Each Bale Is Handled Four Or Five Times Between Field & Barn


  1. This is a farm skyscraper!

  2. What about your back, yours arms, yours knees ?!!!

  3. Wow-that's a lot of hay! I'm just back from vacation, and I see you've completed your bread tips. I am so excited! I may put them to use as soon as this weekend. Thanks so much for helping us novice bread bakers. :)

  4. Hi Cherrybegonia,
    Farm skyscraper--I like that! The bales of hay are sort of like big building blocks--big, heavy building blocks. And if you don't stack them just right, well, two frolicking dogs can knock the whole thing down--or at least do major structural damage. : )

    Hi Amy,
    Yes, putting up hay is quite a job--especially since we did it twice this year instead of just once! But I feel so much better now that we have plenty of food for the sheepsies to eat this winter--and I won't have to sell half of the flock! : )

    Hi Mijo,
    You've just described why I haven't responded to comments lately--haying recovery! : )

    Hi Kristi,
    Yep, that is a lot of hay. We put up about 800 bales this year. About 100 bales will fit on that trailer.

    I'm so glad you're excited about the Bread Tips. Have fun baking!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
