|[A DAY AT THE VILLAGE CHEESE FACTORY]|
Nestled away behind the picturesque O'Keefe Ranch, in the Spallumcheen Valley, lies a gold mine in engineering history.|
At first glance, the area might look like a farm machinery graveyard - the place where tractors come to die.
Looking around, you find yourself standing in a sea of archaic hunks of forged steel, rivets and wheels, their once brilliant colors rusted away by years of harsh and punishing weather.
These relics from a bygone era lie in a dormant state, their usefulness spent decades ago in the name of progress.
In fact this is where they come to be brought back to life.
The miracle workers capable of this engineering feat are the members of the Spallumcheen Pioneer Power Club who since 1991 have painstakingly restored and preserved tractors, steam engines and other pieces of farming equipment.
The purpose of the club is preserving the past. Collecting and keeping antique machinery so they stay in the country and remain a part of our heritage. The club can restore these machines for generations to come.
If you would like any information about the Pioneer Power Club and it's activities or have something that might be of interest to them, you can contact Sid Foshaug at (250) 546-3832.
