9 of the Top North Carolina Farm Tractor Salvage Yards

Worthington AG Parts

Our first pick is one of the most expansive farm tractor salvage yards in the country, Worthington AG Parts. Besides its location in Goldsboro, Worthington also has shops in Minnesota, South Dakota, Michigan, Missouri, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Iowa. The company is based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

So what can you expect to find at such a big salvage company? Used equipment aplenty, for one. This includes parts from such brands as AGCO, Bobcat, International/CaseIH, Belarus, Allis-Chalmers, and John Deere. The salvaged parts are quite extensive too, with plenty of brands besides the above represented.

If you can’t get to Worthington’s Goldsboro location, you can do most shopping on their website. When you see something you like, add it to your cart and check out. Obviously, you cannot buy tractors online. You have to call to get pricing on these vehicles. Then you can come on by and complete your purchase.

Worthington AG Parts is located on 3693 US Highway 70 West, Goldsboro, North Carolina 27530. You can reach them by phone locally at 919-735-0987 or call toll-free at 1-800-322-1871.

Burch Store Tractors

In Burlington, you’ll find Burch Store Tractors. The company sells a lot of Farmall row-crop tractors especially, but that’s far from all you’ll see on their website and at their yard. Brands like Massey Ferguson, Massey Harris, Oliver, Kubota, John Deere, and Ford have parts, equipment, and tractors here as well.  

On their website, choose a category to get a feel for what Burch Store Tractors has in stock. You can search for such things as branded tractor parts, tractor front bumpers, planters, push blades, drawbars, fast hitches, sidemount planters, fertilizer unit parts, and mounted equipment.

Find something you need? Then quickly snatch it up online. For example, maybe you want a 12-volt voltage regulator for tractors from Massey Harris, Massey Ferguson, John Deere, Allis-Chalmers, or Farmall. This costs $49.95. A New Zenith carburetor for Oliver, John Deere, Farmall, International, Case, or Allis-Chalmers tractors is $249.95.

You can also pick up these parts and many others on Burch Store Tractor’s eBay page or by visiting the salvage yard itself. 

Burch Store Tractors is on 4042 Burch Bridge Road, Burlington, North Carolina 27217. You can reach them by phone at 336-264-9361 or by email at 4burch@gmail.com.

The Tractor Place

Since 1984, The Tractor Place in Knightdale has been a family-owned and operated business. The Mize family, which includes married couple Linda and Gary and their son Brian, are in charge. When they opened their doors that first day, they’ve stayed in the same spot ever since.

If you’re seeking farm tractor parts from Kioti, The Tractor Place is where you want to be. Kioti’s Wendell fulfillment center is only a few minutes away from the Tractor Place’s store, making it very easy to get tractors and parts to the salvage yard.

The Tractor Place is located on 1920 Mize Road, Knightdale, North Carolina 27545. You can reach them by fax at 919-266-6364 or by phone at 919-266-5846. Their email address is sales@thetractorplace.com.

Ward Brothers Tractor & Salvage

Another North Carolina farm tractor salvage yard with a lot of history is Ward Brothers Tractor & Salvage in Hendersonville. They started even before The Tractor Place, way back in 1974. Rusty Ward, the Ward Brothers’ namesake, is also the founder. He had worked in agricultural equipment servicing and maintenance for three decades. Ward decided to take his expertise and share it with the Hendersonville area, and thus Ward Brothers Tractor & Salvage was born.

You’ll really only find gear, parts, and equipment for Deutz-Fahr tractors here, but the exhaustive list of parts is impressive. According to the Ward Brothers website, more than 300 tractor parts from Deutz-Fahr are available, so they’re certainly the ones to go to.

Is your farm tractor not running at its best? Remember that founder Rusty Ward has a lot of experience in agricultural equipment. That’s why Ward Brothers offers servicing and parts work as well.

Ayock Tractor Company

Here’s yet a third family-owned farm tractor salvage yard in the neighborhood: Ayock Tractor Company. This Goldsboro-based company started in 1975, with a first location change in 1993. Unfortunately, that building burned in 2015, so Ayock Tractor Company has moved to its third and hopefully more permanent location. Charles Ayock owns the company, Russell Ayock works as the general manager, and Brad Ayock is the parts and services manager.

The parts and tractor brands available here are more far-reaching than the last two salvage yards, giving you many more options.
