The auction was a bittersweet day!! To watch the largest collection of Ford and Fordson tractors in the US being auctioned off.Some 80 tractor's,175 implements as well as thousands of tractor parts.People from all over the world ever continent but 3 was there.Two of the English Fordson went back to England and I purchased a Fordson Major HI-CROP AND 1940 9N with a grain swather.Lots of Palmer's close personal friends purchased tractors.A 1926 model F Fordson was purchased by our neighbor her uncle purchased it brand new in 1926.It rained before and during the auction MUD EVERY WHERE!!! but the auction was a success and we thank everyone that supported,purchased and worked those two wet-cold days Thank You!!! We have picture on our facebook pages Fossum Ford Tractor's.

Palmer helped me out with a couple of things pre-internet. Later on when I was in MINN visiting friends, probably some 15 years ago, we went down to visit. I had called to make arrangements and he took the time to give us a tour through all of the buildings and all around them. A very fine man!

no there was no recent auction! I haven't been on yesterdays tractors for quite some time and didn't realize all the comments on the auction. so I decided to comment and personally thank everybody for the support! I never fully know the impact my dad left on the Ford tractor world Intel he passed away I just knew being the oldest son I was the one dragged from one tractor to another tractor and it was a major inconvenience on a teenager social life. As I grow older I worked very closely with my dad and the tractor business and I grew to have the same passion and the knowledge for tractors as he did. I know I'll never be quite like my dad but I do hope I can carry on the Fossum name in the Ford tractor world. Palmer is greatly missed!

I thought that auction was held a couple of years ago. Did I miss something?

Yes, this auction was in 2009 I think.
Hard to believe it's been 4 years already.
Kenny (Solberg)and I went the one day when all the parts and junk were sold.
We met John (Lumpy) there and spent the day with him.
I think Loren is trying to bridge between his father and what he is doing now. He wont be able to bring back the Palmer era or put his collection back together but I sure can't fault him for trying to trade on the family name. I do wish him well at it.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
