Farm Shop Design Series

July 1, 2021

Farm shops have evolved in a similar fashion to farms. As the average farm size and complexity has increased dramatically over the last 50 years, so has the farm shop. A farm shop was once only a corner in a small outbuilding used to store a few tools. Then as machinery storage buildings became popular, the farm shop became an area that was designated by a concrete floor and a workbench. As repair cost and equipment size increased, more and more machinery area was taken up as the repair area, that is, the shop.

Today’s farmer/businessman knows that a farm shop is an essential tool needed to assure the continued success of the operation. This blog series, written by Dan Nyberg, the Sales Training Manager at Morton Buildings, focuses on a variety of farm shop design ideas to help you in planning your next agricultural building.
