Goliath Tractor Clinic

This training event is only for pre-registered members of Pioneer Acres.

Have you ever been to a tractor show and seen one of the big gasoline tractors rumble by? Have you ever wondered how and where you could learn to operate one of these antique goliaths? Pioneer Acres is the place and June 22nd is the day.

This is your opportunity to be trained on two different gasoline traction engines! Learn how these enormous machines start, and how to maintain them.

Attendees may also have the opportunity to become trainee operators on one of Pioneer Acres' traction engines.

You will have an opportunity to be trained on two separate machines. One in the morning at 9:00 am. One in the afternoon at 1:00 pm.
