Antique Farms A Great Family Heritage to Discover Part II

Antique Farms provide fascinating family outings that make history come alive. Seeing how people worked and lived, especially in our own local areas really connects kids to their heritage with a big link of pride. There's nothing like actually experiencing Living History to make it come alive. If you are into collecting Antique farm pumps, Milk Jugs or tractors, it's a lot of fun to go to Farm Museums and Country tractor shows. They are really fun and are a great way to spend a family day that will be remembered and appreciated. Believe me, kids go nuts with old Farm equipment, especially tractors! I remember playing on old tractors as a kid, in my home town over 40 years ago! Playing farmer with my two wild brothers, on old ramshackled tractors is a memory I still delight in.

Who knows? Maybe that is what hooked me into the Antique Farm passion? What is really amazing though is that you can find ancient relics at these shows often in Top running shape. Did you know you can still order parts for some of these living history machines? To share in the fun, here is a list of some of the best Farm Museums out there.
