Ya the truth is don’t want to raise 10 boys either, but if I was making a living off the land, needed to get crops in, hay the barn, build the barn, build a dam, dig a well, or the 2 holder. I would like free labours to help. As you know, all those rock walls were made from rocks in the fields. Horse drawn equipment can’t handle hitting those rocks and the plow shears were expensive. In fact replacing them after shtf will be difficult. Building a smelter for casting iron might be a good idea.
Back to your original idea of the post; I would buy the best non motorized tools for gardening-farming I could afford. Horse drawn if I had the space.
