Making Hay While the Sun Shines

The town of Madison has a lot of grass to mow on the various town properties.  But one place they don't have to mow is the Bauer Park.  Kingsley does it for free and we use the hay to feed many of our animals during the winter.

Sometimes the antique Farmall and New Holland baler needs a bit of coaxing. 

Don't try this on your lawnmower!

I took a turn.

The fields have to be cut, then raked (or tedded), then baled.

The clear fields are great for running...

...and exploring (here, a Monarch butterfly caterpillar).

Back at the farm we load the hay into the loft...

...with plenty of help.
