"If our sales and services are not beneficial to the customer, neither are they good for Pequea Planter."

Core Values


Be honest and upright in all things.

Do what you say you are going to do.

It is better to lose a dollar than to not follow your word.

If we make a mistake, admit it.



Products that are durable.

Products that are safe.

Products that look good.

If you are concerned about quality, do or say something.



Serve God first.

Serve each other second, care for each other, be interested in each other’s lives, joys, and sorrows.

Third, serve the customer.

We cannot please everyone, but we need to try.

If we cannot serve the customer immediately, acknowledge them with a smile and say, “we will be with you.”



Our goal is to have everyone go safely home at the end of the day.

Look out for each other. Speak up if something does not look safe.

Try to attend the monthly safety meetings.



Work together.

Share space and tools as necessary.

Be flexible, adjust your agenda for the good of the company.

(Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape!)

Our History

In 1977, we built first corn planter, for our own use.

2 row horse drawn, lever lift, long tongue, using used JD 1240 row units.

We built our second planter in 1978.

2 row horse drawn, lever lift, long tongue, using new JD 80 row units. 1979

We sold 5 planters, 2 row horse drawn, lever lift, long tongue, JD 80 row units. Coverted the planter to trailer type, MaxEmerge row units.

In 1980, we sold 9 planters, mixture of JD 1240, 80, MaxEmerge (7000) row units.


We now sell 100 to 150 planters per year.

In the late 70s & 80s we converted hunderds of old horse drawn planters to plateless, using JD 7000 meters.

In the early 80s we started building 2 row 3-point & pull type planters, using only 7000 row units.

Since 2013 we build complete new 4 & 6 row planters (PLANT MASTER) using our own frame & Shoup MFG. row units, similar to JD MaxEmerge Plus row units.

A big part of our business is designing & fabricating parts & attachments to convert and update older 7000 & 7200 planters, such as: no-till coulters, row cleaners, row markers, wheel frames, drive systems, & more.

We either fabricate or buy parts from other after market companies.

We also custom build planters for specialty needs such as: 15", 20", 24", & 28" rows. splitter planters for beans, folding planters, etc.

Either new or used, we customize each planter to match customer needs.
Thanks for your business!
