Do you have a chemical sprayer? If so, have you considered liquid lime?

Check around with surrounding counties soil conservation departments to see if they have any buggies you can rent. Our county has a 5 ton Chandler they will rent for $80 a day.

Wow I just had a couple hundred tons spread and it cost around $18 a ton. The quarry is within 15 miles and KY is very karst, though.
