Our journey to a "hay day"
It all started as a little 13 acre patch of canary grass in the middle of one our corn fields. A small international baler and a cab-less 560 international tractor laying out just over one thousand small square bales twice every summer. Then out would come the flat bed wagons and Dad and Grandpa followed by a string of young farm kids who were barely bigger than the bales themselves. With leather gloves, sweat, and the pride and stubbornness born deep into Medunas this little crew would pick up and put the bales away in storage. Some of the best times were born in the hot sun of that hay field and young Christopher saw a vast opportunity to expand the farm by exploring this area. As he got older, he sought out any unused hay acres he could find in the area, mostly pasture/backyards of acreage dwellers and would ask to harvest their grass. This led to new equipment, which in turn led to more and more acres. Bigger tracts of land replaced the backyards, and a Bale Barron and a Bobcat replaced the hand labor. The passion and family effort remains and Meduna Family Farms currently harvests over 2000 acres of grass hay and alfalfa.
