Some shipping containers have pesticide-treated floors.  If you're an organic farmer, this may contaminate your equipment, etc.  The newer "eco" containers may be a better choice than the older, cheaper treated ones.

Best wishes to all,

Our farm is small, we have a small 1964 IH tractor, 2 plows, plastic mulch layer, mowers, tiller, hoes, wheelbarrows, wagons, harvesting containers and on and on as well as all the household goods.

The new property does not have any barns or outbuildings (other than a large high tunnel greenhouse, oh boy oh boy), so I was thinking of buying a shipping container and arranging for someone to haul it.  Any other ideas?
