Among the keenest focus of attention will be the Shotton Farm collection’s 17 tractors, some nearly 100 years old, including a very rare Case model R, and an original Case 500, and buyers will be offered the chance to bid for a Fordson E27N fitted with a Perkins P6 Engine, and two County Super 4 tractors.

The many implements to be sold will include a selection of mounted and trailing ploughs, along with a large quantity of new and used Ford, County and Massey Ferguson spare parts.

Now farming Shotton with his son, David, Ian Harvey is opening the new chapter in the family’s farming development with the offer of the entire and remarkable collection including the earliest tractors he began to acquire more than 50 years ago.

Harrison & Hetherington senior auctioneer, Ian Dick, said. “This is a unique opportunity for buyers to add to their own collection some very rare tractors presented in excellent condition. This is going to be a wonderful event, almost a vintage tractor festival the like of which we have never seen in Northumberland.”
