Sep 02, 2008 — A hundred years ago, steam power was used on farms during the fall harvest. Black steam engines on massive steel wheels traveled from farm to farm. They belched smoke, hissed steam and drove belts typically attached to threshers and choppers. This antique farm equipment is rare today. Over the weekend, the St. Lawrence Power and Equipment Museum held its annual Old Fashioned Harvest Days. It featured lots of old tractors, engines, and fieldwork demonstrations. Today's "Heard Up North" is the museum's resident 1923 Farquhar Steamer.
