Richard Woolley and his son Justin have been servicing the area of Napavine, Toledo, and Winlock for the past decade with their Chehalis-based tractor parts and repair business, Farm House Equipment.
Farm House Equipment is a marketing branch of Nick Nichols Enterprises Inc., offering a range of top quality products in tractors, mowers, outdoor power equipment, as well as associated equipment to go along with all of these products. Farm House Equipment also does repairs for these and other brands as well in their central repair and fabrication shop.
The duo started out as a hot rod engine repair shop but worked on farm equipment as a side job. After the recession of the past decade, Woolley determined that there simply weren't enough people buying hot rods, or having them repaired, and so their business made the logical jump to focusing mainly on tractor repair and supply.
Woolley has lived in the area for the past thirty years, starting out managing a power plant in Centralia, and Justin has lived in Napavine for most of his life. "We stress that we are a family-owned business, and we like to promote relationships with our customers based off of how friends would [treat one another]," Woolley stated of his business.
The business is open from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Farm House Equipment has just recently started their spring overstock sale, meaning major brand name mowers and tractors will be going for low prices.
