Need hay? The main field is gorgeous and ready to harvest. Now we just need a break in the weather for a few days to cut, cure, and bale.

Rather than adjusting our prices monthly to the national hay exchange average (currently $8.54), this year we are going to try to keep pricing consistent to take some of the guesswork out of your buying.

For the 2013 hay season, our hay is $7.00 per bale unless otherwise posted.

We know this will help us keep order prices straight, and hope it helps you too as we enter another year with limited national hay supplies and high average prices.

Today we started our first harvest of the year, cutting field #2. This alfalfa and orchard field was planted last year and is completely chemical free — and looks great!

The alfalfa is in the pre-bud stage, so it and the grass will be soft and nutrient dense. Pricing for the year will be announced this week. Stay tuned.

We are beginning to harvest a field of newly planted alfalfa, oats, and orchard grass.

If you have not considered feeding early harvest oats before, take a look at some information online about oat hay for horses. It has excellent feed quality and a nutritional profile similar to Timothy grass. Oats does lack any calcium content, so our blend with alfalfa covers that nutritional need as well.

Cutting begins:

Today is the hottest day of the year so far, and we are well into a significant drought here in Indiana. We could really use some rain, but as you can see in this picture we are baling hay today in the heat…really nice hay.

Here is the amazing part of this photograph — behind the windrows of cut hay you can see a field section that was just cut two weeks ago, now lush and green, without any rainfall. We are getting very excited about the results we are seeing from our new natural soil building program.

The hay we brought in today will be priced and posted soon, but it is all pre-sold. If you need hay, we strongly encourage you to contact us so we can add your name and quantity to our list to hold your reservation.

This is a photo of our most recent planting. It is a 3.5 acre field planted densely with two alfalfa varieties, along with orchard grass, plus oats to protect the alfalfa while it matures. This is one of our fields along Sanes Creek, so the soil is nutrient rich, which has a direct impact on the nutrient density of hay.

We will be harvesting a mix of oats and alfalfa in July that needs to be pre-sold so we are not using our limited storage space for it. Expected yield is 300 bales (+/- 100), priced at $5.00 per bale.

If you could use alfalfa and oats hay for your horses, let us know right away. Any that isn’t pre-ordered will be contracted to a local dairy.

Contact us with any questions or to pre-order. Thanks!
