Premium Grass and Alfalfa Hay
Our goal is to raise premium hay in a sustainable manner. Sustainability is a word that means different things to different folks. For us, sustainability is about raising quality hay in a manner that takes into account the landscape of the JustLiving Farm and its community.
One of our core concerns is to raise hay in a manner that cares for the soil, animals, plants, air, and our neighbors.
To make this a reality, our goal is to raise hay without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides. We incorporate old fashion manure into our fields, and cut a little more often to keep our weeds and pests to a minimum. Producing hay in this manner means we produce less tonnage per acre and guarantee a few weeds and a few bugs. Yet each year our soil increases in humus, beneficial microbes, and plants develop natural immunities.
Bottom line, we raise our hay sustainably, it benefits the environment, and it has great nutritional benefits for your animals. We do this with an aim to develop relationship and long-term buyers. For instance, when a ton of hay leaves the farm, some of those bales will have weeds. However, our purpose is not to sell weeds and should the buyer come across a bale half-full of weeds, then, next time around, we replace that bale. Thus, we strive for long-term buyers and an equitable relationship!
