MOWING & BALING One of the greatest pleasures of farming is watching brown, stubbly wintertime grass slowly transform into the lush, green grass fields of spring. When we arrive at one
of these fields on a blue sky breezy day and set about the task of mowing, the self-
propelled mowers we use make short work of even the biggest field. The cut grass
dries for a couple of days, then the rakers move in just ahead of the balers, which helps retain moisture for a highly marketable hay bale. Most of our 4x4x8 bales are destined
to become part of the nutrient rich mix used by mushroom growers of southeastern Pennsylvania, who grow about half of all mushrooms consumed in the United States.
