GREAT FALLS – Last weekend marked 34 years that the Antique Tractors and Toy show made an appearance at the Montana Expo Park.

Collectors from all over the state — and the nation — showed up to display their collections. One booth, in particular, was a familiar face to many toy tractor collectors — Toy Farmer Magazine.

The publication was started in 1978 by Claire and Cathy Scheibe in LaMoure, North Dakota.

It began as a four-page black and white newsletter with just 17 subscribers. But through the years the magazine transitioned to full color and can now be found across the globe.

Following Claire’s death in 2000, Cathy and her family have continued to build the brand. The family was also instrumental in starting the National Farm Toy Show in Dyersville, Iowa
