Hand-baler

As everyone knows, the key to any small-scale, grass-based farming operation is a hand-baler. I built this one and plan to use it to cut and bale excess grass early this summer when its growing faster than our cows can eat it. Mark A happens to have a nice pine forest on Paradise Ridge so we tried it out making pine straw bales this morning. You can use pine straw to mulch all kinds of plants and fruits.
