Dad is really good about doing his research before buying new things, so we asked him to research tractors and find out which one was the best tractor for our farm. All we knew is that we wanted a Kubota, and in the end we bought a brand new M5640 tractor with an LA1002 bucket from Avenue Machinery in Vernon, BC.
Peter, Anna, and I aren't just siblings now - we're partners too! We made our first major farm purchase together on March 19, 2013, buying a brand new Kubota tractor.
It was a really good price because Kubota is phasing this model of tractor out. In addition, this tractor was made in late 2009 and sat in Avenue Machinery's lot for the past three years, where they put 61 kilometers on it.
Peter, Anna, and I are so happy that we saved our paychecks from the past year and could buy this tractor for our farm. I think that the family is pretty pleased with the new tractor too. :)
I love to share stories and tips from living on my farm in Enderby where I raise Jersey cows and Nubian goats and make cheese. I work part time at the Enderby Museum, and enjoy reffing minor hockey, teaching cheese making workshops, and reading. Click here to read my bio.
