Hay Baling-Amish Style

Here are some photos of a local Amish farmer baling hay.

The hay is scooped up with the yellow roller and goes back into the baler.

Here the farmer is clearing the baler.

Time to turn and go the other way…

Now we will go the other direction.

Now watch….

Open wide…

Now it is time to close…

And on down the field.

    My husband used to run the new-fangled monster version. So nice to see how it was done the old-fashioned way. I bet it’s a lot more quiet, too. 😉

      It is always interesting to see the farmers in the field working with their horses or mules.

      I was at a distance when I made the photos. Saw him working in the field when I was driving down the road and pulled into a church parking lot to watch the process. Thanks for taking a look.

      Thanks. Noticed the farmer working as I was driving down the road and pulled in a church parking lot to watch the process. Love to see the farmers in the fields working with their animals.
