Who We Are

The Wenger Family
In 1947, Carl Wenger began working as a “nickel man” at local auctions when he was only 14. He purchased tools that needed repairs, fixed them and resold them. After marrying Margaret Buffenmeyer in 1950, the couple began dairy-farming in Myerstown, PA. In 1952, as an echo of his “nickel man” days, Carl starting buying and selling used farm equipment and tractors and within several years, that endeavor had blossomed into Wengers Farm Machinery. While Carl grew the business, Margaret spent her time in the home raising their seven children.

What We Care About

Faith. Family. Farming. Community.

The services that we are passionate about are as diverse as the community that we call home. Over the years, we have developed and honed our areas of focus through the shared interests of Carl and Margaret, and their children and grandchildren who are involved in the Foundation.
