So who knew that the Porsche company made tractors too? At least, they did in 1960. This beauty pictured below was featured on NFHC’s float at the Apple Blossom Festival a week ago. It will also be at the 7th Annual Antique Tractor Pull and Show tomorrow. The event is expected to run from ten a.m. until three or four in the afternoon. Come and see us! Admission $5 for those over twelve.
The 7th annual Tractor Pull & Show, cancelled due to rain on May 31, will now be held a week later, on June 7. The fun starts at 10:00 a.m. Admission is $5; kids 12 and under are free. The Cookhouse will be open all day, ice cream and all. Please join us!

At their annual meeting on February 26, 2015, members of Northville Farm Heritage Centre returned the same executive as before: George Foote as president, Hank VanHattem as vice-president, Aart Veldhoven as treasurer, and Pat Reeves as secretary.
A couple of new directors were appointed, David Eye and Carl Parrish, while Wilfred Kinsman and Cathy Foley stepped down. For the complete list of directors, look under “Contact” on this website.
After all those back-to-back snowstorms we had, the sun finally shone for Northville Farm Heritage Centre’s Winter Frolic on February 21. The wind was still sharp but snow-suited kids didn’t seem to mind as they munched hot dogs and marshmallows, watched a blacksmith at work, or sledded down a steep man-made hill. Two teams of horses took turns on the sleigh rides, with a full load of passengers every time. Incidentally, both these teams, with their owners, will be seen in The Lizzie Borden Chronicles. They had just spent fifteen days on the set for that series.
Only some of the adults knew the amount of preparation that had to be made for this event: men with big snowblowers and tractor buckets gathered on Thursday to clean off the parking lots and make a track for the horses through three feet of snow. Then, it snowed and blowed again on Friday, filling in those hard-won paths. Jos Van Oostrum was one of several volunteers on the scene at seven on Saturday, bringing his big snowblower to repeat Thursday’s job. Snow clearing was done just in time for the first arrivals at ten. Check the photos; to see if everyone had a good time!
