For the first time ever the IPM has come to northern Ontario at Earlton, Ontario. History records that in 1846 when the first provincial exhibition was held in the city of Toronto, a special feature of the event was a plowing match. It took place on a farm on Young Street in the vicinity of St. Claire Avenue. The IPM has been in various locations in Ontario since 1913.
Today the plowing competitons are combined with a Rural Expo of farm related products, from tractors to GPS's, quilting and solar energy products. Shows of tractor pulls, music and picking the Queen of the Furrow. Check out the IPM here.
Here are a few pics of the old tractors on show.
