Farm Engines

Forest Home Farms has a small collection of hit-and-miss and throttle-governed farm engines, most located in the tractor museum. These engines range from 3/4 to 6 horsepower. These antique, hit-and- miss and throttle-governed engines are typically made of cast iron, generally have one cylinder, two large flywheels, and look very much like the steam engines they replaced.

Come visit us at Forest Home Farms on Saturdays when we’re having an event and open to the public, giving tours and tractor rides, generally from 10:00AM – 2:00PM. Check the events page on our website for those upcoming events. We’ll be happy to show you these engines in operation, up close and personal.

For more information please download our booklet here to read more about the specifics of the engines we have available to see.
