Antique Tractor Pull
The Association is introducing one of the events that was very popular in the past and that is the Antique Tractor Pull. This is not a competitive tractor pull but rather a "tug-for-fun" event. The idea was to have an event where participants could exhibit their tractor in a semi-working enviroment and have fun in doing so. The tractor pull even is currently operated by Shelton Farm.

STEAM and TRACTOR PLOW WEEKEND
Each year the association holds a steam and tractor plow weekend, usually in mid October, weather permitting. Once the farm and fields are identified and a date is set, steam engines and tractors start arriving at the site. Water and gas tanks, coal and kindling boxes are filled, and every moving part is greased and oiled in preparation of an early start come plow day.
ANNUAL STEAM and GAS WORKDAY
Sat. Aug 29, 2015
Each year, at the end of August, in preparation for the Pasture Party the Association holds a workday. Volunteers armed with working equipment of all sizes and descriptions gather at Fairfield View Dairy Farm to participate in the workday.
An invitation is extended to all members and friends to come and spend a Saturday morning participating in one chore or another and afterwards enjoying some good food and conversation.
