The humble garden cart gets my vote for the most indispensable piece of equipment on the farm. We bought one of the Vermont Carts new and picked up another at an auction. They are the best money ever spent on the farm. We’ve had one ten years and it is still works as well as the day we put it together. It is sturdy, very easy to push, fits through gates easily, tips, and can haul hundreds of pounds if need be.
Now there is an alternative – the guy who brought the world the whiz-band chicken plucker has published plans to make your own cart.
