The old Australian cast jointed farm gates from the turn of the 20th century are harder to find but as popular as ever due to the nostalgia around owning a heritage gate like those on our grandparents and great-grandparents old farms. Demand for old gates for sale has pushed prices quite high despite them being in really bad condition. We are often asked about restoring old gates but quite often the old “drag & drop gates” as they were once known, are not economically viable to fix. The bottom bars are
The purchase of a new gate usually gives rise to a few questions. The most common concerns are whether a new gate will fit; how much it will cost to get it delivered – especially if it’s coming from interstate and thirdly how long it will take to get it. This video address all those concerns and more. I hope it helps you too …
Our gates are absolutely gorgeous – thank you! They’ve turned out exactly as we had imagined them (if not better) and we couldn’t be happier with the result.
Thanks again for all your help in developing the design, and for the outstanding workmanship of the end product – we’ll be referring people your way without hesitation.
We are delighted with the gates, we love the design and my husband loves the robust construction. I can’t tell you how many people have asked about it and we happily refer them back to you!
I just wanted to send this quick email to say a huge thankyou for all your patience and help with me in deciding on our railway gates. They fit perfectly and the kids love opening and shutting them each day. They are also successfully keeping the dog in as well. I am sending through some photos of the gates with this email too.
Farmweld understood exactly what we wanted and came up with this design that needed no alteration. The gate and panels are really well made and look fantastic at the start of our drive. We have received many positive comments from friends and neighbours. We recommend Farmweld to anyone who wants to have gates or panels made for a special area around their home or farm.
Living in the country we always seemed to “make do”, take “what’s available” be asked “why would we want that”, be told “you live in an old house” “you’re off the main road no-one will see it”. I wanted to know why couldn’t we have something special, something pretty.
On our dairy farm we often put cattle in the paddock surrounding the house yard, and as I like other country women work off farm I was forever getting in and out of the car to open and shut the gate. Our front gate was old and rusted and needed
A big thank you for the wonderful Estate gates – the big gate has made such a difference to the front of the property (as you can see from the picture) and has attracted several admiring comments, and the three smaller gates go perfectly with the Australian Colonial style of the house. It was easy to fix the rabbit mesh using the additional bars you provided, and this works really well, providing
When my wife and I decided that we wanted a more impressive entrance way to our property, we scoured the internet and other media for a good-looking, quality, yet reasonably-priced gate. We visited factories and outlets, and examined websites over many months but nothing met our criteria. We then found an advertisement for Farmweld gates and their product appeared to fit the bill – attractiveness and affordability. And it has proven to be the case. We are delighted with
Heritage cast jointed gates are much sought after and increasingly more difficult to find. Farmweld’s cast jointed gates are available with two styles of cast iron knuckles. They are hard to distinguish from the original heritage Sunshine McKay and Simpson gates.
