There is no shortage of events going on throughout the summer that can be a great way to get out of the house and enjoy a sunny day. One that you should really keep watch for and attend when you see it happening is an antique tractor show. It is amazing to see how our ancestors worked the land and cared for their livestock on a family-operated farm.
Commercial farming has brought about machinery that is quite amazing, yet nothing quite excites a history-buff like antique farming equipment. What is interesting to know is that some family farms still use the types of equipment you’ll see at an antique tractor show, including machines that are decades old. It is almost like they can last forever, and that might be because there were few bells and whistles that could break down.
An antique tractor show is also a way to show off whatever antique farm equipment you have around. It can be fun to compare yours to what others in the area have remaining from a bygone era. Even children can find it delightful to see old tractors and other farm equipment, so you can consider an antique tractor show a great family activity.
At Red Hound Farms in Clemmons, North Carolina, we love putting together a variety of farm events each year, and you might even see an antique tractor show come up, along with wagon rides, tractor pulls, farm tours, corn mazes, pumpkin patches, and other farm experiences. We love sharing our farm and our many animals with those in our community. We look forward to seeing you!
