Premium Grass and Alfalfa Hay

Our  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 hay is grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides. Old fashion manure works fine in our fields.  When it comes to weeds and pests we cut more often to keep them to a minimum. We produce less tonnage per acre growing it this way, however we get to guarantee your animals a more rounded diet by providing a few weeds to eat!  By growing hay this way  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, we fully expect when bales of hay leave the farm some  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!

Currently, little hay is sold to the public.  Our cattle take in a fair amount of what we raise and the remainder is sold to customers who have returned year after year and who reserve next years cutting in the winter.  However, once in a while we have extra.  If you have been referred to this page by an ad, please carefully read the terms of sale below.  If the hay suits you and your animals, let’s talk about getting you on next years hay list!
