Hello, I am excited to introduce myself and join in the fun.
My husband and I live on a hobby farm in central Michigan. Today we bought a 1953 Cub. I am hoping to be able to get the tools I need to do my garden work and also some light haying jobs and hauling around our place. I have begun to live the dream that I have held for some fifty years... my own farm!
I am sure that there are plenty of mistakes to be made, but the hope is that I will learn from them. Please excuse my stupid questions, my grandparents were farmers, but my parents not. So I am starting from the beginning. I do have some experience with gardening and some livestock, but using tractors and such is still very new. We started doing our own hay three years ago with our MF 165 and have done okay so far. The Cub will be my baby so I have alot to learn.
Looking forward to learning from those in the know.

Welcome Rainelle, the folks here will give you all the help you need. I think you'll find that farming with your Cub will be an enormously enjoyable time.
I don't believe in taking the bull by the horns. I took a goat by the horns once and that was enough excitement for me.

Welcome, you have found the best site for good advice from people who you will soon be calling your friends. I have the utmost respect for these folks. I live in The Shenandoah valley of Virginia.
I seem to know more and more about less and less, soon I'll know everything about nothing !
Welcome, from the bottom of the mitten!! You'll find the Cub very economic to run and repair if needed. You can get the best advice and help from the members here. How big is your farm and what kind of farming are you planning to do.
I too have a '53 and love it. If you are going to use the tractor for farming, a fast hitch sure will make changing implements quick and easy, more so that the standard hitch. Just an option if you haven't purchased implements yet.

Congrats on acquiring your very first Cub. I am sure you will fall in love with it and may not be able to resist acquiring siblings Cubs are really useful in truck garden farms and such. The information you will need on the various implements is available on Cub Manual Server. Enjoy browsing and then of course the hunt
