Paddy Kearsley has always been interested in anything to do with tractors and farming. In the late 1990’s he started supplying machinery for farmers and small tractor owners. This is when he became involved with Fleming Agri-Products in Northern Ireland.
After doing a lot of research into various machinery companies, looking to find a supplier of well-made machinery at affordable prices, Fleming Agri-Products seemed to fit the bill and have been their leading supplier in the area since then.
Having worked with small tractors for many years, Paddy decided in 2000 to look into supplying compact tractors to smallholders and smaller farmers. After a lot of research and discussions with various suppliers we were accepted as local dealers for Mitsubishi and Kioti Compact Tractors.
Since then we have taken on a number of other companies supplying products including Oxdale, Protech, Zanon and SCH.
Paddy’s wife and son have now also joined the business, so we have Paddy (the boss), Pat (his wife and partner) and Pete (our son).
Pete also runs his own business, Kearsley Agri Services from our yard / workshop near Northallerton. He does most of his work on farm tractors out on site and he also repairs and services any compact tractors that we have supplied, and we hope he will take over the business sometime in the future.
