Finger Farms, in it’s continuing effort to make the finest quality horse hay available at the lowest possible price, has purchased a new hay accumulator. As you watch the video, you can see that as the hay leaves the baler it travels to the accumulator to make two rows of five bales. When 10 bales are collected, the back door of the accumulator opens and gently allows the bales to exit upon the ground. This process keeps the hay from being dragged across the ground and picking up dust, thereby making an extremely clean bale of hay for your horses to eat. We then pick up the group of 10 bales with a grabber and place them on a hay wagon and move them to a barn. The bales are then stacked on pallets to keep them off the ground.
This year we have put in an irrigation system, so we can insure having plenty of quality hay even in periods of drought.
