I couldn’t farm without it!


For some it’s duct tape. For others, their Leatherman. Or baler twine. Or their smartphone.

So we want to know: What is it that you can’t farm without?

What’s the tool, the piece of equipment, the software, the person, the thing, that is indispensable on your farm? You use it every day. Or at least every week. Or it’s the thing that makes your farm life so much easier, or more profitable.

Just fill in the blank: “I couldn’t farm without ___________________.”

Email your responses to editorial@farmanddairy.com, or mail them to P.O. Box 38, Salem, OH 44460. If you want to include an explanation, that would be great. If not, we’ll take your simple answer. And if you want to include a picture or two, that would be great! Please include your full name, address and phone number/email. Those won’t be published, but if we want to hear more about your answer, we’d like to contact you.

Send us your wisdom by Wednesday, Sept. 7. We’ll compile the answers and share them in our special Farm Science Review issue, Sept. 15.

So tell us: What can’t you farm without?
