For some of the tractors and other vendors… click here

Teen Scribe Jessica Transue, who is also in Greenville High School’s Interactive Media Television (IMTV) program, went on assignment to Farm Power of the Past, held over the weekend at the Darke County Fairgrounds.

Here is her report…

I went to the tractor pull on Saturday, with most tractors pulling over 200 ft. Around 70 people showed up for that. Other activities included a horse and pony pull later that day.

The place was filled with tractors everywhere, a lot of friendly people too. There were vendors selling food ranging from Frisk to the lemonade shakeups.

Kids loved the two places where you could put corn ears in a machine, and it would take all of the corn off the cob and spit out the cob. Then you could either grind up the corn, grind the cob, or cut the cob with an automatic saw. I talked to one guy who owned one of the corn places… his business was all the way from Florida.

Toy tractors ranging from little $5.00 ones to ones that were $800 were available for purchase. There were lots of antiques for sale, along with used miscellaneous items.

There were more people who showed up than I thought, and I went in the morning. I enjoyed it, and especially recommend it to people who are interested in buying antiques and people who love tractors and farming.

Watch for it next year… you’ll have fun.
