This old 1950s Farmall tractor was donated to our farm–it took us a while to find someone to help us move it to the farm, but last Sunday it finally arrived!
The tractor came with a number of attachments–including a plow, which I am ecstatic to say will help us keep our 200-yard driveway clear this winter (and also means I won’t be shoveling the whole thing! yay!!!).
The tractor had belonged to my aunt’s 93 year-old father-in-law, who’s had the thing for years just sitting in a garage at his place over in Vassalboro–which is nearly an hours’ drive from the farm. To even get the machine running so that it could be loaded and moved, Keith has made several trips over there to work on the engine.
I am so grateful such generosity–every farm needs a tractor, and this is going to be a huge asset for Runamuk.
