Baling Hay

Hot, hard, dusty work, baling hay.

Not living on a working farm growing up, I’d sometimes help neighbors bale hay.

Sometimes out of a sense of community, sometimes for the workout, sometimes for fun. Kinda.

Nowadays, hay is packaged in large round bales; machines do most of the heavy lifting. The bales are sometimes protected from weather, but don’t need to be stored in a barn as do smaller square bales.
