Manning Hill Farm produces all of the hay to feed our ever growing herd of grass fed, Dutch Belted cows. Our hay is a high quality mix of timothy, orchard grass, alfalfa and fescue grass and is fertilized annually using manure from our cows, and organic wood ash to maintain its high nutrition value. Most of this hay is made on 250 acres of rented land in the Connecticut River Watershed in the towns of Winchester, Hinsdale and Warwick. We work with the USDA/NRCS who have developed a nutrient management plan for us to produce optimum yields and quality of pasture and forage crops and also to protect the environment in accordance with New Hampshire Best Management practices.
We make 1000 round bales of hay for our own use to feed our dairy herd and young stock. * We are NOT selling any hay due to the drought in 2020.
