Hey there, everyone. We are new to farming and have been given access to some land this season through the Seattle Tilth Farm Works program. The downside is that the land is rock-ridden. We've had the soil tilled up and have removed all the larger rocks on the surface now by hand. We are working 1/2 acre and there are 14 other 1/4 acre plots worked by other beginning farmers with this program.
I'm wondering if anyone has plans or ideas for a way that we might be able to get these rocks out of the soil more effectively. We do have access to a small tractor but the only equipment we currently have for it are a tiller, a disker, and a shovel on the front.
I'm open to building something but I'm not very engineering minded and, as with most of us young/beginning farmers, money is tight.
If anyone has any ideas though, please let me know!
