Bastert FamilyThe Bastert Family - from left to right: oldest daughter Amanda, Linda Bastert, youngest daughter Lauren, Jim Bastert, son Tyler.

Jim Bastert’s dream of operating his own business started with him buying and selling equipment out of his garage for several years. Bastert Farm Equipment was established in 1986 with a small staff at its current location on 606 W Wood St. Camp Point, IL. The new location offered customers a place to come browse new and used equipment as well as offering a full service shop.

Tyler Bastert, Jim’s son, grew up playing and working at Bastert Farm Equipment since he was a young child. In 2008 he officially joined the family business. Tyler continues to show the same dedication to meeting customers’ needs that has been Bastert Farm Equipment’s success from the beginning.

Over the years improvements have been made to accommodate the needs of our customers. In 2013 Bastert Farm Equipment outgrew their facilities and a new addition made way for our first ever showroom as well as an expanded parts area.

Our business continues to grow while still providing quality customer service that a family owned business offers. We thank you for your past, present, and future patronage. From our family to yours we appreciate your loyalty and look forward to providing great customer service for many years to come.
