    Wink SE PA- need hay?

    I am considering going to either Wolgemuths or Weaverland this week, and buying around 7 tons of hay- which I have room for in my loft. I am looking for a grass mix of some kind.

    I would be willing to sell some of it, at the barn, for however much it costs me to buy it, and get it home. Does anyone else need hay in this area?

    I don't know- it is a hay auction. So, whatever it is per ton, plus mileage to get it back here.

    Sometimes folk sonly want a pickup load- and those are the loads that go for the most money at the sale. So, I was hoping that if someone only needed 25-50 bales, this might help then out...

    Default Hay auctions

    Don't laugh too hard. I live near Weaverland and New Holland auctions.

    I'm too much of an idiot to bid, and too scary as crap can be hidden on the inside of a load.....but here's what I have done in the past.
    Go, hang out, talk to the owners of those loads (preferably the Amish or Mennonites) then offer to deal directly with them and go back to their farms for a load. (ton usually)
    I've made future contacts with them and have never had one say no.

    I found some of the best alfalfa/timothy i have ever seen. I had to cut it still (mix) it with grass hay it was so nice, and I bought it from an Amish farmer.

    I haven't had horses at my place for a while to have to go buy, but just talk to people. It's amazing how much can get done. ;-)

    This is good advice, but I don't think that you only need to buy from Amish or Mennonites. My husband sells hay at these auctions and he is very upstanding and upfront about the quality of the hay. Since we have a breeding farm, he is well aware of the kind of information horse people want about the quality of the hay. Just talk to the farmers, most will be willing to sell it to you from the barn vs the auction.
