Hay & Straw Production

A good percentage of our hay crop is forward contracted each year with long-time valued customers. We do still usually have a large amount of hay for sale though.

We raise alfalfa and alfalfa grass mix. We bale in large rounds and are firm believers in allowing our hay to dry down completely. We bale on the dew because we feel that this minimizes spoilage and ensures leaf retention.

We have a conventional combine, which ensures we are able to produce quality barley straw. This also is baled in large round bales. 

Feel free to contact us at any time about your hay or straw needs.
