For those of us who live well outside the city limits, having access to Amazon’s speedy delivery service is a wonderful perk of the modern world. My family has had a Prime membership for several years now, which means free shipping and two-day delivery on most anything we could want. It saves us time and money in the long run. So whenever the annual Prime Day deals roll around (think Black Friday-like discounts, but going on right now!), it’s habit to start scouring the list for things that are great fits for farmers and others of us who love rural life. We do our best to pull together the best Amazon Prime Day deals for farmers and other rural residents.
This shopping holiday has grown year after year, and for good reason: You can expect discounts on more than 2 million products, including many that fit perfectly into rural and farm lifestyles. If you don’t have a Amazon Prime membership, you can get one here.
Usually this sale event takes place in July, but this year’s event is June 21 and 22 (yes, Prime “Day” is actually a two-day event!), Amazon’s earliest ever. This comes after 2020’s Prime Day, which was held in October and was the latest ever due to the pandemic.
Just like last year, Amazon is offering a way for shoppers to get a $10 credit: Prime members who spend $10 on items sold by more than 300,000 small and medium sellers prior to Prime Day will get $10 bonus to use on Prime Day itself. The number of eligible sellers is more than double last year’s total, so the opportunity is greater.
Now that Prime Day has arrived, we’re highlighting some of the best Prime Day deals. Because Amazon will be rolling out some of its deals gradually (and other deals called Lighting Deals are only available for a small time frame), not all of the event’s deals are in place immediately. Be sure to check back to this page often!
Here are our picks for the best 2021 Amazon Prime Day deals for farmers, ranchers, and anyone else in rural communities (deals are subject to change):
Up to 50% off — Everything Levi’s
The Levi’s brand name has been a go-to for decades for farmers. And true to form, Levi’s still makes a great-fitting and durable pair of blue jeans, especially with some of their Regular-Fit jeans, which are 50 percent off right now for Prime Day! Other styles, including Original Fit and women’s shorts, as well as accessories like wallets, bandannas, and belts are mostly in the 30 percent to 40 percent off range. That’s still a great deal for these kinds of staple clothing items, which we’ve noticed has gotten more and more expensive over the years.

Their whole page is filled with discounts, as you can see here. The 20V MAX Lithium Ion Compact Drill/Driver Kit is lightweight and compact for working in tight spaces for long periods of time.

This profile gauge creates an instant template for curved and odd shaped profiles simply and easily. Never transfer profiles to paper or cardboard again.

20% off — Rechargeable Handheld LED Searchlight
When the cows get out in the middle of the night, what’s one of the things you reach for? Yeah, you’re likely going to need a good (and powerful!) flashlight, and at 6,100 lumens, this handheld searchlight will do the trick. Plus it doesn’t shy away from rain or other hazardous weather conditions. It also has impact-resistant ABS and rubber waterproof plug to protect the system from scratches, drops, bumps, and splashes. The spotlight is made with a long-lasting, rechargeable 4.3 volt 18650 Lithium-Ion battery with large capacity (9600 mAh),lasting 50% longer than any other last generation spotlights.
21% off — HANDLANDY Utility Work Gloves for Women
We’ve highlighted our picks for the best women’s work gloves, and these had made our list. Now that they’re on sale for Prime Day, all the better! These work gloves are fit especially for women — no more extra material in the fingers like when we have to wear men’s gloves. With three touch screen compatible fingers, these gloves give women who work with technology and with their hands the ease of not having to take off the gloves during the work day.
30% off — Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 10.4-inch 32GB
There’s no question that our farms are becoming more and more connected, even if broadband internet access is slow to reach many rural areas. There are lots of apps that will help you manage your farm and utilize your data to get the best in-field results, not to mention help you troubleshoot any problems you may be having. Or maybe you just want to watch YouTube videos on a quality screen while the combine is harvesting. Samsung has great tablets, and it’s not often you can get them at this kind of discount.
30% off — Jackery Portable Power Station
I don’t know about you, but my rural area isn’t often a priority for the power company after a harsh storm and widespread outages. There just aren’t enough homes near me to make it worthwhile, compared with urban and suburban areas within an hour’s drive. Having a backup battery like this is vital, and to be perfectly frank, this is the first product I’m going to buy for Prime Day (our portable battery died on us a couple of weeks ago). And these kinds of batteries aren’t cheap at full price!
Armed with a 293Wh lithium-ion battery pack, the Explorer 300 features 2 Pure Sine Wave AC outlets that deliver stable and safe 300W power. The portable power station weighs only 7.1 pounds. You can simply rest assured in off-grid activities.
40% off — Fitbit Inspire 2 Fitness Tracker
Yes, yes, we’re well past the whole new year’s resolutions of health and fitness. But it’s not too late to start keeping an eye on your health, and a Fitbit is one of the best ways to do that. From your steps and other activity to keeping a close eye on your sleep patterns, the Inspire 2 is great to get your health on track. Plus, it has 10 days of battery life — it’s hard to argue with that, when you don’t have to worry about charging it all the time!
Lightning Deal 45% off — Magnetic Phone Dashboard Mount
This is one of Amazon’s short-term deals: This phone mount will be on a deep discount from 7:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. PDT on Tuesday. Whenever you’re in the tractor or hitting those bumpy roads to the Back 40, it’s great to have a secure place to attach your phone so you can still see the maps or listen to your favorite farm podcast. This phone mount safely and quickly secure a mobile device to most flat surfaces (except leather, vinyl, and soft surface) with the sticky gel on the base of the suction cup. This phone holder is compatible with all smartphones, and the patented industrial-strength suction cup base provides a strong, secure hold power on the dashboards, windshields, countertops, desks, tables and other surfaces.
Beyond Prime Day
If you didn’t see anything you wanted or needed above for Prime Day, take a peek at these other great items for farmers, ranchers, and other country dwellers. And if you’re really jazzed for deal shopping right now, you can check out what’s being featured on Deals Forum.
Gerber Center-Drive Plus Multi-Tool with Bit Set
Gerber’s Center-Drive Plus is an innovative multitool that has scores of applications around the farm, and we’ve even gotten a chance to play with it some.
New to the Center-Drive Plus are:
- The spring-loaded scissors
- The partially serrated 3.25-inch blade
- The tools are tumble finished for a sleek, polished aesthetic that doesn’t sacrifice performance
- The American made, Berry-compliant full leather sheath has a snap closure to ensure secure stowage as well reliable performance
The purposeful one-thumb opening design remains for quick deployment to the tools you depend on most: the spring-loaded pliers, the full size blade, and the full size, center axis screwdriver. That screwdriver, especially, seems so obvious for a tool like this, but, until now, Gerber says no multi-tool has ever offered such a feature on the center axis with a standard bit.
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.
While the Hickory color (in the pic above) is our fav, these pants are also available in Shadow and Tarmac colors.
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.
