We are committed to growing and packaging the freshest, most nutritious forage product available. We seek to build cooperative relationships with animal owners, veterinarians and nutritionist by helping them transform animals from mere existence to a state of thriving. We strive to capture the best that nature can offer and to create a path to wholesome living through premium forage
We believe that the health of grazing and browsing animals starts first and foremost with quality forage. We also believe that nutrition attained from pasture-like forage is more beneficial to grazers and browsers than nutrients provided by processed feeds or dried forage. We believe that grazers and browsers can achieve maximum health and well-being when allowed to graze directly on pasture or when fed “living” forage that is naturally rich in yeast, enzymes, beneficial microorganisms and the by-products of their fermentation. We believe that premium forage coupled with good exercise and hygiene is a cornerstone to good animal health.

The History of Chaffhaye
In the 1920’s, the British Royalty sent many horses around the world. In those days, the horses were fed the local feed of each host country, sometimes wreaking havoc on the respiratory and digestive systems of the animals. After one particularly bad episode, nutritionists were commissioned to develop a consistent feed product that could accommodate the horses’ rigorous travel schedule.
Coming to America
Nearly 25 years ago, an operation was established in the United States to grow and package dust-free, premium- grade forage called Chaffhaye. The developers of Chaffhaye located its pastures near the remote high desert town of Dell City, Texas. With its ideal climate, an abundance of water, and fertile soil, it turned out to be one of the premier growing regions for forage in all of America.
Today, we are proud to operate a family owned, state-of-the-art facility that has become the leading producer of premium fresh chopped, bagged forage in the U.S. Our goal is to cultivate and produce the finest all-natural forage product on the market, elevating the performance and well-being of horses, ruminants, and other grazers.
