Down On The Farm


Well, not exactly. Another group that always shows up at the St. Pat's parade is this fan club for old, small-engine farm tractors. The top one looks like it came out of a steampunk video. Mrs. C remembers Farmall tractors growing up in Kansas. They aren't around any more. Her brother and his wife who run the old family farm have this gigantic New Holland machine.

We may get some snow tomorrow morning and the cherry blossoms are just beginning to pop at the botanical garden.  Hope it works out.

Love the old farm tractors Bob but can see they would never keep up with today's demands. It was a very enthusiastic Japanese gentleman who was using the Nikon, he was hilarious, insisting his wife pose with all the sculptures much to her annoyance. I got some good shots of that annoyance :)

What an excellent group of old equipment. My dad would have loved seeing this.

A fascinating first one- I've never seen one like that. We had our parade today, and there was a tractor involved at one point.

Great steampunk it is.

With the expansion of farms throughout the country to meet growing food demands, many people have forgotten that farms still use small equipment.

Thank you for sharing these photos. These are excellent examples of small-engine farm tractors that help get the job done no matter their size. It's also nice to see photos celebrating tractors that aren't made any longer.
