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
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
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.
