Fuel your farm shop fixup ideas
Machinery Director Dave Mowitz visits a lot of farm shops and chats with a lot of farmers when he's out shooting "Top Shops" segments for the Successful Farming Machinery Show. "While shooting . . . we asked shop owners, 'What would you have done differently with your shop?'" he says. Find out a few of the answers to that question and how some farmers are putting their answers into action on their farms.
The most common response to Mowitz's question is, "Build a bigger building in the first place." Farmer innovators have created expansions or additions to existing shops, as well as refurbished former buildings (often livestock structures) to serve a new role as shop headquarters.
