This week we are busy cutting, baling and wrapping the hay in our hay meadows.  As always it is a race against the weather, so we are making the most of this dry spell.  We work with our contractor, Dave Gwilt who does a fantastic job.  Nathan, our Countryside Officer has been helping by driving the baler which speeds up the process.  The bales are wrapped straight after baling. They will then be sold as ‘haylage’ to a local farmer as winter cattle feed.
