchester store sells a full line of New Holland tractors and equipment in addition to many other short lines of equipment.
Currently, a solid body of 63 employees excel in customer service. Second and third generation family members are continuing in the business started so many years ago by Fred and Anita Weagant. 2013 is our 60th Year anniversary.
