Andrew's Hay offers various cuttings of grass hay, in both large and small bales, as well as straw, haylage, and both grass and corn silage. We cut most of our fields for grass silage in the spring, which enables ideal ripeness for early summer, 2nd-cutting hay.


Differences In Various Hay Cuttings:

    Horse Eating Hay
  • First cutting hay is harvested from late May through June, as the weather allows. It tends to be more mature, coarser, and less green in color than later cuttings. Generally, first cutting is lower in protein, but higher in fiber. This cutting is the least expensive and is usually used for livestock with lower nutrient requirements. Some people feed first cutting mixed with later cuttings, to cut cost.

  • Second cutting hay is harvested from late June through July. It rates from “excellent” to “prime,” tests as high as 12% -14% protein, and is typically greener in color than first cutting. Second cutting works well as a primary feed, and requires little or no supplement to create a balanced ration.

  • Third cutting hay is harvested from August to early September. It is comparable to second cutting, but may be finer in texture and a darker green. Although young cuttings of third can be richer in nutrients than second cutting, it usually tests about the same.

  • Fourth cutting hay is the wild card cutting—some years you get it and most you don’t, depending on the weather. Fourth cuttings harvest in late September, but we have done it in October. Nutritious but low in fiber, fourth cutting works best when mixed with a coarser feed with more roughage, such as first cutting.

Hay Pricing, Discounts, and Ordering

We have hay for sale most of the year, but deliveries, as well as pick-ups at the farm, are priced lower during the summer, before the hay goes into the barn lofts. Many of our customers prefer to pick up their hay soon after baling, while it's still in the field. This allows us to discount the price, because we don't have to handle and store the bales.

  • Available discounts are shown below for each product and service.
  • See Hay Delivery Services for delivery charges.

All prices listed below are subject to change and do not include sales tax.

Sales Tax Information

The Washington State Department of Revenue now requires us to charge sales tax on our hay, even for sales out of the field.  The local rate is 8.6%, and applies to all retail sales (“end users”).

It does not apply to customers who resell the hay or use it to produce an agricultural product for sale. If you are in this group and have a Reseller Permit or a Farmer’s Certificate for Wholesale Purchases, you are exempt, and once we have it on file, we will be delighted not to charge you sales tax.
