WHO IS ART'S WAY

1956

Arthur Luscombe, an Iowa farmer and inventor who knew the meaning of hard work, founded Art’s Way Manufacturing in 1956.

 He’d built a rugged PTO grinder mixer on his farm near Dolliver, Iowa, and he wanted manufacture and sell it to farmers just like him — farmers who would recognize and appreciate a quality-built piece of machinery when they saw it. The product’s ability to tackle even the most demanding workload made it an overwhelming success — and secured Luscombe’s reputation as a farmer, entrepreneur and independent thinker who did things his way.
