“Our aim is to have fun, show sportsmanship and develop friendships.”
Established in 2008, The Northern Maine Antique Tractor Club is a family oriented organization focused on the preservation of our rural heritage and restoration of the “old tractors”, equipment and related items that were used in the farming industry by the past generations. It is also our mission to build an awareness of our Agricultural heritage to present and future generations by showing these old tractors and equipment at work.
History of our Club
Our members original started with the Maine Antique Tractor Club, where we became what was known as the Northern Branch of MATC. Due to the geographical distance between us and the Southern Club we felt it best to establish our own club in Northern Maine & the New Brunswick area. We continue to support the MATC and there mission and will always be grateful for there guidance and support in those beginning years.
The Northern Maine Antique Tractor Club has grown to over 300 members from Fort Kent to Southern Maine and New Brunswick, Canada. Membership is open to anyone and not limited to just those individuals with a tractor. Our club is very diverse and offers something of interest to everyone from youth to adults, such as tractor pulling, demonstrations, plow days, tractor trek for charity, trade fairs, and community and family events.
Continue to support our annual tractor trek for charity, establish a scholarship fund for a graduating senior who is furthering his/her education in Agriculture or related field. Focusing on improvements to our new Agricultural museum project. We will stay true to our clubs beliefs and shall always try to develop successful events to ensure the club has a prosperous future.
