We saw the catalogue cover and were drawn to it like a moth to flame. While staring at page after page of farm equipment may not be your cup of tea, we have found Farm Tek to be unbeaten for their low prices on garden hoses, watering towers, work gloves and, of course, large clear span poly buildings, which have nothing whatsoever to do with living in a small space....except getting this catalogue is like getting raunchy, low rent gardening pornography, as you can spend hours staring at oversized prefab buildings that only cost a few hundred dollars or huge, cheap agricultural fans that are used to aireate and spray water on chickens.
We have found that for many common gardening needs Farm Tek is a great resource. For example a 75' coil hose at Farm Tek costs $23, while at Smith and Hawken it costs $70. And for DIY'ers with a little room in the country or in a loft, it offers a vast, inexpensive hardware store for solving your own problems with low prices and same day delivery on: deer fencing, chicken wire, weed matting, tools, wire, rope, strapping and latches, shade structures, tarps, lightbulbs, agricultural light fixtures and more.
