Model John Deere tractors fill display cases and line the walls of Ye Old Country Kitchen In Snow Camp, North Carolina, as owner Bryan Wilson chose to decorate the restaurant with his favorite memorabilia, according to IndyWeek.com.
His stockpile of memorabilia was partly inspired by a collection that he saw on a collector website that had various models and toys dedicated to the farm equipment. However, he told the news source that his love for the smaller tractors came due to his memories from working on his grandfather's farm.
"I started getting toy [tractors] at a young age and have been collecting ever since," Wilson told the news source. He noted that although a majority of what he owns from the agricultural giant is of a smaller nature, he does have several used John Deere tractors that he keeps at his house.
Wilson and his family run the restaurant and keep adding to their collection, all of which are placed on the walls of the establishment, IndyWeek.com reported.
Memorabilia websites like BleedingGreen.com sell everything from books about collectors items to guides on how to acquire a number of toys and models dedicated to John Deere.
