Flack Farms, Inc. Award winning Hay and Shavings Supplier Supplier For the USA Flack Farms, Inc. Award winning Hay and Shavings Supplier Supplier For the USA
About Flack Farms, Inc. Flack Farms Inc. is owned by Steve and Lisa Flack and has been producing, buying, and marketing hay and straw for almost 25 years from our home in Indiana. We are a full-time hay production facility. They both attended Purdue University and worked in the crop protection industry for several years, where Steve became increasingly intrigued with forages and their role in the nutritional needs of livestock. We decided to make our own hay to feed our sheep flock and sell to others, and began by making small square bales. We quickly progressed to a large square baler to maximize the efficiency of our operation as our acreage and customer base grew. It was very gratifying to be able to work face-to-face with our end users and actually have flexibility in our marketing, as opposed to traditional row crop producers. We have continued to build those relationships through the years, while expanding, updating, and diversifying along the way.
Is It True That Flack Farms Was Honored As 2019 "FARM FAMILY" of the YEAR?

Is It True That Flack Farms Owns and Uses One of the Very FEW Steffen Bale Conversion Systems?
YES!! Several years ago we had the opportunity to purchase a Steffen Bale Conversion System that allows us to take our big square bales and cut them down into different sizes and weights to fit your specifications. We are now able to “make hay” year round in our building that is dedicated to housing and operating this incredible machine.

Is It True That Flack Farms Will Also Furnish Straw or Pine Shavings?
The convenience of getting an outstanding selection of straw or pine shavingsbedding, adds to Flack Farms amazing service. So many times, in rainy seasons, local bedding sources run low, but our clients can depend upon clean, first class bedding all year round and we are happy to add this to your orders. So….In addition to offering all cuttings, qualities, and sizes of hay bales, we can also source your straw needs and run those bales through the Steffen machine to cut them down to the size you prefer. Finally, we also sell different types of pine shavings to fit any livestock bedding need you may have.
Baled Straw: Flack Farms offers clean, fresh cut wheat, oat, and rye straw for use as livestock bedding. Our straw bales are compact and convenient, and are available in 4 different sizes
Chopped Straw: If you are looking for a bulk alternative to bagged bedding, chopped straw is a great choice. It is highly absorbent with low dust, and the smaller particle size makes it easy to sift out animal waste. This product is readily available year round and is bulk delivered in a walking floor trailer. An additional advantage is that chopped straw is more eco-friendly than pine shavings as no trees are destroyed in the production process
Pine Shavings: You may select from FINE flakes to LARGE flakes— This is a very popular product we offer that contains 1/2 large flake, 1/3 fine, and 1/3 blended shavings. The blended final product goes through a dust removal process. These shavings provide a soft bedding and are easy to clean. They are sold in a compressed 2.5 cubic foot bale that expands to 6.5 cubic feet.
