Baling the Hay

Our big hay baling project continues at my Bedford, New York farm.

Hay is a harvested plant that’s dried and cured after being cut in the field. In most cases, hay is cut during the late bud or early bloom stage to maximize its nutritional value. This week, Carlos Triguero, an expert in hay, has been working alongside my outdoor grounds crew to cut, toss, rake and bale the hay in my large fields. It’s an arduous process, which depends largely on the weather, but the team got it done - and just in time before the rain.
