Some things never go out of style... like shade on a hot day. Dating to the early 1980s, Heritage Farm Power was launched when owner Ken Buell couldn't find a replacement canvas for his old six-panel parasol-style tractor umbrella.

Today the company provides not only tractor umbrellas but also umbrellas for vintage combines, parade trailers, garden tractors and golf carts. Retro-farming is putting antique tractors in the fields for hay and tillage operations, with shade provided the old-fashioned way. And buggy-top-style umbrellas are popular with tractor ride participants.

"We've had a lot of fun gathering old units for samples and collecting old literature showing how umbrellas and brackets were used in days gone by," Ken says. "We've accumulated pictures and catalogs showing umbrellas being used back to the Waterloo Boy in 1920."
