My wife and I were discussing our search for acreage and how important it will be for us to grow our own hay. This got us to thinking: Where is the best hay growing areas? Where we are (the damp northeast) the hay grows great. Three cuttings easily. The problem is drying it. We hardly ever get four or five days of nice sunny, dry weather. Most farms around here have gone to plastic wrapped sileage. So if your number one priority is to grow good hay and dry it, where do you go? Every main geographic area we look at seems to have it's own challenges, but there must be areas that are best overall. This is mostly for information's sake, but we are going to be a bit free to move in a year or two. It might be a factor! Thanks.
