Black Friday is just another work day on the farm — livestock doesn’t stop eating and machines won’t winterize themselves. But we also don’t want you to miss out. Everyone in 2022 is taking advantage of shopping deals the day after Thanksgiving, whether it’s to fill a Christmas stocking or simply to replace some much-needed items for the shelves in your workshop. These are the kinds of Black Friday deals for farmers and rural residents that we should pay attention to.
Amazon is no doubt a giant when it comes to shopping, and because many of us likely live at least 30 minutes from Walmart or Target or anything bigger than a Dollar General, we often look to the online retailer to find what we need. And, yes, Amazon goes big on Black Friday!
The online retail giant has released major deals. And now that they’ve done so, we hope our list gives you a chance to get a jump on some of your shopping — and don’t leave out the awesome Prime membership with two-day shipping! This will be a rough year if you decide to wait until the last minute to do your shopping — supply chain issues have been bogging us down since the pandemic started two and a half years ago, and this season, many of the most-desired items for the holidays simply won’t be available if you don’t act quickly.
We’ll be working to keep everything up to date to the best of our abilities and adding new items as cool deal items show up! If you want to jump directly to Amazon’s Black Friday deals page, click this link, but out of the thousands of items on sale, here are 13 things that caught our eye for the Black Friday deals on Amazon’s website:

Of course, not everything we love is on sale for the Black Friday holiday. Here are some of the cool gift ideas we’d like to see a discount on!
Do Not Confuse Your Google Search With My Agriculture Degree Stainless Steel Mug
This is our new go-to coffee mug! Who among us isn’t tired of the army of “keyboard farmers” on social media? This travel mug sums things up nicely, and is a perfect gift for anyone heading off to college or who has wrapped up their ag education. Just a heads up, though, this isn’t part of Amazon Prime, so expect delivery to take longer than a couple of days.
Carhartt Men’s Rugged Flex Rigby Double Front Pant
This is one of Carhartt’s newest items, and we’ve been testing it out for the past few weeks. Absolutely love it! It’s darn-near replaced most of our other farm pants. They sport a mid-weight canvas blend, which isn’t too hot in the warmer months, with the perfect amount of stretch for easy movement. And they’ve got all the traditional jean pockets — plus a secure right thigh phone pocket and a left thigh utility pocket for your knife.
Dovetail Freshley Overall in Black Stretch Denim
These are not repurposed, boxy men’s overalls. They’re intentionally designed to complement a woman’s frame, without sacrificing the functionality of men’s overalls. There are deep pockets galore. Accessible — and functional — pockets! There’s even one on the breast of the overalls. A large cellphone (Samsung Note 8) fits securely in nearly every one of the pockets. There’s plenty of room to accommodate its size, and the stretch in the denim keeps it from flopping around. There’s a zippered pocket on the rear leg that’s great for holding valuables such as keys, your ID, and credit cards.
The Freshley has a slightly stretchy fabric — the overalls move with your body: while stacking hay, trimming my goats’ hooves, whatever — and yet the reinforced knee panels mean the fabric stays strong despite the abuse of farm or construction work.
Some super cool features: There’s a small round hole in the front bib pocket, perfect for earbuds cord or even some twine. Not to be outdone — there’s also a secret zipper in that pocket on the side.
