About Our Equipment

The Kress Finger Weeder provides a powerful weapon in the unending fight against weeds determined to ruin the yield you worked so hard for. It’s a tool conceived from a simple concept for use with a multitude of crop types. Use it in orchards, vegetable farms, and vineyards. The delicacy of the Finger Weeder ensures that no damage is done to any of your produce.

The materials used to construct our finger weeders give them a durable yet flexible tension. This lets stems remain unbroken while allowing the weeder to deal with stone, sand, and other difficult soil elements. We’ve made them available in a variety of shapes and colors.

Kress Finger Weeders suppress weeds and improve water retention with little soil disturbance. You save yourself a ton of manual labor in a variety of ways.

Make farm weeding even easier by using the autopilot feature available with our cultivating tools. This system combines computer, camera, and hydraulic cylinder technologies to give our cultivators the ability to precisely steer the equipment among the rows of your crops. This lets equipment get closer to plants than you could with manual steering.

Sam Hitchcock Tilton

Sam grew up in Wisconsin. After studying philosophy and math in college he worked on horse and tractor-powered vegetable farms in Wisconsin before starting his own vegetable farm. For a while he was publisher and editor of the Fresh Coast Grower’s Bulletin, a monthly magazine for Wisconsin vegetable growers. Sam is passionate about farming and writing, and has visited vegetable farmers all over the country and the world and written about them in Vegetable Grower’s News and Growing For Market Magazine.
In 2015 he moved to Lansing, Michigan to join the Michigan State University Department of Horticulture as a graduate student. For his work there he focused on precision cultivation tools, specifically tools that weed in the crop row. For this work he conducted field trials comparing many in-row tools and spoke with farmers all over the Midwest about their experience with cultivation. Sam also went on a research trip to France, Switzerland, and the Netherlands to meet with farmers and tool manufacturers to learn their tools and techniques to share with American growers. Sam helps to organize the annual Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day, bringing together growers and cultivation tool companies from all over the country.

Sam has spoken at conferences around the country, sharing what he has learned about mechanical weed control and his passion for vegetable growing and weeding tools.
