Quality Hay and Straw


Located in the Piedmont region of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Payne Hay and Straw has been the trusted hay provider throughout Virginia since 1980. What began with a love of farming grew into a farming operation of more than 2,000 acres serving the equestrian and farming communities from the horse country of Virginia to Florida.


Payne Hay and Straw is proud to offer a wide variety of hay including Alfalfa, Orchardgrass, Timothy, Teff, and Fescue.

The Farm


In the beautiful rolling hills of Northern Virginia just south of the District of Columbia you will find the picturesque Payne family farm. Fields of Alfalfa, Timothy and Orchardgrass paint the landscape from April to December as this father and son team work meticulously to harvest the finest hay in the region.


In early 2000, the Payne family purchased a neighboring dairy farm, Brandy Farm. They now use this land to store a majority of the hay that they harvest. They have retrofitted barns that once housed dairy cows into hay storage.


The farm neighbors Brandy Station where the largest cavalry battle of the Civil War, the Battle of Brandy Station, took place. The Payne family has found Civil War relics on the property such as musket bullets, bullet shells and even old horseshoes.
