How it Started
Tarter Farm and Ranch was founded in 1945 as the Tarter Gate Company when Chrisman Vanwinkle "C.V." Tarter moved his family to Dunnville, KY and began clearing his land and cutting timber to manufacture wooden gates. Using only hand tools, the Tarter's made 32 wooden gates a week and C.V.'s son Roger sold them for $2.50 - $3.00 throughout the Bluegrass area.
Roger passed these values onto his sons, Donald and David when they took over the company. They expanded the business to include steel gates and other farm and ranch equipment. In 2008, as the product line continued to grow, the company name changed from Tarter Gate Company to Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment.
