Welcome!


The Antique Farm Power Club is a local West Michigan antique tractor club. We meet monthly to conduct the club's business and for fun and fellowship.  We sponsor an annual spring show for the public and participate in a number of activities throughout the year which further our mission.

Mission

The Antique Farm Power Club was formed in 1991 by a group of antique farm machinery enthusiasts whose purpose is to stimulate interest in collecting, restoring, preserving, and exhibiting gasoline and oil engines, gas/diesel and steam tractors, power driven farm machinery and any other equipment of historical value. We welcome individuals (men, women and youth) who share our interests to join us.

Annual Show

This club presents an annual show of antique tractors and other farm equipment, trucks and rural antiques on
the site of the Muskegon County Fair Grounds, Fruitport, Michigan. Activities include tractor pulls, Ford Model A swap meet, children's activities, flea market, food vendors, toy displays, sawmill, early days' equipment demonstrations, "valve cover" car derby, tractor/truck parade, bonfire & marshmallow roasting.
