That’s cool. Much faster than I did it last year, and probably more efficient.
And, not a waste. Provided weather is clear for the next couple of days, he’ll come by and bale the hay.
I guess we had to cut the pasture last year. The previous owners had let it go too much to make it worthwhile to cut for hay.
I also understand that hay prices are soaring as availability drops. Everyone with more than five acres is growing corn.
Is that a viable option for you? Although having the neighbor cut and bale it seems like a win/win for both of you.
I think we’d be lucky to make a couple hundred dollars after we paid to have the land tilled and planted.
What about renting it to a farmer to plant. I know they do that in Illinois.The husband of one of the nurses I worked with used to farm that way. He would rent/lease odd acreage and plant it. Seemed to work well for them.
My previous in-laws did that as well (they leased land to a local farmer). It’s generally a small percentage and might amount to the same couple of hundred dollars as paying someone to prepare and plant the small piece of land we have available. With our current agreement the neighbor is getting hay for his horses while he improves the quality of our pasture land which I hope will benefit us in the future through goats and horses.
