In our state, Washington, graduating high school students are required to complete a Culminating Project. Different school districts have different rules, policies and procedures. For his project, my son decided to restore a Farmall M tractor.
This was the beginning of tractor mania at Red Gate Farm. Since that first tractor 3 years ago, 7 (I think it's 7 - I should know this) more have come to reside at Red Gate Farm. All, but one, are Farmalls.
As I write this; my son, my father and a family friend are on a roadtrip to Rollag, Minnesota to attend a tractor show - The 57th Annual show held every Labor Day Weekend by The Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion . It's nice to know that my 20 year old son and his grandfather share a hobby of restoring old tractors and enjoy spending time together pursuing their passion... even if Grampy is a Case man.
