Hello all! I just joined- looking for advice and suggestions on tractors, then some advice for maintenance, etc once I get mine bought. I'm a former farm kid, but that was too many years ago. We own a small acreage- very large garden, small orchard & vineyard & bee keeping (25+/- hives now) are the primary activities. Possible small livestock in the future. I missed out on some opportunities on buying a used tractor this summer. Partly, me being cheap and some misses were just plain bad timing! I'll be working the garden, mowing five acres, moving snow and just some misc. other activities a tractor will help with. Thanks and I look forward to future visits.
