Need grass hay, or know someone who’s in the market? Our first cutting is now complete and we have 4,000 small bales and 300 large bales stored in our barns. Contact us if you need any! We are looking for new customers and can provide local delivery.
All our hay is lab-tested, so we know the sugar, nutrient and fiber content of each batch. We can provide both low-sugar and regular grass hay in both large and small bales. Low-sugar hay is recommended by veterinarians for horses with Cushing’s Disease.
Our process starts long before the harvest, when we fertilize the fields with manure from our farm during the winter. The hay is all native grass, so we do not plant seeds.
Then, in late May (or in early June if we get a cool spring like this one), we begin harvesting our 200 acres. We work with 20-40 acres at a time because we need three consecutive clear, dry days in order to bale and field-dry the hay. By mid-July, the first cutting is complete.
Then it’s time for the second cutting. Because second-cutting grass is shorter, the hay is richer and softer.
From late spring to early fall, we can count on being busy cutting. Our sons Josh, Tyler and Kevin all own several pieces of hay-making equipment and especially enjoy this fieldwork.
