To dry out in the fields under a warming sun

First cut hay of the season is already being wheeled in, that’s how hot and dry it’s been this year. Farmers mow the hay down as the hot and dry weather of the summer comes.

The green cut hay is permitted to dry out in the fields under a warming sun and is then baled – either in smaller, square bales or the much bigger round bales – and transported and stored. Or sold.

Trying to make ones life sustainable is more than a personal choice and almost automatically leads to a multitude of decisions you have never even thought of before. On this website we share what works for us, or woefully no longer works, obviously without claiming the same for you.

We hope that our journey towards a supplementary comprehensive celebration of nature’s beauty might just clear a pathway forward for you too, perhaps challenges a revealing reconsideration, or simply provides for an equally indispensable diversion.

Can we change the world through food? We believe we can and we support Slow Food, a global movement of local communities and activists across more than 160 countries. Together we defend cultural and biological diversity, promote food education and the transfer of traditional knowledge and skills.
