We got a new tractor! For the last few years we've known we needed something bigger to help manage our ever increasing acreage, so when the opportunity arose we barely hesitated.
This Kubota will help us better manage our new farm with more sustainable practices, less tillage, more cover cropping, and tons more organic matter.
It's investments like this that are much easier to make when we know we have the security of a community supported agriculture backing our farm's success, so thank you members! You've all contributed to making our business stronger.
In the top picture, you'll note a sickle bar mower from ancient times. It even needs a special attachment to connect to our tractor. When we found it on the new farm it was covered in weeds, but it still works! Modern technology juxtaposed against old farming know-how. Seems to me like a good place to start a new farm.
