If you have a farmer in your life, you know they go through clothes quicker than you can blink. With all the dirt, grime, machinery, and everyday mishaps that occur, it’s critical that your farmer has some high-quality, durable clothing. This year, we recommend looking into a new wardrobe for the special farmer(s) in your life. While it’s not all that exciting, it’s definitely necessary.
We recommend some heavy-duty pants, some steel-toed work boots, a warm jacket, and some protective gloves. Farming is hard work and it requires lots of elbow grease, so you should look for clothes that are meant to take a beating. Consider tear-proof clothing or clothing made with materials that are waterproof and easy to wash. You want something that can quickly be thrown in the wash and come out looking like-new. While it can be tempting to purchase old, cheap clothing, we recommend against it, as better quality clothing is not only built-to-last, but it also helps to protect your farmer.
Tool Storage Bag
Farming requires many tools, large and small, and properly storing them is critical to maintaining them and keeping them in good shape. Depending on the type of farming your loved one does, you may want to look for a smaller bag, or you might need a large storage area that can store lots of tools at once.
An LED Flashlight or Two
When you have a farm full of animals, duty calls at all hours of the night, so having a good flashlight is critical. We recommend looking into larger, long-range LED flashlights with a high runtime for at least one of the flashlights. We also recommend looking for smaller flashlights that can be used on-the-go, in case of an emergency.
LED flashlights, as opposed to incandescent, use significantly less power, yet are much brighter. Additionally, the bulbs tend to last much longer in LED lights than any other type of flashlight. When searching for the perfect flashlight, keep in mind that brightness is measured in lumens, so the greater the number, the brighter the flashlight.
You should also consider battery types when searching for the perfect light for your lovely farmer. Will it be easy to access spare batteries when needed? AA and AAA batteries are typically easy to find and tend to last a while when used in LED flashlights.
With all the heavy machinery needed in farming, wearing eye protection is absolutely critical. Eye injuries are painful, expensive, and can be absolutely devastating. Simple precautions, such as wearing high-quality safety glasses, can help prevent them!
Because most injuries result from flying particles, it’s important to search for eyewear that provides protection from every angle. Proper safety frames have grooves into which the safety glasses fit, which helps prevent the lenses from popping either forward or backward into the eye.
You can usually find safety glasses with detachable side shields that help provide protection from above, below, and around.
Farming can be tedious work, so why not spice it up with some music or a podcast? For a more exciting gift this holiday, we recommend looking into a nice pair of wireless headphones! This way, your farmer can enjoy their favorite tunes while getting the job done, yet they won’t have to worry about cords getting tangled into machinery, which could be very dangerous.
There are lots of options when it comes to wireless headphones, including over-the-head and earbuds. If your farmer needs a way to easily remove them while working, earbuds might be best.
We may be biased, but we feel like the best possible gift to get your favorite farmer this holiday is tillage tools! Our team of experts here at Richmond Brothers Equipment is here to provide you with some direction on which farm tools and equipment are sure to make the best impression this year! Below you’ll find some of our favorite options.
