C Fearns Agricultural Engineers
Was started by Charles Thomas Fearns, a Derbyshire Farmer who was converting horse drawn drays and wagons and fitting them with pneumatic tyres in the 1920's, he would turn his hand to anything agricultural, then in the 30's he was busy changing shafts etc to convert machinery for use with tractors, etc and the business was born. He would make, adapt and sell parts for tractors, and supply parts for farm machinery to provide additional income for the farm.
He carried on with his farming, contracting and repairing until the 1950's when his son John Claude Fearns took up the challenge and incorporated the knowledge learned first in the quarries, diesel fitting and later whilst with REME to move the company forward. In 1981 he moved C Fearns to it's present home at Oakenclough Farm and his son Charles Fearns has carried on with the agricultural engineering and repairs business and added the supply of high quality tractor parts and tractor accessories, alongside parts for agricultural machinery at affordable prices to the company profile.
We are still very much a family run business and are happy to maintain the personal service and helpful attitude that makes farming such a great industry to be in. We are not linked to any main dealership & therefore can offer competitive prices for most makes of tractor and machines. We supply to enthusiasts and trade, have access to thousands of replacement tractor parts, most are available even if not in stock on a nextday carrier.
We have a small retail outlet and visitors are always welcome. We have a fully equipped workshop and long experience of service and repair to these hard working machines. We appreciate that downtime on a busy farm is a major problem and aim to provide a quick and efficient service that keeps the down time to a minimum
