Foster's Growth in the Peace Region
The story of Foster’s is a story of expansion and growth, beginning in the 1950s with Johnny Foster establishing the Beaverlodge Seed Farm. In becoming the now well-known Foster’s Seed & Feed, the company grew to be the largest privately-owned buyer and processor of creeping red fescue in Western Canada.
The business expanded in the mid-90s when Foster’s focus grew into a total farm solution for customers in Peace Country communities. This meant adding cereal grains, canola seed, chemicals, field scouting, and fertilizer sales to the portfolio. From there, the transition into sales and service of agricultural equipment was natural — thus, in 2008, Foster’s Agri-World was born.
In 2014, Foster’s Agri-World found itself expanding with the opening of NAPA Auto Parts within its Beaverlodge location. As the first Agri-World location, this addition assisted Foster’s in our commitment to customer service to the people of Beaverlodge, Alberta, and the surrounding communities. Not yet satisfied, the business knew there was room for further growth throughout the region; and in 2016, Foster’s Agri-World opened its second location in Fairview, Alberta.
After two years in Fairview, Foster’s Agri-World was a well-known established presence, providing the opportunity to acquire the KUBOTA Country dealership in 2018. The KUBOTA brand continues to be a great complement to Agri-World’s portfolio. In 2020, Foster’s constructed a new building to house both Agri-World and KUBOTA into one larger, more efficient dealership, proudly committing our service to Fairview and the surrounding areas.
In 2022, Foster’s Agri-World expanded into the East Peace Country region with the purchase of a satellite facility in McLennan, Alberta. This gave Foster’s the ability to offer the same great service to our more eastern customers by conveniently having sales, parts and service a little closer to home.
Foster’s Agri-World is home to a team of experienced sales representatives dedicated to finding the right equipment to suit your needs. Their expertise and commitment to customer satisfaction have earned Foster’s Agri-World numerous sales awards and repeat business from many longtime customers.
Along with our Sales Department, Foster’s Agri-World has an exceptional team of Parts and Service Technicians, giving us the triple-threat advantage and our customers a one-stop-shop!
