Who are we?
Newhay Feeds are passionate about growing and producing hay to make premium, natural animal feeds from Timothy Hay. We specialise in growing and drying Timothy Hay, a quality grass, known for its high fibre and palatability. This makes it ideal for feeding horses, small animals and herbivores.
Products are 100% British, grown and manufactured on our family-owned, 350-acre farm in North Yorkshire. Farming and production techniques use the latest technology and the company is proud to supply the UK’s top manufacturers and retailers.
We are a fully accredited and national award winning company.
What we do…
Hay is grown and harvested from our designated fields, spanning over 400 acres. The protection of wildlife around our crops is very important to us which is why we plant margins into our fields to encourage nectar loving insects.
We pride ourselves on getting our crops off the field and into the barn within 48 hours. To do this we cut at the right time, when the weather and grass quality are working hand in hand. Once the hay is cut it is then teddered (spun) 3 to 4 times a day to make sure that the moisture evaporates as quickly as possible.
This results in a crop that is high in fibre, low in sugar and high in palatability, perfect!
The bales are then put onto the drier and into the fully enclosed barn which keeps spores low. Once the hay arrives into the store it is then moisture checked and put away ready to go into the factory.
Once into the factory the bales are then picked and put into the production process to make a huge range of products for the UK’s leading manufacturers and retailers along with our new and exciting premium, own brand Newhay hay!
Everything we do at Newhay is designed to produce the best quality Timothy Hay which is a combination of the best product, the latest technology and above all great people!
