A beautiful day in the neighborhood!  Perfect for stocking up on straw for deep bedding.

And the best part?  Visiting with the farmers who grew the straw!  We were sent home with a decadent gluten free chocolate cake and some gorgeous homemade coconut oil deodorant bars.  Bucking bales is sweaty work 😉

    Is there anything better than really good neighbors/friends? Not in my book! Spent part of yesterday with friends of 20 years, ages 72 & 87, still rearing to go! These 2 are still maintaining 2 houses with small acreage 50 miles apart. One of the houses is around 4000 square feet. I would much rather see them in one much smaller house…. but I guess it is keeping them young…..

    Hi, Are those the bales you talk about, the ones that are a good size to handle? Because they look like the huge bales of straw I buy, and I can barely move one of those myself.

      These are about 50# two-tie bales, same size as our hay. Bale size depends on the baler, this is about as small as you can get.

    I have straw envy!

      Yeah, it’s pretty nice, but it sure goes fast once you start putting it under cows! That’s about 20 days worth 😦

    What is straw going for these days? I hear tell it is high around here. Not much wheat planted around either so next year may be high too.
