Golf Cart: Best Farm Vehicle

We started our farm adventure with an old four wheel drive pickup truck. It was hard to drive, got stuck a lot, and finally gave up the ghost. Then Mark had the great idea to get an electric golf cart, which we found to be surprisingly utilitarian on the farm, hauling people and supplies with ease.
