Like a Box of Chocolates
Let me tell you how much I enjoy Farm Collector. I’ve collected military vehicles, boats, cars, one-lung engines, and in the process a few pieces of farm equipment. Of course I’ve gotten magazines from all the related clubs. At this point I just acquire rusting farm machinery (got to trade a couple of hay rakes for a manure spreader!) and have little intention of restoring it.
Of all the publications I’ve gotten in my various hobbies, none has given me the sense of anticipation of the next issue like Farm Collector. I continue to be amazed at the creativity that took place in the 19th and early 20th centuries and your magazine has become like a box of chocolates: I await each issue, then consume the stories one at a time each evening. Thanks for the great effort!Ted Bromage Mt. Desert, Maine
