Baling Hay for My Horses

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, farmer and hay expert, Carlos Triguero, and his team worked hard to cut, toss, rake and bale the hay in my fields. It’s an arduous process, which depends largely on the weather, and these last few days have been perfect.

Enjoy these photos.


Here is a short video showing how the hay shoots out of the baling machine and into the trailer.
