Rocks are generally a nuisance on farms, but if you have lots of them around, why not embrace that fact and put them to good use? Here are some ideas.
Even a small farm can go through hundreds of small square hay bales in a season. A hay elevator can save time and effort stacking those bales.
I had great fun looking at hundreds of old tools during a rare, “just for fun” shopping trip to a quirky store in a nearby town, but I left them all there.
Deer are a pretty big issue on my Wisconsin farm, so when I started a new orchard, I knew I’d need to protect the 10 young trees I planted. Here’s the fence I chose.
If your orchard is not near a hose or irrigation system, an inexpensive, gravity-fed leg tank on a wagon gets the trees the water they need.
Keeping an organized collection of general spare parts such as nuts, bolts and washers can save you time and trips to the hardware store.
For some tasks, such as heavy mowing or plowing, full throttle is necessary, but for many others, less throttle saves fuel and also creates less noise.
