The Great Marsh in the Winter

Haystacks on the marsh

Below are haystacks that are on display in Newbury, Massachusetts.  Salt hay was cut in the summer and stacked on staddles (cedar posts driven into the ground) and dried in the winter and collected.  Salt hay is still harvested in the area, but it is baled.  Hay stacks were used for at 300 years before tractors and hay-balers arrived.  You can read more about it in this blog post.
