In 1936 two great engineers, David Brown and Harry Ferguson, got together to commence the manufacture of tractors in a Yorkshire engineering factory. Their first effort, the Ferguson-Brown A type was a milestone in British agricultural history.

Ferguson eventually went off and joined Henry Ford, but David Brown concentrated his efforts on the production of an all-British tractor. Commencing with the VAK1 in 1939, David Brown Tractors became market leaders in numerous aspects of farm machinery manufacture. From their rural factory at Meltham, the firm’s products were exported all over the world.

The aim of this website is to produce an accurate and authentic record of the only all-British tractor manufacturer. If you’d like to add anything to this resource of would just like to get in touch – please use the form below. Thankyou.
