Our Beginning

About Eastern Hay

The history of Eastern Hay Corporation dates back to 1923 when the company began as a dairy farm, which was then known as Heinchon Dairy. Heinchon was later renamed Eastern Hay Corporation when the company quit dairy farming to begin hay production in Pawling, N.Y. Today, the focus is mainly on the production, brokering and distribution of hay, bedding products and feed for the equine market.

Chris Johnson, the current owner and a member of the Heinchon family, has spent his lifetime learning about farming. He shares his vast knowledge with his three sons and staff, enabling them to work together towards producing and sourcing the best quality products all year round. Throughout the past three decades that Eastern Hay has been producing and distributing hay for sale, they have been consistently successful servicing some of the most demanding and prestigious equine facilities around the world.
