Round Haylage Bales
We are well-stocked with haylage (Marshmallows) this year. Haylage is round-baled grass wrapped airtight with plastic. The bales range from 750 to 1500 pounds, depending on the moisture content, with the drier haylage costing more. We now have a limited supply of locally-grown alfalfa haylage bales too!
$60 to $100 per bale.
Our straw is baled from wheat and barley that we grow ourselves. We have certified weed-free straw as well as non-certified. The bales average 45 pounds and are 14" X 18" X 40" in size. Now available in mechanically-loaded, 21-bale bundles.
Certified weed-free - $7.50/bale
First Cutting Hay
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 higher in fiber than protein.
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
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
Harvested from August to early September, it's a richer & greener grass than the 2nd cutting, best used for specific applications.
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
This 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.
While lower in fiber, it's more nutritious, the fourth cutting works best when mixed with a coarser feed with more roughage, such as first cutting.
Try a bale Before you buy a load..
The sweetness, color, and texture of hay can vary, depending on the temperatures and rainfall during the growing season.
To ensure your satisfaction, you can stop by the farm, buy one bale, and feed it out before ordering a load. please note that, in the case of exchanges, the original delivery fees are non-refundable.

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 has increased again to 9%, 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.
