The Sandhills Antique Farm Equipment Club was formed in August 2000 by 6 charter membersto preserve Harnett County's and the surrounding area's historical farming heritage. They desired to educate current and future generations by restoring and displaying equipment and agricultural techniques that are a part of Harnett County's rich agricultural history. The Club has grown to approximately 50 families, and meets monthly under the direction of Club President, Alvin McArtan, and the Club officers.
In 2007 the Club began the development of 20 acres of leased Harnett County land named Sandhills Farm Park, located south of the Government Center, off the end of Alexander Drive. The Park was ready for use in the Summer of 2008, but it continues to be a work in progress as new buildings and displays are added. Sandhills Farm Park is also the site of the annual Sandhills Farm Show the third weekend in March and the Harnett Regional Agricultural Fair.
OUR MISSION is to preserve southern agricultural heritage through restoration and display of antique farm equipment at work, and to provide educational and fun family activities for North Carolinians of all ages.
