FarmChief has worked the land for generations and we plan to be here for many more. Our high-spec implements provide farmers and contractors around the country with the best ways to cultivate, sow, harvest, manage nutrients and generally keep things going to make the most of New Zealand’s potential.
Even in the 1940s, our founder Peter Murray, founder of Murray Implement Company, saw the potential. Coming from an agricultural background, he began his working life as a dairy hand. He built up his agricultural knowledge, progressing to the workshop, as a diesel mechanic, and then on to tractor and implement sales. Over the next 24 years Peter worked for companies including P & D Duncan and International Harvester Company before taking the opportunity to go out on his own. In 1975, the company began in the backyard of Peter’s Innes Road home; specialising in selling and servicing farm equipment.
