The purpose of this club is to preserve, restore and work antique farm and garden tractors, farm machinery, tools, automobiles and construction equipment and to display what our parents and grandparents had to work with to feed their families and our nation in the beginning of the twentieth century.  Showing the transition from horse, mule and oxen power source on our agricultural land to the steam engine and then the internal combustion engine.

From there we have advanced to the use of our equipment in demonstrating how our forefathers made their living and to the advancement of garden tractors and their pulling events.
