Organic hay pricing 2014The following hay prices are at our Barn in Canaan, Vermont. We are in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont 1.25 miles from the town of Colebrook, NH. We encourage you to pick up the hay at our farm for the lowest cost. We will help you load and get on your way at no charge. It is best to call or email before you come to make sure we will be there and that we have the hay you need. Contact Us
(Effective November 2013)
All of our hay is certified Organic. We are certified by NOFA and our certification number is 07112. We do test our hay and a hay analysis is available upon request.
All of 2013 hay has been sold. We no longer have hay to sell until next year. This year was a good year for haying but not the best quality hay due to early summer rains. Hay quality tends to decrease as the hay gets older. We really did not get all of first cut hay in before the first of August because of the excess rain. The rain cause us to cut first cut hay later than we wanted. We cut 11,000 bales of hay this year with 8000 first cut bales and 3000 second cut bales. All the hay fields were fertilized this year to maintain a high quality hay.
If you are a new customer I would suggest you contact us in the Spring to place your order. There is the possibility that we will not be taking new customer orders if you don't call early.
During the Fall and Winter hay delivery season we do not take verbal hay orders for hay unless there is a 50% deposit and a set delivery/pickup date. I sell my hay on a first come basis. I do not know how long I will have hay during the season but I do know that I will be out of hay before the end of the season. I am sorry when you come back to buy hay and I am out of hay but that is not my fault. Verbal order from any customer that says I may come back to buy more hay does not change my hay invertory or my bank account and will be ignorred.
Note; Our hay bales are heavier than most due to them being well compressed and 36 inches long. The length and compression is a requirement of the bale wagon (see hay making page 3). Our bale weight is approximately 35-45lbs/bale. Our prices per bale are higher due to this heavier bale. Other hay dealers sell kicker bales which are typically 20 percent less hay, which should be 80 percent of our prices.

There is handling charge of $.25 a bale for loading bales for delivery. This charge is to cover the cost of hiring extra help to load the semi truck and truck and trailer. If the hay is purchased at the barn there is no handling charge.
