The Wisconsin School for Beginning Market Growers, led by John Hendrickson program manager for CIAS at UW Madison, is a program that serves beginning farmers who want to grow and market fresh produce. This publication outlines a understanding of basic terms and issues for tractors on a small market farm. Tractor Primer for the Market Farm emphasizes other important purchases such as walk-in coolers to consider establishing before tractor purchase as well as considerations such as scale of farming operation, features of the tractor in question, used vs. new tractors, and tillage tools. A glossary of terms is provided at the end.
