April 2017

This spring has been a busy one at the farm!  We have been involved in projects designed to improve the food quality for our livestock during the winter months.   Liberty Delight Farms is a hay producer with access to 350 acres within a 4 mile radius.  We have begun construction on a trench that will house hay silage or hayledge. Hay silage is made from grass and other components of hay and is packed into an airtight plastic tunnel and allowed to ferment before feeding to livestock.   It will be kept at a 40-50% moisture rate and will be stored in an underground silo tunnel.  Hayledge is a great option for a high quality feed with moderate costs and low harvest losses.
