In the first couple of years, the care farm used the old Kubota tractor that belonged to the farm.  All the care farmers learned how to drive it and loved it.  Even though it was old and tricky with the gears, they all managed it with a little practice out in the big field.  We were fortunate enough to receive a large grant from the Big Lottery which, together with a grant from Comic Relief and some local charities and Kubota UK, allowed us to buy a lovely new Kubota along with a trailer, muck fork and roller.  It is much easier to drive than the old tractor and the care farmers love it!
