We got this huge load of fencing recently for about half the price of new, used off of Craigslist. This will end up enclosing a significant amount of the vegetable field you see in the background. By April that fencing will be in place and ready to keep the deer and coons out.
Restaurant auctions are great, too. Usually we can get sets of food-service-grade lidded containers for packing and storing product, and at the last one we scored an excellent stainless-steel prep table with built-in sink that will be used for poultry butchering. Again, far below used and with no added impacts.
