Making hay the old fashioned way in Ohio

Share Article

This is the typical way hay is made on Amish farms in Ohio other than the 24’ mower.

I wasn’t able to get footage of the wrapper wrapping the hay, but the mower is a 24’ double-action sickle bar mower, designed and built by Family Farm Innovations in Millersburg, Ohio.

Huge thanks to the family for allowing me to shoot a video of their operation.
