RFS has been established for over 25 years. We have grown from a single Depot at Ripon in 1982 to be one of Yorkshire's largest Farm Machinery Dealerships with 5 Depots right across the county. We were able to open our purpose built depot at Tadcaster in 1985. The next growth was the acquisition of the dealership at Ottringham in 1987. Growing again in 1991, with the dealership, at Darrington. 1999 saw the acquisition Keighley. This provides large coverage in the Yorkshire region for the Ripon Farm Services group.
