Making hay

Derek's cousine Wade and his friend Donald are raising organic beef and we have done a trade. We had a hay field that needed to be mowed and baled but we do not have the right kind of equiptment. Wade offered to cut and bale our hay and trade for manure spread on the field. We thought it was a great trade. They needed hay and we needed manure spread, i love great bartering.

Here are some pictures from the weekend where they cut the hay and then baled it, what a great weather weekend for making hay.
