For the Farmer
A new market for presently wasted hay and overgrown crops
Use your August cut hay
Increase the use of your existing equipment
Maintain and PROFIT from your open spaces
Our area farmers have already started to contact us about selling their grass and hay this season. We at Enviro Energy are very pleased that so many of our “neighbors” are interested in what we are doing and are seeing the opportunity to work together. This is what it is all about folks!
The most common question so far is what kind of hay/grass do we need. So, we thought we would put our response here for all landowners to read:
“As for the hay, we were lucky with the number of farmers bringing us hay last fall. We are learning everyday what we should and shouldn’t have purchased. We still have some on hand and are getting a handle on what works best for us. We are currently pelleting 4 different kinds, brought to us from Cornell University for a study, [some of which is Switch Grass] and will soon be into some Reed Canary Grass. We still find that the old meadow weeds that have taken over our farms make great pellets.”
Enviro Energy needs very poor quality, AUGUST cut hay! Weeds, briars, and small brush actually make your hay better for us. If it gets rained on, so much the better. The hay should be dry enough when it is baled, to store without molding, just like any other baled hay.
That’s right, your eyes are not deceiving you, we want a crop that is presently unusable or wasted. There is now a viable market for severely weather damaged hay crops and hay crops that are not high quality enough for traditional uses.
We plan to begin accepting round baled hay or large square bales at our Wells Bridge, New York site after August 18, 2008 . If you want to discuss how we can work together, please give us a call after August 18 at 607-829-3183 or 829-8372.
