In the Seventies, John Deere’s flagship tractor would have been the 4020, and 2 wheel drive at that, and as the name grew, there was a need for John Deere sales and service in and around the New Forest.
New Forest Farm Machinery was formed in 1979 by 3 partners, all with farming backgrounds and John Deere connections. The changes in the industry have been enormous over this period of time, from tractors that had no cabs, to tractors that virtually drive themselves.
Some 25 years ago there was an opportunity from Deere, to diversify into Turf equipment, and that is what we did.
The business grew, and inevitably the original site in Honey Lane became too small and inaccessible. A replacement was sought, and a new purpose built premises was developed at Blashford in 1993. This location is well suited to serving Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire and beyond.
In 2009 the company had out grown the new building and more workshop space was needed and as a result, a major extension was added.
Today the business employs about 25 people. We can service anything from a lawn mower to a 300hp tractor, and the principal franchises being John Deere, Kuhn, Ifor Williams trailers and Stihl chainsaws.
We hope you find the website useful and easy to use and look forward to seeing you.
