In our country, there are a number of collectors of old tractors and agricultural equipment. The collectors are all very keen and spend a great deal of time and money acquiring and repairing this equipment much to the enhancement of their surroundings. One of the best-known collectors is Erez Milshtein from Ein-Vered where tractors have been collected since the beginning of the last century - those tractors used by the farmers to redeem the country.
When Erez left farming he began to collect item after item discovering what was hidden in the beautiful scenery and the rubbish dumps of the moshavim, the kibbutzim and settlements. In one decade Erez has succeeded in saving more than a hundred items of motorized equipment and dozens of allied items most of which have been repaired to a mobile state or are still being reconstructed. Later on, Yair Misch joind with his life-work collection of artifacts such as craftsman tools, ornaments and equipments the "Agron" (derived from the word gather)
