Our Heritage Our Future
The Orton family came to California in the 1850s in search of a better life out west. They came to the fertile Central Valley for the many opportunities available only here. James Orton opened the first store in Lemoore, California during the late 1800s beginning a family tradition.
In 1906 he opened a store in the town of Stratford. That first store in Stratford sold everything a person would need for farming from dried goods and firearms to simple plows.
After World War II, James' son refocused the business to sell the new generation of mechanized equipment from International Harvester.
After five generations, Orton's Equipment continues to be a family business. Stop by and see why generations of valley families choose the Orton family for farm and construction equipment. The Ortons are here, ready to serve your equipment needs.
