Baum Farm terms and conditions of our hay sales
general there is no warrantee impressed or implied as soon as our hay
leaves the farm. We will not take back any hay for any reason
after it’s purchased and leaves our farm. After it leaves our
farm it is your hay to do as you wish. It is up to the
purchaser of our hay to determine if our hay is suitable for your
livestock. Purchasers of hay have many different opinions as to
the quality of hay and what is best for their livestock. The
reason for this policy is that we can not control how our hay quality
is perceived and how our hay is handled or stored after it leaves the
farm. Another issue is that hay is a commodity that is very bulky
relative to its low cost and we do not have the resources to recover
any losses due to shipping hay either to the purchaser or back to Baum
As purchaser of hay you have many suppliers to
choose from. Hopefully when you purchase Baum Farm hay you are
satisfied with your hay purchase and will return to purchase more
hay. If you are not satisfied with our hay, the purchase
conditions, and or warrantee then you are free to find another hay
Here is our guarantee:
the hay we sell is grown on our fields either owned or rented.
All of our fields are certified organic and we maintain the fields in
accordance with USDA organic requirements. We harvest our hay at
the optimum time that provides the best balance between nutrition and
yield except when weather interferes with this timeframe. We dry the
hay and test the moisture before baling and during baling. We
package the hay into a well compressed bale set to 34-38 inches
long. To the best of our ability, the hay fields are clean and
free of foreign material including insects and so are our bales.
We strive to produce a quality product.
Details of our warrantee:
We do not return, replace or refund any money for our hay. When
you purchase our hay and it leaves the farm, it is your hay.
The hay belongs to the purchaser as soon as it leaves our farm with no
warrantee impressed or implied. Please inspect the hay before it
leaves the farm. We can do moisture inspections of the bales
prior to it leaving. You are welcome to inspect the bales and
take some apart as long as you purchase the bales. Any bad bales
found during inspection, you are not required to pay for.
In the case of our semi loads; when the semi leaves the farm it is the
purchasers hay. Any damage that occurs to the hay during
transport is between the trucker and purchaser. Baum Farm does
not replace any hay for any trucking damage. Baum Farm does not share
in the trucking responsibility and you are welcome to use any carrier
that you would like. Baum Farm only arranges semi loads
deliveries using our suppliers for the convenience of purchaser.
We use trucking suppliers that have demonstrated repeated good
performance to date but we make no guarantee of their repeated good
performance in the future. You are welcome to inspect the hay before is
goes into the semi and approve it, but after it leaves the farm the hay
is yours. If you don’t like the hay when it arrives it is still
your hay to do as you wish but it will not be returned or
replaced. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to know the
quality of the hay before it ships. Because of this policy all
hay shipped by semi is prepaid.
