Old vintage tractors live and breath in Springfield, New Hampshire. I found this wonderful old, patina-ed Ford red and white vintage tractor working on building up a wood pile in a woodlot.

The Ford N-Series tractors are a series of farm tractors that were produced by Ford between 1939 and 1952, spanning the 9N, 2N, and 8N models.
The 9N was the first American-made production-model tractor to incorporate Harry Ferguson’s three-point hitch system, a design still used on most modern tractors today. It was released in October 1939. The 2N, introduced in 1942, was the 9N with some improved details. The 8N, which debuted in July 1947, was a largely new machine featuring more power and an improved transmission. It proved to be the most popular farm tractor of all time in North America.

Vintage tractors photographed by fine art photographer Edward M. Fielding. “I don’t think I can drive past an old tractor in the field, up by the barn or resting in the back forty without stopping to take a photograph.” says New Hampshire based photographer Edward M. Fielding. “The amazing machine’s are the lifeblood of the farm. Farmers use them for all sorts of chores around the farm, basically taking the place of oxen of old, and unlike the family car hidden away from the elements in the garage, these machine often spend their life out doors getting dirty and grimy. Getting rained on, snowed on and so on but they continue to faithfully do the work around the farm for decades if not for generations. Lots of personality can be found in these old machines.”

Farm Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes – Beautiful vintage look fine art photography of heirloom ripe red tomatoes at the farm stand at Muster Field Farm in North Sutton, New Hampshire. Perfect decor for the modern farmhouse or country kitchen. Beautiful light streaming through the windows of the old barn on to the fresh picked crop of juicy red sweet tomatoes on this wonderful fall day in New Hamshire.
The wonderful Muster Field Farm is a farm that has a lot of historical value in the tiny town of Sutton, New Hampshire. The farm was founded as the Harvey Homestead in 1772 by Matthew Harvey. The original house that was built had burnt down in 1787. The current house that is on the property was built shortly after, but has expanded since it was built. The new house was used as a tavern for the locals to drink at, the first post office and first library in Sutton, and a home for the descendants of the Harveys. In total, eight generations of Harvey descendants lived on the farm and added to it.
How did those early Icelander’s survive and even farm in such a inhospitably terrain? Before modern geothermal heating, before modern insulation and construction techniques – how did those early farmers survive the brutal winds, snow, ice and cold of living near the arctic circle? How did them manage to keep the livestock alive and tend to their daily needs of feeding and cleaning out the barn?
Short supply of wood on the island of Iceland, crazy wind and freezing temperature lead to some creative thinking on the part of early Icelanders. Pitched roof houses build right into the land with turf roofs solved many problems of keeping out of the howling wind to keep things toasty and also so the whole house didn’t blow away.
Roofs were lined with the only plentiful building material – turf or sod. Living sheets of grasses covered the roof. Volcanic rock provided the foundation and side walls.
Inside was small and sparse. Less room to heat and more body warmth to conserve. Bedrooms often housed the entire extended family in wooden bunks with sides to keep the covers handy.
One bedroom lead to another and downstairs often had passageways to the barn if the barn wasn’t in the basement. Easy access to livestock during storms and the 24 hour days of darkness in winter.
The technique of building with durable, renewable, and widely available turf first appeared with the arrival of Norse and British settlers during the 9th through 11th centuries at the height of the Viking Age in Europe.
Historic records suggest that up to 50 percent of Icelandic dwellings were partially comprised of turf until the late 19th century. As populations began to cluster in cities like Reykjavik, wood buildings replaced stone masonry and earthen architecture. After fires razed the city in 1915, concrete became the material of choice. – National Geographic

Meet one of my neighbors! I managed to get this great shot of a beautiful cow when it came over to investigate my little westie dog Tiki. Tiki thinks cows and deer and just about anything with four legs is a big dog that needs to be barked at but these gentle cows just liked to come over and investigate.
The American farmhouse represents integrity, ingenuity, self-reliance, and agricultural heritage. Today, the farmhouse is a rare survivor from another era that can be found sensitively reinterpreted by artists, carefully preserved by original owners, or functionally maintained by farm-to-table artisanal food producers. In more than 200 stunning images, Steve Gross and Sue Daley have painstakingly photographed 20 of the most beautifully preserved farmhouses in the northeast. Some are working farmhouses that have been passed down in families for generations; some have been made productive again by a whole new generation of organic farmers. Still others have been rescued from neglect and restored to their former splendor. Each house is accompanied by an overview of the farmhouse owner and how he or she maintains the property. Fans of the farm-to-table movement as well as historic architecture and preservation will find this an intriguing and beautiful read.
Praise for Farmhouse Revival:
“Those interested in a homey, country style of decorating or in home restoration will be inspired.” —Library Journal
“Above all, the greatest joy is just looking at the beautiful time-worn places and appreciating the way those that came before led a happy and fulfilling life of simplicity and utility within their walls. For once you have read this book, you will realize that in many ways, it is the farmhouse that helps to restore us, and not the other way around.” —Preservation.com
“Buy the book Farmhouse Revival for the photos—for inspiration . . . the authors clearly know architecture and antiques.” —Dan’s Papers
“Perusing Farmhouse Revival is a marvelous experience . . . and is sure to make readers wonder what stories the farmhouses in their towns could tell.” —Cleveland Plain Dealer
My neighbor on Hayfield Road in Etna, New Hampshire, part of Hanover home of Dartmouth College, has this beautiful old red New England dairy barn which we walk the dog by nearly every single day. He used to have a couple of beef cows so we always call this walk – the trip to the cow. The dog understands.
Anyway he also occasionally brings out his cute vintage Ford tractor with its blue and white paint scheme and rounded styling. It really is cute. If any tractor was going to star in a Pixels “Cars” movie, this one would be it.
Recently a large canvas of this image was purchased and is going to Washington, DC.

We never tire of beautiful farmhouse decor—from bedrooms to kitchens, take a look at this collection of stunning artwork of vintage tractors, farms, landscapes, cows, barns and more! Great artwork for simple and rustic modern farmhouse styled rooms.
Rustic Modern is a method of interior design that refers to the use of historical period room installations or furniture within a more modern overall room design. The design method is used for both the creation of room design in new homes and the restoration of older homes in an effort to keep their original charm while updating their utility for modern families.
Shabby chic is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique.
Rustic Meets Refined – Getting that great modern look with a bit of a country twist just requires a few great elements such as down home photographs and artwork. Old-fashioned farmhouse interiors may have been cozy, but they were also often dark. Today’s approach to farmhouse design combines many of the style’s classic elements — wide-plank wood floors, exposed beams and rustic wood furnishings, with a much brighter take.

Looking ahead, we’ll be in the pond-side house and hopefully mostly unpacked and settled, kid off to college by the autumn fall foliage season. The scene of brilliant orange, red and yellow leaves against the blue of the pond and ocean should be spectacular. Meanwhile I’ll share some of my past pond and fall foliage artwork and photography from around New England.
