Dec 2018 hay update:
Due to crappy weather this season we had way less hay harvested; new customer sales are suspended for now.
Hopefully next summer will be a little more cooperative! Check back with us in June!
Soons Orchards typically cuts hay throughout the summer... (always on the hottest days it seems!) Depending on the season, we typically have a good supply of high quality mixed grass, alfalfa and timonthy hay, for use as animal feed, plus mulch hay for bedding. Our bales are standard rectangular bales (not "kicker bales") about 40 lbs each.
Jeff Soons manages hay customers directly (except for mulch hay which can usually be bought in smaller, self-serve quantities by visiting the orchard). To join the "hay customer list", please e-mail info@soonsorchards with your name and phone number(s) and the best time to reach you, and what grade (alfalfa, mixed grass, mulch) and quantity you are looking for. You may call the orchard at 845-374-5471 and leave a message with the same information, and we will return your call.
Prices vary according to grade of hay and quantities. Please plan to help load your truck/trailer when you pick up. Delivery (minimum req'd.) is available for a fee, but delivery times are limited.
Soons was an accidental discovery while taking a scenic drive. It has become one of our favorite places! Your cider is hands down the best we've ever tasted and those apple cider doughnuts, don't get me started! I'll wait on line forever for one. (And I did wait on a long line for some when I was pregnant.)

Food n drinks are delicious. I've been coming there for 13 years. Love this place. I live in Staten Island, NY… The drive is long but beautiful and I get to go to you guys.. Yummy food and amazing people.

Friendly staff, brilliant harvest of apples as nature allows, a delectable selection of local produce, preserved products, and baked goods at pretty reasonable prices given that it is a farm store. The cafe and wine/cider tasting room is cozy, but folks are very friendly. The outdoor beer garden with a grill and entertainment venue was brilliant in the Sunday sunshine. All in all, a fantastic experience and that's why we've been going to Soons for 10 years.
