|John Farnworth - Specialist Books on the History of Massey-Harris, Ferguson and Massey-Ferguson|
Farnworth is a farmer's son and was born on a farm on the
outskirts of Manchester. It was very near the Massey-Harris
factory and they used to send the new equipment from
North America for testing on his grandfather's farm for a
year before it was put on the British market. Hence he
grew up in a farmyard full of Massey-Harris equipment in
the post war years. This was the start of John's
affection for the Massey family of equipment. The family
went on to use Ferguson and Massey-Ferguson just as
extensively as they had the old Massey-Harris equipment.
Whilst at university he started to collect Massey-Harris tractors before embarking on a a career overseas in agricultural research, development and consultancy. When running overseas projects he always used Massey-Ferguson equipment wherever possible and gained much experience of their use in harsh Middle-Eastern conditions.
In recent years, John has knuckled down to the serious business of compiling detailed but highly readable, well illustrated and informative books on the whole history of Massey-Ferguson, the predecessor companies and the range of equipment which has been produced and marketed by them. To date he has published TWELVE substantial books and has another TWO in publishers hands for publication at a later date. Needless to say, he has others planned!
