Antique John Deere Tractor features at farm fundraiser

Posted by Green Fun Store on 7/20/2010 to Farm Lifestyle
A recent fundraiser featured not only educational efforts and food, but also an antique John Deere tractor.

According to the Martha's Vineyard Gazette, the event was put on in Massachusetts recently by the Farm Institute, which uses the Meals in the Meadow evening as a way to pay for some of the programs it offers. Those involve teaching adults and children about sustainable farming practices.

Dickie Brown has been to the Meals in the Meadow fundraiser every year that it has been put on. Along with traditional cowboy attire, he highlights a 1938 John Deere tractor that is still in operation at the farm.

These types of events are not new, as people gather around the country to take part in state fairs and other farm-related events. Along with featuring new equipment, these shows may also provide a connection to the past through showcasing older equipment.

The fairs also give communities the chance to connect, as families from a wide area are often encouraged to attend. They also give local businesses the chance to grow their clientele and improve sales.ADNFCR-3425-ID-19900042-ADNFCR
