The farm was abandoned for over 11 years so it took an intense effort on
their part to get things up and running. They feel it was worth the extra labor

fields this year with even higher quality alfalfa. This area is famous for the
quality of hay produced. Their healthy hay fields speak volumes about the
care they put into their growing practices.

customers that come back year after year.
