Dust free forage for horses...
At Craven we are proud of our grassland management and since 2002 have dedicated our efforts to the production, packaging and delivery of fine quality forage for horses.
Cravenbale is unique amongst specialist forage producers, we have retained and nurtured many of our traditional old fashioned hay meadows. Although less productive than many modern grasses, they have character and charm containing a fine blend of species rich herbs and traditional grasses. Blessed with a little sunshine they create a sweet smelling highly palatable feed, high in fibre low in protein, ideal for most leisure horses.
At Cravenbale we allow the grasses time to mature before harvesting, this helps increase the fibre and decrease the amount of protein in the final product.
Although haylage is far from an exact science as no two years are ever alike, we make every effort at each stage to do what we feel necessary. Obviously the weather plays a huge part in the successful production of hay and haylage.
