There is a big difference between managing a large commercial farming operation and a small acreage farm on your property. Farmers in the latter situation are often classified as ‘hobby farmers’ throughout Australia and New Zealand. Even if you are not a professional farmer and don’t intend to use farming as a primary source of income, there is a lot you can do with your property to incorporate farming aspects into your life. Perhaps you want to grow a few small fruit and vegetable products to feed your family. Perhaps your son or daughter is interested in equestrian and you want to keep horses on the property. Or maybe you are interested in supplementing your income with hot commodity crops. In any case, what you need to get started is to find the right hobby farm equipment for sale.
One of the biggest challenges that hobby farmers face is finding the right equipment for their operations. Certainly, you will need some quantity of farming supplies and tools. Depending on the size of your acreage and the amount of farming you plan on doing, it might even make sense to invest in a tractor—albeit, a small one.
As you might expect though, not many manufacturers or retailers in the agricultural industry focus on hobby farmers. Because corporate or career farming operations are significantly larger than any hobby farm operation, they also tend to be the big buyers. The big money, in other words, is in serving these kinds of farmers—not necessarily in targeting the hobby farming niche.
At Tractors North, we believe that it is extremely important to support the hobby farmer community. Some of these farmers produce valuable, difficult-to-grow crops, while others rely on their farming operations to put food on the table. They need equipment that is geared towards their requirements. With this in mind, we strive to provide an affordable solution for all small acreage farms. From tractors to slashers, posthole diggers to rippers, we offer a diverse array of hobby farm implements and hobby farm supplies at prices you can afford.
