Our History

Higginson Farm Equipment has been in Hawkesbury, Ontario for over 100 years. In the late 1800's George Owen Higginson established a Massey Harris dealership on Highway 34. Higginson became the established dealer name in the areas of Hawkesbury and Vankleek Hill, guided by its core values of integrity, commitment and knowledge. Following many successful years, the farm machine business continued with his son John Higginson. John then acquired the International Harvester franchise of the area, located at 2682 Highway 34 where he resided with his family.

Later, Ian would become the third generation of the Higginson Business. Ian launched his career and experience by travelling throughout Ontario with International Harvester, and then later carried on the farm equipment business. Following the International Harvester era, Ian built a successful Belarus dealership at 2682 Highway 34. Higginson Farm Equipment now works into the future with the MTZ and Foton Tractor line, in supporting customers and expanding dealers. Most recently, Higginson Farm Equipment has partnered with McCormick to offer you the latest in equipment technology and innovation.

We still work by the core values set by our founder, George Owen Higginson - Integrity, Commitment and Knowledge."
