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.
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.
