The Great Northern Oliver Collectors club was founded under a large oak tree during the summer of 1997 as a local chapter of the National Hart-Parr Oliver Collectors Association. We are one of two Minnesota chapters, and primarily serve the southern region of the state. In 1998 our club began doing an Oliver calendar and continues to do so with the ongoing support and enthusiasm of our members.
If you would like to host a event in your area please contact us by sending a email to: email@example.com. Also, If you have an event where you would like to feature Oliver, Hart-Parr and White Tractors please send a email letting us know.
Since its inception in 1998, Our "Oliver Collector's Calendar"has been a way to support the GNOC. Whether buying a current calendar or submitting a photo for consideration in next year's calendar, we appreciate your support!
Prices remain the same as previous years!!!
