About Rathell Sales & Service

Since the 1950's the Rathell Family has been providing Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and other surrounding states with quality equipment and great service to back it up. Charles Rathell started the business in Cordova, MD located right off US Rt.50. The dealership A.B.C. Farm Equipment Company, a J.I. Case dealership involved many great employees including Jeff, his son. The A.B.C. name was known well for quality service, products and parts. In the 1980's A.B.C. Farm Equipment took on the Ford product line. New Holland implements were taken on several years before.

In 1995 Jeff Rathell took over the business from his father and A.B.C. Farm Equipment Company became Rathell Farm Equipment Company, Incorporated. The new name still offered the same great service, products and employees to serve the community. With all of these great assets, Rathell Farm Equipment is a great company to deal with offering New Holland Equipment from grass mowers to combines and several other lines and shortlines.

As of July 2017, Rathell Farm Equipment stopped selling New Holland brand of tractors and farm equipment. We will still continue to provide the best service in the industry on most makes and models, including New Holland.

In November of 2017 Rathell Farm Equipment moved from it's original location in Skipton to Easton.  We now share a shop with Rio Del Mar on Elliott Road.

Early in 2018 we changed the name from Rathell Farm Equipment to Rathell Sales & Service to highlight the change from only traditional agricultural equipment to agriculture, homeowner and estate management equipment.
