The Mayer Farm Equipment LLC that we are known as today has a rich and long history in the farm machinery business. It was started by our father, Al Mayer, back in 1948 as a used equipment dealer while he was still in high school. In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s he started as a new dealer carrying Allis Chalmers, New Holland and New Idea along with his used business. During this time our family lived behind the dealership and as a result grew up at the business. Dad sold the new part of his business to a good customer in the mid-60’s. He then moved his family to Fayette County to farm and continued in the used machinery business. His used business then began to grow. By the 1970’s he was back into the used equipment business full time.
