I just picked up a pair of self propelled tillers today and turned them loose on a patch of grass behind my barn that I don't want to mow anymore. I was running chickens on it, but they were not keeping it knocked down. This area will be part of the garden next year, the tillers will be in the freezer in the late fall.

Maybe if you bury the food, they'll till more up!

Trust me on this Kenny, they need no encouragement to till. Last years pigs had about 3 or 4 craters dug big enough to lose a GT in.

I ran the plow over everything this spring and it evened it out not too bad, though I did get stuck a time or two. I haven't hit all of it with the tiller yet, but I did go over the worst hole and you wouldn't even know it was there now. I had issues with my regular butcher and ended up keeping the pigs a lot longer than usual. Most years the worst holes are only a foot deep or so.
