small farmers, read this book !
Small Farm Equipment lays the groundwork for understanding all the various machines and mechanisms on the farm, describing best practices in the context of the workplace, rather than the yard or garden.
Written by Jon Magee, who has worked for Atlas Farm in western Massachusetts since 2009, after working on small vegetable farms in Pennsylvania and Missouri. In 2012 he started The Farmer’s Library to offer educational resources on farming. Jon's years of farming experience directly inform the choice of tools and equipment, working methods, maintenance tasks, and common problems presented in the book.
