Archdale man collects John Deere tractors

Brandon Crotts is a John Deere enthusiast. In fact, he collects them.

“Yeah I got them [tractors] in the house all locked away because old toys like these.. can’t sell ‘em,” he said.

Even though he lives in town, he still takes them to the family farm occasionally to use them.

Cotts and several thousands of other tractor and antique farm equipment fans from all over the country will be at The Denton Farm Park in Davidson County this week for the annual Southeast Old Threshers’ Reunion.

The event starts Tuesday and runs through Saturday night, ending with a fireworks display.
