Founder Pat Goodwin spent several years searching for the best equipment for his small farm. He’s always preferred compact tractors for their improved maneuverability, fuel sipping characteristics, and of course, lower cost. Unfortunately, he had a lot of trouble finding good equipment for making hay with his small tractors. It seemed like most manufacturers and equipment dealers focused on big farm tractors and the equipment that fit them.

Then one day while researching, he found out about compact hay balers. In Italy, farms are smaller and hillier and require the use of smaller equipment. These “mini” balers could be operated with tractors as small as 16 horsepower, were exceptionally well engineered and built, and were more affordable to boot. He liked them so much, he didn’t just buy one, he decided to start a business selling them to others.

Our mission is to provide high value products to the North American market. These machines fulfill the need for quality equipment for the smaller farms, and their smaller tractors, that are becoming a critical part of the move towards sustainable, close-to-home agriculture.
