On April 10, Dragoon’s Farm Equipment, Inc. celebrated its 60th anniversary.

They had door prizes, demos, discounts and served pancakes and sausage to thank the community for its support.

Gary Dragoon, part-owner of Dragoon’s Farm Equipment, Inc. said a big “thank-you” was in order to everyone who made the anniversary day a success.

The business began with Gary’s grandfather, Floyd Dragoon, who opened the store in 1953.

Floyd tried farming and plumbing, and handed the store over to Gary’s father when he decided he wanted to stick with plumbing.

Ownership might have changed hands, but the store, which now employees 20 people, has always been in the Dragoon family.

It’s not just about selling products, though.

Dragoon’s has certified technicians in both farm and lawn and garden equipment, which means they can service everything they sell there.

“It really separates us from the big box stores, for sure,” Gary said. “I think we have one of the best service departments around.”

Dragoon’s carries both new and used products, and has a full line of equipment for farms, lawn and garden.

Their products include utility vehicles, chain saws, log splitters, mowers, overseeders, tillers and gas grills.
