Do you pride yourself on your green thumb or your tractor-driving skills? Can you milk every cow in the barn before the breakfast bell rings? If so, you just might have what it takes to ace this farm equipment quiz.
There's no question that life on the farm is tough, but people have all kinds of reasons for choosing this lifestyle. Maybe it’s the family tradition, and you’re tilling land first planted by your ancestors. Perhaps it’s how you make a living, selling crops to grocery stores or at farmers markets. Or maybe you’re just seeking a simpler, back to basics lifestyle, and have decided that establishing your own homestead is the key to feeding your family on a budget, without the pesticides used in modern food production.
Whatever your motivation, farming not only produces the food you can consume or sell but also comes with a sense of pride in your own accomplishments. Of course, all that food and pride doesn’t come easy; farming is full of potential pitfalls that can kill crops, including pests, disease, rodents and the wrath of Mother Nature.
Fortunately, the right equipment can boost your odds for a successful harvest, and make life on the farm easier than it was for our ancestors. Take this quiz to prove you can tell a combine from a cultivator, or a pitchfork from a pickup truck!
