Making hay can be a pleasure, from the smell of that first fresh cutting on a warm summer night, to the feeling of accomplishment from that first successful harvest. Learn when cutting hay is ideal, which hay equipment to use for harvesting, the best techniques for baling hay, and how to plan out your crop for next year.
The consumer’s demand for healthy food and the producer’s desire for a sustainable, profitable farming model have led to a huge growth in organic farming practices. To that end, Storey Publishing is proud to present "The Organic Farming Manual" by Ann Larkin Hansen. From producing grains, meat, dairy, and produce, to making hay and haylage, shopping for equipment, and protecting your water supply, Hansen covers it all in one comprehensive resource.
