Heritage is evidence of our history and way of life. Historic farm machinery shows us how our industries, farms, work practices and communities have changed over time. Farm machinery can also help us to understand the impact of European settlement on the landscape. It reminds us of the old ways of doing things and helps pass on traditional skills and trades to a new generation.
