Thanks to plentiful early Spring rainfall and an ideal window for fertilizing, we were able to harvest most of our 2018 hay in May, at the peak of nutrition.
This hay is fertilized each Spring for optimum growth and nutrition, but we never use pesticides or herbicides.
It has been in dry/dark storage in our barn loft since harvest, in order to retain maximum nutrition.
Bales weigh on average 55 lb and are comprised mainly of fescue and orchard grass varieties.
We feed this hay to our pregnant goats, sheep and cattle, and it is well-received by all with little waste.
The price for this hay is $10/bale with a minimum order of 10 bales please.
We also have some drier hay that was cut later in the Summer. This hay is lower in nutrition and more stemmy/fibrous. It may be suitable for donkeys and other easy keepers.
We feed this hay to our cattle, mixed with our better hay. Our goats also help themselves to some whenever they'd like an extra fibre boost. And it makes fine bedding hay in place of straw.
This hay is $7/bale, minimum order 10 bales please.
If you just need a few bales of hay, we suggest purchasing at your local farm and feed store such as Buckerfield's or Shar-Kare, as these shops are set up to handle retail sales of small quantities.
We regret that we are not able to offer delivery at this time.
Important note re GST:
CRA rules state that we must charge GST if the hay is for non-production livestock (horses, donkeys, pet goats, etc). If it is for production livestock we do not have to charge GST if you are buying 750 kg or more (approx 30 bales of the nicer hay, 37 of the drier hay). If buying less than this amount, we need to charge GST regardless of the use.
Potential buyers are always welcome to look at the hay first, to determine if it will be suitable for your creatures.
