The farm business is in its sixth season and has been successful,in part, due to the use of many essential pieces of equipment and tools. A propagation house for seedlings starts the vegetable production system, an extensive irrigation system helps young plants along and assures germination for directly seeded crops, and several tractors are used for tillage and cultivation. In addition, the farmers use a wide array of hand tools for many purposes.
