2020 Amazon Prime Day deals for farmers and rural residents

Published:

Delayed from it’s normal date in July, due to the pandemic, Amazon has kicked off its annual Prime Day sale event today, Oct. 13, and will continue it into Wednesday, Oct. 14. 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.

This shopping holiday has grown year after year, and for good reason: You can expect discounts on more than 1 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.

Now that Prime Day has arrived, we’re highlighting some of the best Prime Day deals that are perfect for farmers, ranchers, and all of us who live and breathe country life! 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 on Oct. 13 and 14! We’ll be updating this list throughout these two days as we hear about more and more great deals that fit your rural lifestyle!

Here are some of the goodies on Amazon that you should consider scooping up during the Prime Day event!

Of course, there’s no denying that we scope out Amazon often throughout the year, and some products like the ones below are not on sale for Prime Day, but we love them anyway! 🙂 Also, if you want to pore over some more sales right now, you can also 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.


 

agriculture degree mug

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 Workwear

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.
