Making hay with the Freese family

Betsy Freese and her family spend a good share of the summer making grass and alfalfa hay.

Farm in the city

The Freeses produce small, square bales for their own sheep and goats, and to sell to local farmers. Good quality grass hay can be sold to horse owners. They also make big, round bales, which are preferred by cattle producers. The Freese home was once in the country, but as nearby Indianola, Iowa, has expanded, they find themselves raising livestock and baling hay right on the edge of town.
