    Thumbs up Hay for Sale

    Our supplier in PA has decided to get out of the hay business, but referred me to a farm on the Eastern Shore, Maryland. We live in Upper Marlboro, MD which is about 2 hours away and traveling to the eastern shore for hay just seemed out of the question. I am extremely particular about the hay I feed my horses and have been satisfied with our distributor in PA for 10 years but he is out of business now. I decided to call the farm and I spoke to a very nice gentleman who said they had about 2000 bales left. I asked about the quality and he stated it was an average quality so we decided to take the journey hoping it was worth the drive. When we arrived he was outside waiting with the barn wide open for us. I got out of the truck and that sweet smell I haven’t smelled in such a long time grabbed my attention immediately. He had 3 different kinds of hay and it was all beautiful and better than I had been getting for years. If this is only average for him I can’t wait to see his above average next year as I am now his newest customer. My boys loaded up 200 bales and we were on are way. My neighbor came over and helped us unload and liked it so much he called and got a load the following day. If you are in need of quality hay give him a try as “the price is right”!!!

    Here is his information…Sweetwater Farms 410-829-8784

    Sent you a PM. High-quality, tested, alf/orchard for probably $285/ton delivered from Ky to DE on a full semi. Third cut about 80% alfalfa, 20% orchardgrass. Bales weigh about 70+lbs.

    Hey AJ, did DiablosHalo take you up on that? I can only take 2 tons....that is all I need...How many tons on a semi load?
    Might be interested, keep me on your list. My SO works over at a training center with 400 horses, and they reportedly are ALL looking for alfalfa at the moment. Probably could move a semi load at that price. Check distance to Felton, Delaware. (Location of training center.) Let me know! Thanks.
