The Classic Tractor Fever television series is shown on a regular, weekly rotation on the RFD-TV network, which reaches over 35 million homes through cable and satellite providers.
For over twenty-five years, the goal of Classic Tractor Fever is to actively support and promote the preservation of American agricultural history so future generations can realize, understand and appreciate the importance of our rural heritage.
Throughout those years, we’ve created millions of memories by discovering and capturing the dedication, skills and expertise of professional and amateur restorers and collectors of antique farm power equipment through both print and video. Classic Tractor Fever also creates the popular Classic Farm Tractors Calendar and DVD series each year.
Brian Baxter is the producer and host of Classic Tractor Fever. For over 20 years he has worked to promote the preservation of America’s agricultural history, classic farm tractors and machinery. Though he did not grow up on a farm, Brian’s grandfather and Uncle did farm in Indiana with Farmall, Ford and Oliver tractors. And, as a teenager Brian spent part of one harvest season driving a 1949 Farmall M with a mounted two-row corn picker. Brian spent nine years as a television farm broadcaster, and began producing Classic Tractor Fever in 1997.
In that role, Brian has interviewed collectors from across the United States as theyʼve shared their passion, knowledge and personal stories. Classic Tractor Fever has covered tractors and tractor shows from coast-to-coast, and even covered a classic tractor plow day in Alaska.
