Chris Kelley recently started an endeavor to restore and recreate tractors, engines and sprayers that were manufactured by Friend Mfg. Co., which once was a very large manufacturer in Gasport.

In celebration of Friend and other antique farm equipment, Chris and Becker Farms are hosting Friend Fest on September 28th. 

Among the highlights is an antique tractor ride that will lead a procession of tractors from Becker Farms to Gasport View Dairy on Mountain Road and back.
