I have been searching the archives, and only found lots of questions about the Pioneer Homesteader in the first year or two after it was developed. For those that purchased it, what do you think now? Is it worth it?
I’ve read that success seems to be based on your terrain and conditions. We are considering purchasing one to use in a small (less than 2 acres) market garden and possibly a small (1-2 acres) grain field. We live on heavy clay, Virgin, Unworked soil. That being said, we won’t be plowing much in our soil, but we do like to attend plow days in nearby fields of well-worked black soil. On our property, we would be using more of the cultivator on compost amended soils, the potato digger, discer, and hiller. The concept seems to fit our needs perfectly, but the question is....what is the reality?
