“This merger allows us to remain strong in this highly competitive ag industry, and in Green Tractors, we have found a partner with complementary capabilities and a shared view on how a company should run.

“Our goal at Green Tractors Earlton, as it was at Ag Nor, is to become an even better business partner to you and your operation. I will remain Branch Manager and you will recognize all of my staff from Ag Nor.”

History of Green Tractors

Nobleton Farm Service began in 1956 as a small agricultural repair shop. Glenn Davis began selling machinery shortly after, signing on with the Oliver Corporation. "Green" tractors were sold from this location as early as 1957. The business grew over the years and in 1977 a new facility was constructed on the site on King Road near Nobleton Ontario.

In 1985, John Deere became the principle supplier to Nobleton Farm Service, continuing the tradition of "green" tractors. 1992 saw the addition of Clark Moore Motors of Brampton, a long time John Deere Lawn and Grounds Care dealership. In 2002, Milton became the target of expansion, as Halton Turf and Tractors was incorporated at a location just off the 401, continuing the tradition of a strong John Deere presence in the Halton region.

In 2010, Green Tractors merged with Greendale & Utica Equipment Services Inc., with two locations in Omemee and Port Perry, Ontario further strengthens our position in the equipment market.  The combination of Greendale & Utica’s strong presence in the agricultural market with Green Tractors' expertise in commercial and municipal markets will provide our clients with a wider range of products and services, as well as a greater selection of products.
