We are shutting down the farm business for the foreseeable future and are selling most of the farm equipment and supplies. Some prices are firm, but may be negotiable especially if you are interested in purchasing a large number of items (and if you are in the process of starting a small farm and would like to buy all of it, let’s chat). Links to comparable items have been included where possible. If you would like pictures or more details about something, just ask. All items are located at our farm in Quinton, VA. This list will be updated as items sell, so if it is not crossed off it is still available.

- Plastic Mulch Layer. Works with 4′ or 5′ rolls of plastic mulch. This model does not raise and shape the bed as you pull it, so it requires less horsepower, easily pulled this behind a 25hp tractor. Little bit of chipping paint and have always had trouble keeping air in tires between uses, but never any trouble while using it in the field, and it functions perfectly. Currently set up to lay a single line of drip-tape under the plastic mulch. From Nolt’s in PA. $900
- 8’Lx8’Wx10’H Walk-in Cooler. Kolpak brand. This was originally a walk-in freezer in a restaurant. It has been fit with a coolbot controller and the recommended brand and size of AC unit for the cooler volume. Works great, only used in its current set up for part of one season. It is currently set up on a gravel pad under a carport. The walls and floor break down for transport, and I would highly recommend a small u-haul or box truck to transport the pieces because of how tall this unit is. There are a few dings and stains, but is otherwise in nice shape. Has all pieces except the aluminum lining from one half of the insulated floor. We just put down some extra insulation and heavy-duty plywood to make a level floor. Comes with 2 sturdy metal restaurant-style wheeled shelving units. Also have the original fans/compressor/condenser units if you would like them. $5500

- Capilary Bench Matting. Felt, for greenhouse use. Most of a 4×100′ roll ($125 new) $60

Also have block tweezers for moving blocks, and a Tenax pro-seeder for precise seeding of tiny seeds. $90 for everything.

- Irrigation set-up. Blue layflat, many layflat to drip-tape valves. There are some holes that need mending and probably a few broken valves, but purchased new this would represent a serious chunk of change. 2 distinct sections used to cover over 350′ feet. Valves are spaced roughly 5 feet apart. Includes 2 large ball valves, some end caps, connectors and t-shaped pieces, a few goof plugs, lots of hose clamps, a pressure gauge, 2 different in-line pressure control valves, a filter, and at least 50 layflat to drip-tape valves that can be individually turned on and off.
