Pioneer Acres

For those who prefer the written word, prepare to be disappointed again.  This post is another video-focused offering.  There are some non-video posts coming, so don’t despair!

Back on August 12, we had the chance to pay another visit to Pioneer Acres.  This marks the third time I have visited the museum, which is located just north of Irricana, Alberta.

Pioneer Acres houses an outstanding collection of machinery.  Farm implements, trucks, tractors, and everything in between.  There are even horses for those interested in things of a non-metal variety.

We had a wonderful visiting the site with Emily’s parents.  We had a private presentation on the history of Allis-Chalmers, watched tractors of all sizes compete in a tractor pull, and watched the “Parade of Power”.

There was a lot going on and we didn’t see everything there was to take in, but I hope you watch the video and get a slight appreciation for all Pioneer Acres has to offer.

Have you ever checked out this place?  Let us know in the comments.

    We’ve been going to the Pioneer Acres Annual Show regularly since 2001. The tractor pull is a highlight! We also enjoy the old time farming displays.
    Was the smoke fairly thick there too?
