About Cornthwaites

John Cornthwaite (Farm Machinery) Limited was established in 1977 by John Cornthwaite, an East Lancs lad who had a passion for dealing in tractors and agricultural machinery. The company ran at the old auction mart at Pilling, Preston for 30 years, and then in July 2007 we moved to our new premises at Elm Farm, Station Lane, Nateby.

Over the years John and his company became increasingly involved in buying and selling tractors and machinery all over the UK and overseas. In 1978 John Cornthwaite (Farm Machinery) Limited took the John Deere franchise. We are now the main John Deere Agricultural and Grounds-care dealer for North Lancashire, South Cumbria and the Isle of Man.
