Green Pastures.

It's an overcast day here today and a bit humid. We have had regular rain and the pastures are lush. The cattle are out grazing as nature intended. When we say grass-fed beef, this is what we are referring to. Cows roaming lush green pasture eating grass to their hearts content.

Fancy Feet.

These visitors to the Hiday Farm came prepared in proper footwear that was just, well, pretty fancy! We couldn't help but notice their bedecked tootsies as they hopped on the wagon for a hay ride out to the pumpkin fields.

Warm Fuzzies.

The spring open house at the farm is sure to have recent hatchlings that the kids adore. I was thinking this little duckling should be named "Cuddles", as this farm visitor was enamored with it and it seemed to enjoy every bit of the attention.

Farm Visitors.

It was great to see everyone come out to the farm and explore! We want our customers to visit and see for themselves how we operate.

Whether planting young pumpkin seedlings,  getting cozy with ducklings or just discovering new surroundings, it was an enjoyable day for all. We take our commitment to provide you with wholesome food very seriously and we welcome your questions and comments.
