I wanted to post a shot of what a typical hay field looks like:

This wasn’t the exact field that I had a chance to work on but the rectangular bales are the same.

One Amishman told me that a lot of Amish are leaning towards the rounded bales.

You can maneuver these with one of the mini-forklift machines that a lot of Amish farmers have.  I can’t recall the official name right now, but they have a place to sit with a protective cage around it, and the two-pronged lifting device that can easily stab through the center of one of the massive bales and cart it around the barnyard.
