 Hi Guys

First welcome to TP.
Second read your manual. Then at the tractor read it again being sure you can relate to each control it mentions.

Then get to work, err have fun, wait you can do both at the same time.

 Hi Guys

I will read the manual for sure (this don't classify as reading the directions, it is merely to inform users of the features of their product).

Thanks for the welcome.

Since I like to write I would guess that you will hear a lot about it.

 Hi Guys

This will be my first ever NEW tractor. I own a ford 3000 Diesel, 8N, and a MF backhoe currently. My father in law has 140, super A that we all use interchangeably. Gotta love the old 140's.

My newest tractor is the ford 3000 (late 60's model) no PowerSteering (PS). Never had a PS on a tractor before.

The wife, father in law and I are beginning a upick farm, in central NC (near Raleigh). The farm had been used for tobacco for years. We decided to make this drastic change to the orchard last year. With the bulk of the trees/vines and bushes being planted this year.

I really like the 3000 it is a strong pulling tractor. I am hoping the dk40 can handle its implements ok. From what I hear I can take 10hp off the tractor by adding 4wd. I really wanted a powerful tractor that is small enough to fit in between the rows of grapes that I have.

I won't get rid of the 3000 just yet, but hope to sell it at some point.

 Hi Guys

Well hate to say it but you will loose the Kioto tractor..as soon as the FIL or wife uses it...its gone!

Sure wish had a magazine tossed recently about what you are doing. This is the insurance agent in me coming out and also having raised some produce myself. Get good liability insurance. You will want at least $500,000 if not a million in coverage. Be sure it covers people getting hurt on your property and the produce if it makes them sick. Find out from someone what records you need to keep on the chemicals you use, when you applied them and the rates and such. Then pray you never need any of that.

Hope the U-pick works well for you. Thirty years or so ago tried it a few miles south (about 20 west of Myrtle Beach) of you and learned my first name was "U". Also think that was when I quit eating butter beans looking back. It was a part time venture that quickly prove that field corn and soybeans were more my likening.

Am not trying to discourage on the u-pick. Berries here really work well here. Vegetables not as much. But you have a population that is so much greater than ours and they are not on vacation, golf course or retired. Grapes have gotten a lot of attention here from ex tobacco farmers. Not sure how well they are doing but some invested very heavy in them.
Hope you well.

 Hi Guys

Thanks for the info on the insurance. I have been probing to find out what it costs etc. For the first year or two we are trying organic. So chemicals are minimal. I will keep good records just in case I put to many praying mantis's on the area. Smile The area is about 5 miles from a town of about 4k people and 8-10 miles from the capital city, closer if you count where they have annexed).

I am looking to use it for some retirement income in about 10-15 years when I will begin thinking about that phase of life.

 Hi Guys

No idea if same will be true in NC as in SC but here Farm Bureau is the lowest price you will find on farm insurance. Here they require your home first or some other line to go with it. My guess $600 per year with them and in a full blown commercial policy from anyone else about 2 to 3 times that much. Also a good source of insurance on your new tractor if you want or need it. Now that is now with U-pick on the land, no idea how much that will affect it. Animals would also affect it. NO I AM and never have been FM agent and compete with them often on other lines but not their farm coverage.

A thought and you need to be careful with it. Is this land on the same land as your house? If so your homeowners company may not keep you insured if they find out about the farm operation. But if not on the same deed as your house first place to ask is there.

 Hi Guys

This land will be divided into two tracts the house on one and the farm on the other. This is currently my father in laws land. He is to make this over to us end of next year. His house is on the property as is. The split may not happen but that is the plan for now. He intends to give that (house) to his grandson at some point.

On a further note, there was a glitch in placing the order for the dk40. Seems they had some issues at the factory with their computers that the dealer couldn't place the order until today (a 3 day delay). I say all that to say this, the dealer had the DK45SE in stock with a loader already on it. It was the model I had test driven. So, I opted to get that one for an extra grand. I pick it up this am. I am renting an excavator tomorrow and feel I needed the loader to help clean the dirt away when it was here.

Thanks for the input. I am all ears. I am planning to call our local college (NCSU) who specializes in ag and get some feedback from them on various things. One of which is what grass should I plant? I want something low growing that is traffic resistant and the roots don't abuse the soil of nutrients. So much to learn... That is what life is though a life long learning event.... I love it...
