While many farmers may have used tractors to harvest their products, one farm in Indiana is going a little further back into history.

According to a report from television station WLFI, Little K Farms in West LaFayette hosts Wheatstock, where older pieces of farm equipment are used to collect the operation's grain.

"The event features decades-old tractors and machinery, which were used for harvest before the modern age of the combine," the television station said.

Using old equipment is a popular attraction among some farm enthusiasts, as they feel that the antique and used tractors keep communities connected to their agricultural past.

In fact, some farm shows across the country have events that specialize in featuring these used tractors and antiques, which may have been used for planting, harvesting and threshing.

John Deere also announced recently it plans on opening a new museum in Waterloo, Iowa, that will feature the history of its tractors and the engines that drive them. The facility is set to open toward the end of next year.ADNFCR-2034-ID-19880958-ADNFCR
