Amish Farm Tools Redesigned for Use on African Farms

What a great idea being presented on Michigan Radio about redesigns of Amish farm equipment for African countries ! The Amish certainly still make use of hand equipment and horse powered farm implements so their knowledge and manufacturing would be a wonderful asset to tap into. Here's a quote from the article: 

"Many of the tools Tillers looks to as models are still produced by Amish manufacturers. According to Kline, these tools still work well and they are also very sustainable." 

This is insight that can be quite relevant to countries where a simpler way to farm is essential to life. It's a win-win collaboration. Be sure to listen to the radio podcast included at the top of the article for more information.
