Club works to increase farming appreciation

PENFIELD -- New technology has changed farming in many ways. An area event takes us back in time. The I & I Antique Tractor Club hosts Historic Farm Days to show what farming used to be.

This year, more than 100 Ford tractors were on display; some from as far away as Germany and Belgium. Event organizer John Bensyl says the club wants the younger generation to have an appreciation for the way things used to be.

"I think it's just important to bring that history alive and we do that here with thrashing and shelling and hay-baling and some sawmills that we operate," said Bensyl.
