Hay Bale Farming

Hay bale farming is a part of Whidbey Island’s culture and iconic scenery. While you are driving around the island you are likely to see large oversized marshmallow shapes in farm fields. These are bales covered in plastic to reduce handling and eliminate the need for storage. We are lucky to live in an area that still has working farms for us to enjoy! With fall upon us, the baling season will soon be over. The weather will begin to change, the leaves will begin to fall, and the fields will start to turn from the various shades of brown to a lush green again.
