T & E Forshaw
T & E Forshaw’s is a working farm in the heart of Lancashire. Our grass fields enable us to supply high quality hay and haylage to the local community. The grass crop is grown across 200 acres which is rotated regularly. This allows us to produce a minimum of 2,500 quality bales to give our customers a year-round supply. With over 20 years experience our team is friendly and reliable. Therefore, we pride ourselves on this approach that allows us to get to know you, your horses and other livestock’s needs.
Hay and Haylage
Our top quality Lancashire hay and haylage is grown from seed. We use a short term crop rotation to ensure the highest nutritional value. We have separate fields of meadow grass and ryegrass with a carefully managed growing process, followed by mowing, baling and wrapping in the perfect weather conditions. This is all done by us to ensure no chemicals are used. Therefore we can provide you, our customer, with the highest quality possible. Furthermore, close observation and control throughout the operation means our haylage is the freshest it can be.
All hay and haylage is quality checked and leaves our farm fully sealed. We offer a six month guarantee on all bales from the day they are wrapped. Bales that are not up to standard will be replaced. However, this excludes any damage caused from the bales being on your premises. For example, damage from tears not caused by us.
Once opened, haylage will last 5 to 10 days. However, only up to 5 days in warmer conditions.
Our standard bale is a 5ft round, square bales and other sizes can be arranged upon request – please contact us for more details.
We offer free local delivery within a 5 mile radius all year round.
Any deliveries further than 5 miles will be charged in accordance to the distance — please contact us for a quote.
Orders can also be collected directly from our farm, by appointment only — please contact us to arrange this.
