The Vaderstad story began in 1962 on a 30-hectare farm near Vaderstad, Sweden. Rune and Siw Stark lived there with their 4 children. Rune Stark used a rigid tine wooden harrow to till the soil, just like all the other farmers around but with the limited durability, he grew tired of making a new wooden harrow at the start of every season. He designed and built a rigid tine harrow using steel rather than wood. Next came the idea for a folding harrow, to aid with transportation and from local orders the production line began.
Fast forward to today, Vaderstad are now recognised as a manufacturer of premium tillage, drilling and planting machinery.
