Stacking hay

This week we picked up our baled organic hay crop. Below is a series of photos showing how that gets done. The first shot is of my two younger sons, Mit and Mason, standing on a bale watching Stacia pick up the bales. We hired our neighbor to do all of the baling and stacking because we don't have any of this specialized equipment. This machine, known as a harrow bed, is really amazing. It picks up 1200 lb bales on the go, and stacks them automatically. Very cool!

How much does shipping 20 lbs of organic brown rice to zip 48334 cost?

We can ship 20 lbs of rice anywhere in the US (including Hawaii) for $14. Thanks for asking!

I love the fact that it's a woman driving the equipment
