This barn is getting quite full. I believe we can stack about 7,000 square bales into this barn. With all of the rain we've received this year, our hay crop is growing really well. So well, in fact, that we're having a hard time keeping up with it. By the time one field is cut, raked, and baled, another field is ready to go. This means long days on the farm.
Tom is driving our bale wagon back from the field with a full load of hay.
We have so much hay we've overflowed into the new barn. Here is the first stack to ever be placed in the new barn.
This new barn was built last fall for equipment and extra hay storage. Tom and his dad have been working busily to weld the backstop you can see at the far end. This will keep from falling backwards when the bale wagon drops the stack of hay. Up next? Lots and lots of tin all over the main two rain-ward sides.
