Organizing the Equipment Barn in the New Year

No better time like the start of a new year to get everything around the farm in good order.

Whenever it is stormy outside and my outdoor grounds crew is unable to work in the woods or gardens, I encourage them to take stock of the equipment, clean everything, and then organize all the tools and supplies. My large Equipment Barn is about 40 by 120 feet, with a substantial amount of height. It is where we store mowers, blowers, tractors, tools, and other pieces of important machinery. Not long ago, we cleared the space, swept the floor and inspected every item before returning it neatly to its spot, so everything is organized and ready for use. Keeping everything well maintained and properly stored will always save time in the long run.
