Here's Our Co-op Model E-3 Tractor

 

Bloomingfoods is now the proud owner of a beautifully restored 1947 Co-op Model E-3 tractor. Manufactured by Cockshutt Farm Equipment, Ltd. in Branford, Ontario, this model was sold throughout the U.S. in the 1940s and 1950s to local farmer-owned cooperatives.

We are proud to own and use this beautifully restored tractor, reminding us as it does of the small family farms we care about and the cooperative business model we practice. We intend to use the E-3 for a variety of chores and events around our facilities and the town. For now, you can introduce yourself to the Co-op tractor over at the East store, near the Garden Center!
