Hoosick Farm Show
The Tractor and Agriculture Show is an exciting feature at Hoosick Fall’s sixth annual Pumpkinpalooza community-wide event. Antique and vintage tractors, horse-drawn farm equipment and implements and contemporary machinery will be on display on Saturday, September 27, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Walter A. Wood Reaping and Mowing Company made wooden horse-drawn farm equipment right here in our town from 1865 to 1924 and sold machinery to farmers in Hoosick and around the world – as far away as the Middle East and Russia. It was Wood’s company that made Hoosick Falls, N.Y. a boomtown in the 19th century. Following his lead, many other businesses came into town, bringing people and money with them. Because of this, the Wood Company is often credited with building Hoosick Falls back in the day. Kevin O’Malley is organizing this event and is looking for folks from Hoosick and the surrounding communities to enter their equipment in the show. He is interested in people showing all different makes and models and years, but most especially, he is hoping for vintage Walter A. Wood equipment. Best-in-Show prizes will be awarded for old and new equipment. For information or to register, call 518-894-5035 or email [email protected] You can also visit hayc3.org or call HAYC3 at 518-686-9050.
