Sharecropper's Antique Farm Equipment Club EDGETA Branch 96 - Houston, Texas

Branch 96
Branch 96

Our club’s origins began in LaGrange Texas where our charter members decided to start bringing back the local agricultural heritage of years gone by. Some of our club’s charter members included the initial officers; Roy Pieper, Patrick Wostarek, and Helen Wostarek.

During February 1994 we began with a few individuals with a shared interest in old tractors, engines, and other farm equipment who decided to organize into a social group which would share knowledge, resources, and exhibit together at local shows and events. The club was formally organized in May of 1994 with the club name “Rainbow Antique Farm Equipment Club”. A few months later the club changed the name to “Sharecroppers Antique Farm Equipment Club” which continues on today.

In July 1997 the club joined the national club “Early Days Gas Engine & Tractor Association” and became branch 96 in the South-Central region.

Our club’s purpose is the preservation of antique farm equipment through the restoration, education, display , and operation of such equipment at local shows and events. Our club members share knowledge of locating farm equipment to preserve, restoration techniques and locating parts, maintenance procedures, and unique operating procedures of agricultural equipment from a by-gone-era.

The Sharecropper’s Club enjoys sharing the agricultural history and knowledge of the past with the generations of the future.
