Rare Day Out at Vintage Tractor Day
This year’s annual vintage tractor working day at Aden Country Park should prove to be the best yet. There will be a rare chance to see a wide variety of vintage tractors from the 1930s to the 1960s. Other attractions include Clydesdale Horse ploughing, sheepdog demonstrations, along with an opportunity to see the newly digitised Morrison Collection of local rural photographs, traditional Scottish music by the Buchan Heritage Players, and information on the Rare Breed Survival Trust (RBST).
The annual vintage tractor day will be held at Hareshowe Working Farm, Aden Country Park, Mintlaw, on Sunday 25th September, from 12:15pm until 4.15pm
A splendid variety of vintage tractors and will demonstrate how ploughing, harrowing, cultivating, ridging, seeding, rolling, scarifying and shimming were carried out.
Weather permitting, we also hope to have the opportunity to demonstrate one of the major tasks of the Buchan farmer’s year, threshing.
Working and static tractors on display include: Massey Ferguson, John Deer, International, Ford, David Brown, Fordson, Ferguson, Leyland, Nuffield, McCormack, Gunsmith, Field Marshall, Ursus, Lister, Case, Zetor and many more.
Traditional Scottish song and music will be performed by the Buchan Heritage Players in the courtyard area outside the Aberdeenshire Farming Museum where there will also be an opportunity to either have lunch or fly cup whilst listening to some great Scottish music.
Landscape Officer at Aden Country Park Jack Grant said: “This will be a rare chance to experience the sights and sounds of Buchan’s farming heritage so why not make a visit to the Hareshowe and the Aberdeenshire Farming Museum as part of a family day out at Aden Country Park”.
