WINCHESTER – Weagant Farm Supplies Limited hosted an open house on Wed., April 5, where Weagant family members and their staff welcomed about 500 visitors from all over Eastern Ontario. The event was the second of two open houses, with the first one at the Brockville location on April 1.
Weagants have had three generations in the family business which was started by Fred and Anita Weagant in South Mountain in 1953. A new 6,600 sq. ft. facility was built west of Winchester on Hwy. 43 in 1976. This location carries New Holland tractors and equipment and many short lines of farm equipment.
The Brockville location was added in 1983. This shop carries Kubota tractors and equipment, Kawasaki ATVs and Mules, White lawn tractors, and used farm equipment.
In 1993 Weagants expanded by creating Topline Trailer and Equipment Sales on Cty. Rd. 31, north of Winchester, which offers horse, stock, cargo and landscape trailers.
Weagants employs 63 staff and several family members, including Bob Weagant, son of Fred and Anita, at their multiple locations. For more information see www.weagantfarm.com.
