If you don't yet have a 2017 calendar, then you might want to put the new 2017 Classic Farm Tractors Calendar on your wish list. Collecting and restoring classic farm tractors continues to be one of the hottest hobbies in the U-S, and tractor fans can get an up close look at more than a dozen beautiful machines, thanks to the 2017 Classic Farm Tractors Calendar.

John Harvey debuted the calendar back in 1990 and it's been going strong for almost three decades now. The 2017 edition highlights more than a dozen rare and unusual tractors - and also has a special story on the 8th Annual Mackinac Bridge Antique Tractor Crossing.

"This is the 28th edition of the calendar and it's among the best ever printed," says Classic Tractor Fever producer and host, Brian Baxter. "We've got great full color photos, along with detailed owner and tractor information." The cover tractor on the 2017 is a rare 1972 John Deere 3020 owned by George Braaksma of Sibley, Iowa. This 3020 was built in a low profile style for use in orchards, and perhaps only about five were built this way.

In addition, a rare - and large - 1917 Avery 18-36 tractor was given to Texas A & M University for use on its farm nearly a century ago. Avery tractors were built in Peoria, Illinois, but the company went out of business many decades ago. Texas collector Lou Buice has restored the Avery to like-new condition, and the tractor is the September feature in the new calendar.

From Case to Farmall, Massey Harris to Ford, Minneapolis Moline and more, the 2017 Classic Farm Tractor Calendar honors farm power of the past and has a brand of interest to everyone with a farming connection. In addition to the unique calendar, there is a Classic Tractor Fever DVD called "Timeless Treasures", that shows each of the calendar tractors in action and gets the story straight from the collectors who are preserving these machines.

"People love to see these beautiful classic tractors work and hear the sounds of the old engines," Baxter says. "It's a great way to spend 90 minutes on a winter afternoon, warmed up by the sights, sounds and memories of these machines that played such an important role in putting food on tables across America and the world."
