1960s - Humble Beginnings
The story of Väderstad begins in 1962 at Rune and Siw Stark’s 30-hectare farm, Herrgården near Väderstad. The young family had four children whom later all became involved in the business.
Rune Stark used a rigid tine harrow to till the soil just like all the other farmers around. These had always been made of wood and for obvious reasons their durability was limited.
Rune Stark grew tired of making a new wooden rigid tine harrow at the start of every season and spent his nights visioning one in steel. No sooner said than done. Rune Stark designed and built a rigid tine harrow using the experience he had gained from many years of farming.
