Business continues as usual, despite seemingly soaring costs coupled with poor availability.


At this time of year we shift our focus to the harvesting of our haylage, hay and straw.  Contact us today to discuss your years supply at a fixed price.



WE ARE STILL OPEN, but would prefer pre-booked collections wherever possible please.
We just ask that you pay in advance over the phone by card and your goods will be ready for you on your arrival.
Please do get in touch if you have any queries, or indeed if you would like to arrange a collection.
Deliveries will continue as usual.

Coronavirus statement from WHS:

In response to the governments most recent advice, WHS will remain open for both deliveries and collections as normal for the foreseeable future.

We are currently following government guidelines and all members of staff are frequently washing hands and keeping social interaction to a minimum.

We are offering a non contact service for both deliveries and collections.

For DELIVERIES, the driver can call with an eta and take any instructions for unloading – so he is self sufficient on arrival.

For COLLECTIONS, if you phone ahead with your order and pay in advance – we will leave your goods out in the yard on a trolley for you to help yourself.

We are now trying to reduce – and longer term hopefully avoid – cash payments and would prefer if all customers pay in advance over the phone by card, or collection customers with goods under £45 by contactless card.

Please be aware that we are exceptionally busy at the moment and ask customers to plan ahead and where possible give us 2 weeks notice on all orders for delivery.

We will keep you up to date if any changes occur, but in the meantime please get in touch if you have any concerns or queries.

WHS 2019 Harvest……

Please see below a short video which we put together last year showing you all about our haylage production.

New crop Haylage sampling time!

Once the new crop bales have had long enough (at least 8 weeks from wrapping) we check a few before sending any out for delivery.

The plastic is removed and the strings are cut, so that we can check all the way through the bale. I love this time of the year-the haylage smells fantastic!
Now these bales are ready for delivery, our lorries are super busy! We can fit 60 large haylage bales on a full lorry load. These are then unloaded with our Manitou forklift which has a grab / squeeze attachment to take the bales off the lorry and unload them where you need them.


Lovely golden barley straw; these excellent quality conventional bales come in bale baron packs of 21. If you have not seen the barons before; they are a pack made up of 21 individually strung conventional bales. These are then stood up on end in 3 rows of 7 and secured with an extra 4 strings into the bale baron pack. Our forklift unload service makes light work of offloading these packs of bales from the lorry directly into your barn. For Further information, please give us a call, drop us an e-mail or send us a message on Facebook



hay103The same top quality haylage you will find in our standard bale haylage original, but now also available in our NEW ‘3 SLICE BALE’.


You will find these bales more user friendly and generally easier to use.


Once you open your bale, you will see 3 clearly defined sections within the bale. This makes filling haynets a much quicker and easier job.

As an introductory offer, we are pricing these bales at our usual standard bale haylage original price.
