well i have to say a ford 4000 series is afordable and powerful it can do all you have listed and more. but you may find that 2 or three tractors is handy. i raise livestock and have a hay buisness and grow a few crops. my ford 4000 was my only tractor in the beginning and it has run 6 and 7 foot brush mowers and 6 and 7 ft box scrapers, 8 ft rear blade. as to your food plots i pull a 3 bottom plow and a 9 ft wheel disc, its baled hay its done it all and parts a inexpensive and sold everywhere. as time went on i grew into bigger and bigger stuff now i have a oliver 1850 94hp with a cab and it can handle 12-15ft brush mowers and big discs and plows. but i use it for tillage and bailing round bails. if your not really planning on farming the property then i think a ford 4000-5000 series tractor or a IH 574 or 584, MF 165 or 265 a john deere 3020 or a 2030 or 2440 any late 60s and 70s 50-60hp utility will handle your needs and run 4k-8k you will never regret a loader, its also cheaper to buy a tractor with loader than to add one later. but if you do need a big tractor you can get allis 190xt, oliver 1850, IH 806 all for 5k-7k and all are 90+ hp tractors. let us know what you get and post pics. :)
