 ** For our 10 year anniversary I bought my wife a map of the world. I wrapped it up in a box and attached a card. On the card it said, “Throw this dart at this map, and wherever it lands is where I am taking you.” I’d been saving up money for close to 2 years now because we never had a honeymoon. I then put a dart in my wife’s hand. She was so excited and nervous. She said “I hope it lands on Ireland!” She finally threw the dart, and I’m happy to announce that this October my wife and I will be spending 2 wonderful weeks beside the baseboard in the kitchen.

Hay quality varied tremendously at today’s sale.  Prices reflect  that.  There was limited buyer attendance.  Good demand for top alfalfa, less for mid-range, and little demand for poor.

We now have the option available for you to buy select loads of hay through our website. The loads can be viewed on our website under the “Hay for Sale” tab.

 ** A pirate walks into a bar with a paper towel on his head. The bartender asks, “Hey, what’s with the paper towel?” The pirate says, “Argh, I’ve got a Bounty on me head.”
** A drunken man staggers into a Catholic church and sits down in a confession box and says nothing. The priest coughs to attract his attention, but the man says nothing. The priest knocks on the wall three times in an attempt to get the man to speak. Finally the drunk replies: No use knockin’ mate, there’s no toilet paper in this one either.”
