bore or drill a well?

We need to "dig" a well on a farm to be use for a home and spray tank filling, no livestock.  The question is should I have a well bored or drilled?  A bored well is a 30" bore that will need to go down 50 to 150 feet.  A drilled well will be a bore of 6" and may go down 600+ feet in our area.  The bored well would be cheaper but may vary   with the water table.  Anyone have some experience in this matter?
