Celebrating the Tractor
September 10, 2017
The Yesteryears Farm Show in Longmont has been a family tradition for Niwot’s Slepicka family since 1990. The event, held annually during the last weekend in August, celebrates the history of farming through displays and demonstrations of antique farm equipment.
Known for their antique tractor collection, which they display at their property on 79th Street in Niwot, Jerry and Marsha Slepicka are fixtures at the show.
“We want to make sure to keep history alive,” Marsha explained when asked what brings them back year after year. “Kids want to know about farming and how things were done.”
Marsha spent the weekend inviting children to spin the prize wheel at their booth while her husband Jerry chatted with visitors. “We love to talk to people about [our tractors],” Marsha said.
