I am writing to you to express my deep satisfaction regarding my business to date with your organization. This will be a bit long but I thought it was of value to describe how this all happened and that my business with you wasn’t simply an exchange of money and equipment. Not to sound too corny but it was the fulfillment of a dream of mine.
I grew up on my Grandparents farm and I’ve always held a deep affinity for the land and growing things. I’ll never forget my Grandparents garden. It was huge! He had a very small cultivator (about 6 feet wide) and he would keep the weeds down by running that between the rows. Six feet between rows… that’s how big the garden was. My life’s journey, however, took me into the U.S. Navy, electronics, etc. and so for many years, I’ve held a dream to one day get back to the land. My wife and I had been doing small backyard gardens for some years but wasn’t quite making the dream. Recently, we purchased 4 acres along the Brazos River where we built our retirement home. We fenced off a garden area (for deer) and made plans to get some equipment to build and maintain my garden.
I did a ton of research on small tractors, tillers, plows, etc. I was nearly certain that I would acquire a small 4-wheel tractor and a few implements with it. It was nearly an accident finding BCS tractors. At first glance, it looked like many other roto-tillers. Fortunately, for me, I dug into this and my research convinced me that this was no simple roto-tiller. It was truly a tractor with greater agility and utility than a larger 4 wheeler. For me, it was the perfect way to go. Every review and comment was always positive if not glowing. Many people had been using BCS tractors for decades. So, this decision led me to you and Homestead Maintenance.
My garden isn’t huge but it fits our needs nicely. Basically, it’s about 2400 sq. ft. in size. Five rows each about 40 feet long. I ended up selecting three pieces of equipment.
1. BCS 853 Tractor
2. Swivel Rotary Plow
3. Precision Depth Roller
All of my communications with you, your family, and employees were timely, enlightening, and patient. Taking advantage of a winter sale I purchased the equipment last December. So far my use of the equipment has been marvelous. I even helped a neighbor create raised beds. Easy peasy!
As you know I came back and purchased the chipper/shredder implement. This thing is a BEAST! It’s already created about $50 worth of mulch! In the end, all said and done you did what you said you would do, exceeded expectations, and I’m very happy with our business together. Those traits and experiences are typically sadly rare and I truly appreciate everything you’ve done.
