Farm equipment company is topic


John Agnew will give a free lecture titled “Agnew Farm Equipment: 194 Years Serving the Community” about his family business at 7 p.m. Thursday at Canfield Historical Society’s Bond House, 44 W. Main St.

Agnew Farm Equipment is one of the oldest family-run businesses in the state. Over the years its inventory and display items have evolved from steam-powered equipment to diesel and gasoline powered farm machinery. With the township’s changing from a farming community to a bedroom community and retail center, the company turned to the lawn and garden industry.

For information, call 330-533-3458.
