Big Boys And Their Toys, It's A Beautiful Thing

They say you can take the boy off the farm but you can’t take the farm out of the boy. How true this is for Ron and Mark Hacker. Coming from a long line of farmers, it was just a given that they both would work the land too. However, they took their love of farming one step further when they started to collect tractors. These boys found a way not to give up their toys.

But, don’t look for their machines to be sitting pretty in a barn. Instead, theirs can be found year-round performing different tasks on the farm. “It’s no fun to have something and just let it sit in the barn,” Mark remarks. “We use ours every chance we can.”

They didn’t set out to specifically collect, but rather it was just a natural progression. “We needed different tractors for different jobs on the farm,” Ron explains. “As we kept adding a few more and a few more we found we not only enjoyed the tractors but also the hunt for them.”
