Welcome to Buy a Bale, supporting our rural communities in drought. This campaign is providing meaningful support for farmers by delivering hay and other essential items to farmers who have no feed left for their cattle.

All donations to our campaign have a four fold effect. Some hay is donated, some we buy, so we’re feeding a hay farmer and his family. Some of our truckies are donating their time and diesel, some loads we’re paying for, so we’re feeding truckies and their families. Donations towards our Farmers card inject immediate cash into the rural towns, city cash going bush. Finally what hay we deliver saves farmers cash that they can continue to spend on other items.

Australia, donating to Buy a Bale is helping not just farmers but their communities and so many more people. Thank you on behalf of our farmers for your support.
