Mr. Wings and I went up from Fairfax Station last week with our truck and a borrowed trailer and came back with 122 bales from a guy that has a barn full of some gorgeous hay (which we didn't buy as it was more than what we could afford).
Anyway, we bought belly filler hay for $5.25/bale, first cutting orchard/timothy that was cut late and not very green. The farmer was very clear over the phone what I was getting. He's got thousands of bales of what we bought and a goodly supply of the beautiful orchard grass we didn't buy. I think he's got alfalfa, too.
I'd never bought from this farm before and found him through the Maryland Ag site for hay/straw listings.
Anyone interested in his contact info, send me a PT.
