Business Description

This listing is for a well-established and profitable hay-farming operation located in the far western suburbs of Chicago that is available to a qualified buyer. This business offers a buyer a substantial yearly six-figure income.

They offer hay analysis test reports, grass hay, mixed hay, alfalfa hay, wheat straw and mulch hay. Some of their products are Illinois certified weed-free mulch hay, feed hay and straw. The crop is certified by an inspector with the Illinois Crop Improvement Association (which is a marketing advantage).

All of their hay & straw is made in-house locally, with a 12 year experienced haying crew, in Kane and DuPage Counties. The hay bales are in small square bales of 50 pounds and bundled into 21 bales per bundle for automation, ease of production and volume. They sell everything to the lucrative horse market in their region. Some of the hay is made in 800 pound round bales, some of which are stored in barns. All the round bales are net wrapped for quality. 71,000 bales of hay in 2018 and they’re projected for 81,000 in 2019.

The business offers the bale deliveries 24-7-365 and many times the same day, next day and on fixed weekly schedules. They are capable of handling any size order no matter how large or small. They are also fully capable of providing hay in the winter months as well for their committed customers because of their large storage capacity (another marketing advantage) and via brokerage, if need be.

In addition to the strong owner income, over $900,000 in assets is to be transferred with the sale. This includes their inventory, equipment and related vehicles.

If you would like more information about this business, or if you would like to schedule a site visit, please contact the agent either by phone or by email.
