“Buy Hay Near Me.” How many times have we all typed that into our google search bar? I’m guessing about a zillion… Sometimes growing our feed, or enough of it, isn’t an option, and we have to find hay to buy. But when you don’t know someone who knows someone, how do you find it?

The answer can be a simple as it is complicated, that’s the beauty of what we do here at AllHay.com. You have a few different options when you are interested in “Buy hay near me.”

  1. Call all of your farmer friends and piece together your needs from their leftover hay 10-20 bales at a time. Buying hay this can be advantageous because you know the people personally and already trust their product without always having to check before taking ownership of the hay. It can boost your neighborly relationship and help with future networking opportunities. But, the legwork on your part with this option can be a large time investment.
  2. Search listings on Craigslist and the like. You can hit the internet “streets” googling your way through ads, looking for the hay that fits your needs. It’s all in your control, and you can do it at any time. What makes this option difficult is that it is all on you. You have to find the ads, find the hay type your looking for, and trust that the quality is what they say it is. You’re leaving a lot of room for unknowns.
  3. Enlist a local broker. Everybody knows that guy who knows everybody. We can all list a broker or two that do an amazing This can be a great option for you when looking for hay to buy, they already have the relationships, and they know who the good producers are.
