The team took a day out to visit Yorkshire specialist grower, Newhay.

Hear what our team found out on their day trip to sunny Yorkshire…

We know the Timothy grass used to make our munch blocks is special, but we found out so much more when we went to see our specialist Yorkshire grower out in the fields cutting and baling.

Hay stored, ready for analysis

Each field has its own personal name and is surrounded with nectar boundaries for wildlife and natural pollination.

The timothy used for munch is only ever cut between 7am and 10am to ensure the lowest sugar content as possible

Our timothy is cut early just after it goes to seed to ensure the maximum stem length and highest fibre content with as little leaf as possible to keep starch levels to a minimum

The team works hard to cut the timothy and take it off the field within 48 hours. During this time they will tedder the grass and turn it 3 or 4 times to take out as much moisture as possible prior the drying process.

After cutting, the timothy immediately goes through a roller to squash and split the stems, allowing as much moisture as possible to escape.

To avoid collecting harmful spores, the timothy is then taken straight from the field to the dryer.

This specialist drying process means that the timothy grass keeps just 10% moisture content with all the vitamin and natural minerals locked in.

The hay bales used to make our munch blocks are individually chosen and tested based on their rich green colour and nutritional content.

One large bale of hay makes 300 munch blocks!
