In 1946 Bob Chambers started a repair shop in Vergas, MN. In 1960, he started selling Ford tractors and equipment. Then, in 1971, the business was purchased by Willard and Dean Haarstick and continues to be managed by the Haarstick family today.
For 40-plus years, Dean Haarstick has been working as the lead mechanic and is known on a first name basis around town and with many area farmers. Many Vergas Ford customers know that Dean is honest and fair, and he always offers a solution that meets their needs.
In addition to repairing Ford tractors, Dean Haarstick is the Mayor of Vergas, Scoutmaster of Troop 322, and a member of Heart O' Lakes Harmony. He and his wife, Karen, have one son in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
