They say making hay is difficult… I don’t know, it seems rather cut & dried….

**NEW SERVICE COMING**
Starting in September we will be offering ground hay delivered to your farm on live bottom trailers. Prices will depend on exactly what you want as far as Alfalfa, Grass, or Mixed Hay. For more details contact Paul 712-470-1274 or rockvalleyhay@gmail.com
