Now that we have our 40 acres, we are looking at the best tools that will help us build the farm.  Since we are growing in a cold environment, we are going to build a greenhouse first.  Our greenhouse will be built in the ground with the south facing wall being made of greenhouse film.

A List of What our Farming Tractor need to do 

Here is a list of our requirements for a tractor:

1.       Be able to dig trenches for water lines

2.       Be able to dig a foundation

3.       Have a large bucket to move dirt and create tiers inside the greenhouse

4.       Be able to unload pallets off of a flatbed truck
