Would you like your hay bagged?

.
Many favorite blogs here in the northern hemisphere are showing pastoral scenes of freshly-baled hay sitting in golden fields.
Over the years and the miles I've seen quite a few ways of protecting bales--but never saw hay in a zippered bag!
This one, encountered at the Polysack booth at last May's big Agritech exhibition, made me smile for some reason. :)

At a kibbutz in the Negev, 150 people work at Polysack to supply solutions for world agriculture.

I imagine there are bales in the field now, usually the round shaped ones...

That's quite a cossetted bale of hay! It makes me smile too.

Dina said...

VP, round bales? I hope you don't have too many steep hills around.

Sara, where have I been?? This is my first time to see the word "cosseted."

Remember them being round as well, some times having old tires upon, to keep them in place.

Thank you for the memories of home very much ! Please have a wonderful weekend ahead.

I've never seen hay stacks or bales in real life - here they mostly grow rice - but all the photos look so idyllic :)

Well, that would surely protect that bale, wouldn't it? Hay must be very valuable in your neck of the woods.

I usually prefer things in smaller packaging. Hay as well.

I have never seen this. In Norway we have one who has designed a special cover for hay bales, it becomes egg balls.
