I've just come back from visiting some of the farmers we deal with on a regular basis and also some new ones, Ive just got to say they work so bloody hard, hats off to them.
Its not easy farming and often the weathers Gods aren't kind.
So far this season we have secured some really nice hay, if you'd like a stable price year round with hay thats not going to deteriorate in open sheds and your horse is not going to waste, come over for a visit and ill run you through what we have.
I honestly believe we have the best hay available to market and its priced fair !
The hay is being stored in a farmers new shed on a concrete floor, the sheds all closed up and no sunlight gets in. The hay was harvested with good colour in it and it smells really nice.
Italian Rye Grass / Meadow Hay
This hay come off a brand new stand, good weight in the bale, good colour and smells great.
There will be a limited supply from this particular farmer, first in best dressed.
Sub Clover Hay
This is up there with some of the best sub I've seen.
Fine stem Queensland hay holding its leaf well.
I have just started planting my seasonal herb n veg which includes
Some of these I have been a little late on but the weather has been holding up reasonably good so everything should go to plan, fingers crossed.
I do suggest fertilizing and some heavy mulching now which should benefit your garden come spring, try sugar cane, straw, or lucerne.
If you have a worm farm now is the time to pull some of that nice black compost out and spread through the garden with some worm wee.
We have for a limited time only 30 ltr bag Certified Organic Compost @ $8.50
There's is a large range of seasonal seedlings in right now so be quick as we will not be open over the Easter break.
We will have a great selection of new season seedling coming in Thursday morning stay tuned for what's new
It has been another difficult year to secure good quality hay because of the weather once again but I'm happy to say we have been successful.
I've spent a week down in N.S.W and Victoria securing the best Clover Hay I've seen in 10 years as well as some really nice Rye Grass, Clover Rye, and Lucerne.
Before Christmas I headed up to Queensland and meet with a number of Lucerne growers as well as a new Hay Merchant who's job it is to pick the eye out of the best hay week to week.
I can comfortably say we have the best hay on the market at a very competitive price, for all hay requirements please don't hesitate to give myself a call to discuss your needs.
Once again we wish you and your family a Happy New Year from the staff here at Kensington Produce.
