Welcome!


The Antique Farm Power Club is a local West Michigan chapter of the Early Days Gas Engine and Tractor Association(E.D.G.E.& T.A). We are Branch # 42 of this nationwide association. 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

We welcome individuals(men, women and youth) who share our interests to join us.
