Hometown Hardware from Kern Machinery


Kern Machinery's roots in Kern County go back as far as 1917 during WWI when WB Camp was sent to oversee cotton cultivation.

He would later start a farm in Kern County and eventually a farming equipment store near Buttonwillow. Today they are still farming, and still offering everything you need to get the job done with more locations than you can shake an almond tree at.


We're proud to work with Kern Machinery as they help us get our Family Farm Fanatics around the farm each Octoberfest with their tractors!
