The event runs from noon to 5pm. The convoy starts from Primrose, north on Highway 124, ending at the Wallace farm at number 625007 Sideroad 15, near the proposed 2,400-acre quarry site.

There will be live music and free farmer’s potluck dinner to celebrate.

Owners are asked to bring tractors of all colours, ages and sizes, and horses and ponies are welcome, too.
