Since the dawn of time, mankind has continually used ingenuity to develop and perfect the tools needed to provide food and clothing.

From soil-scratching sticks — the first farm “implements” — to satellites that provide signals to automatically guide high-powered tractors and combines, farm equipment has evolved through the ages. Keeping the history of farm equipment alive, sharing knowledge and appreciation for antique tractor and farm machinery are the driving forces for the Peninsula Tractor Organization (PTO). Anyone who is interested in antique farming equipment is welcome to join, whether you have a collection or not.

This week, Kelley visited with PTO member Doc Brown as he shared stories and a glimpse to the past at the Antique Tractor Day at Nassawadox Sawmill.
