Our Produce

Mudgee Hay Company grows specialist produce to make premium hay. Our multiple hay farms are situated along the fertile river flats of the Cudgegong Valley, amongst the picturesque and mineral rich hills of Mudgee, New South Wales.

Seed to Feed depicts our hands-on management of our product, from the seeds all the way to the end product bales of the hay.

Growing our quality produce is not achieved alone. We liaise with local agronomists and seed specialists to ensure our soils are balanced and nutrient rich for each crop to reach its full potential. Seeds are selected to meet our specific climate and conditions and they are sown, nurtured, monitored and maintained until it is time for harvest. Then we get to work cutting, raking and baling the hay ready for sale – and yes, we do make hay while the sun shines. As required, our crops are irrigated, ensuring each crop matures successfully.

When we are happy, we have a high-quality product that is ready for sale, we make it available to our customer via pick up or delivery* throughout New South Wales.

*Minimum order applies.

Please note we have various grades of hay available for differing requirements. We currently have stands of lucerne, oats, wheat, forage barley and teff which will be made into small squares, rounds and large squares of hay.
