The Legacy Farm and Lawn Story

November 1, 2008 marked the beginning of a new era for three local John Deere equipment stores. Barton County Implement Co. of Lamar, Missouri, Purinton’s of Lockwood of Lockwood, Missouri, and Joplin Farm and Lawn of Joplin, Missouri, are pleased to announce the combining of their respective companies to form a new company, Legacy Farm and Lawn. In 2012, another John Deere dealership in Nevada, MO was added to the Legacy family. Barton County Implement has operated their company headquarters in Lamar since 1956.

The new name Legacy Farm and Lawn was chosen to recognize the years already invested by the previous generation serving people in this area, coupled with the future generations serving people in the years to come. We recognize the importance of quality individuals to represent the company as employees. Many faithful years of service to their customers have been invested by these individuals. Legacy Farm and Lawn will be able to supply products to fill needs from the homeowner’s lawn care products up to the needs of the largest in production agriculture.
