Tarter

Tarter: Celebrating 70 years of improving life on your land.

Tarter Gate, founded in 1945, is still managed and owned by the Tarter family.

C.V. Tarter founded the Tarter Gate Company, located in Dunnville, Kentucky in 1945. He made wooden farm gates by hand and sold them throughout the local area. He sold the business to his son and daughter-in-law, Roger and Vivian Tarter. They, along with their sons, Donald and David Tarter, expanded the business to include tubular and galvanized-steel gates along with other livestock-related products.

In 2008, the company changed its name from Tarter Gate Company to Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment.  Currently, the 4th generation of the Tarter family oversees what has become the largest manufacturer of farm gates and animal management equipment in North America.

Today Tarter has almost 1,000,000 square feet of production facilities in two Kentucky communities and a full manufacturing and distribution center in Corinne, Utah.
