Kitchen drain at hold farm house

My kitchen sink and washer drains out to the back of my yard. (the bathroom drains to the septic tank).
When I had some trees removed, apparently the weight of the tractor cracked the drain line (it is the old red tile type of drain) and was not buried very deep AND the soil is very soft.
Can I just start where is was cracked and install some flexible drain tubing? If so, does anyone recommend a certain type / size. Thanks for any comments.

Drain

Now would be a good time to dig up the old drain pipe and replace it with 4 in. PVC at a suitable depth to avoid damage. If you have far to go, rent a trencher.

Kitchen drain at old farm house

That's what I will probably due, eventually. I was thinking about just extending it now about the 6 or 7 feet to get it out of my back yard.

If the original line was run solid and with fall on it you have to replace it close to the way it was. I don't think you can change the depth of that line if it is draining into your septic field; you just need to keep people from riding on it.
