A horse drawn plough, it can be drawn (pulled) by almost any 4 legged animal, or multiples of the two legged type.
Plus a seed machine, unless you want to scatter the seed by hand, seed being wheat, rye, corn, etc. digging using a spade is more tiring than
using a plough, someone else does the work!
An acre is judged to provide enough food for one year for 5 people, an acre being 220 yards by 220 yards (a square)
Two horses can plough one acre in one day with a single shire plough. Oxen were once used for ploughing, but I don't know the figures for oxen.
