    Cool stuff! Thanks. We have about 3-4 acres of "lawn" that's really mostly weeds. The rest of the property is either wooded, a pond or pasture that we're converting to garden.
    T3 complete since Sept 2015.

    Easy with Grazon HL! The Piclorem(Tordon 22K) in it is death to trees! With a looooong residual to any broadleaf.

    This is possibly the best tractor for your needs. 4wd, articulated steering, hydrostatic, HAND CONTROL, and a lot of optional attachments.

    I would strongly recommend that you avoid the use of herbicides! Grazon (made by Dow Chemical) is a different chemical than Round-Up, but both have come under a ban in European countries due to suspicions about toxicity, including cancer risk. According to NuTurf Australia, Grazon is a hazardous chemical that acts as a skin, eye and respiratory irritant. It can cause damage to the lungs if swallowed and may cause pain and irritation on skin contact. Also, if you have any intention of selling your produce as organically grown, you cannot use Grazon (or Round-Up) on your land.

    My oldest son will run the farmish stuff and is dead set against any herbicides. His plan is to turn and then solarize the planting areas, so we won't actually have much to harvest in 2020 as he prepares the soil. Pest control is mostly chickens and/or baby turkeys as both are rather prolific bug eaters.

    Cutting grass can suck up a lot of time, although some people enjoy it. If you have good soil, planting is always preferred. You can also rent land to local farmers. Regardless, if you have 3-5 acres of grass, you'll want professional equipment which is quite expensive.
