Saying “so long” to Allis

Today marks the end of an era – we officially retired Allis, our Allis-Chalmers 190XT tractor (the banner on this page and the mascot of Innisfree Farm). Up until recently, she was the go-to tractor for just about everything. But like all machinery, she got old. Rebuilt engines didn’t last, hoses leaked, seals broke, and it was time to give her rest. Because of her place in the story of Innisfree Farm, she won’t be sold. I hope to restore her in the future, maybe to work, maybe to show, but certainly to remind all of us here about where we came from and why we do what we do.
