Making Hay

Someone paid us for our standing hay.  The income is nice but seeing all that potential being hauled away made me very sad.  He cut and baled 49 round bales:  73,000 to 98,000 pounds of grass from our 15 acres.  Grass we could have used to grow beef or sheep (many, many sheep!).  I see this as potential wasted.   We spent alot of money on non GMO, pesticide free feed for our chickens and pigs and then sold our grass for a song.  Some brainstorming and goal setting will be occurring in our near future.   We want to be as sustainable as possible, using what we have to its best potential.  And what we have is alot of grass!
