Having had a passion for farming all my life I am never happier than when working in a field in a tractor. This has lead me to set up a hay and haylage business on my 106 acre farm at Lewdown and since 2010 I have been supplying bales to a growing list of regular customers. I am always aiming to grow the best crop of grass possible giving attention to detail to maintain the best outcome of hay and haylage for my customers.
Perennial rye-grass provides a high energy haylage from the sugars in the stems.
Meadow grass has lower energy and therefore ideal for horses doing less work or requiring dust free fodder.
Large bale wrapped hay is very popular with customers. Wrapping takes place immediately after baling and keeps the crop fresh giving little or no dust.
To keep the grasses healthy an application of lime, sulphur, magnesium, sodium together with a full range of trace elements is applied anually in the spring. The benefits of these trace elements are passed on to your horse.
