Why did you choose to do business in Lewis County? We started out selling agricultural equipment in 1979 and it made sense to be located in the heart of dairy country. At the time, there was an abundance of small farms that needed high quality equipment. Since then our product line has changed to support the recreational and utility markets. We’ve been a Honda dealer since 1981 and now it is 75% of our business.
What are the advantages of doing business here? One of the greatest advantages of doing business in our area is the vast amount of recreational opportunities available that complement our product line. Our local banks also make it easy for our customers to obtain financing.
