|Farmer Ben and his hay…only thing is that we didn’t’ have to do the work!|
Ben and I live on 20 acres of land, of which 13 acres is being farmed by a local farm here in Door County, WI. We love the fact that our 13 acres is not only zoned agriculture (which helps with taxes!), but that it is certified organic! Waseda Farms, located here in Bailey’s Harbor, WI, supplies their organically raised animals and crops to local restaurants, markets and the public. I love that we are a part of the chain that feeds the cattle raised at Waseda! We grow grass, pesticide-free, that is fed to the cattle.
Since moving here in November, we have been in contact with Waseda anxiously waiting for the day that they will be here cutting, baling and hauling off the grass. Well, that day finally came!! We were like kids in a candy store! Ben, Crocket and myself all loaded up in our side by side and drove around taking pictures of all the action.

|This is our front property, looks like they were able to get about 25 bales of hay|

|Off to feed the cattle! Actually they ferment the hay first so we are supplying hay for the winter months|
