Hill Hay Farms is a family owned and operated business. It was established in 1994 with the sprigging of 13 acres of ground and has grown year after year since. It is co-owned by Ronnie Hill and his son Steven Hill. Ronnie worked part time while he worked at Emerson Electric, but in 2005 he retired from Emerson and began focusing all of his time toward the farm. Ronnie was the main baler until the farm grew too big for one baler to keep up, then they enlisted the help of Ronnie's wife, Gail, to start operating a 2nd baler after she retired in 2005 from Greene County Tech.
Steven's son, Cruz Hill, also helps out alot during summer and when he is out of school. Cruz has been able to operate much of the equipment on the farm since he was 6 and can now operate any of it. As we have grown, we have added a third baler into the mix, Steve's wife Amber.
Hill Hay farms believes in the old way of doing things. We stay loyal to people that are loyal to us. Even on a bad growing year we strive to keep enough hay to supply our normal customers and do our best to keep the prices from raising. We have heard many stories about people believing they had their hay reserved by someone, whether by mouth or even signing a contract, to later find out the hay was sold because someone else offered them more money, and that type of action will never happen with us.
