While every effort is made to deliver a consistent, quality product to you, our valued customers, we do have to deal with some variables from time to time.
Varying field conditions. These affect the exact makeup of the hay, which causes the variety of hay you receive to vary in percentage.
Wet weather. When it rains too much, we have to delay our hay harvest. When we delay it, the hay continues to grow and mature, which can affect its colour. You may notice an increase in stems that are more brown in colour.This is especially a challenge with orchardgrass!
Hot, dry weather. When the sun beats down and the rain is minimal, your hay may have a more “crisp” feel to it, as opposed to the softer hay we get when it’s wet and moist (but not too wet!).
Working with nature to produce something is a fun challenge, but we always make sure we ship as consistent and high-quality product as we can.
Thanks from your friendly farmers at Hayday!
