Gladstone, N.J. – July 23, 2019 – Monmouth at the Team’s management is pleased to announce the return of Eastern Hay as a sponsor for the popular boutique hunter/jumper horse show. A favorite for many regional competitors, Monmouth at the Team will be held at Hamilton Farm, the former training grounds of the U.S. Equestrian Team (USET) and the current home of the USET Foundation, Aug. 12-19. Since 2016, Eastern Hay has served as the exclusive hay, grain and shavings provider for the event and returns to sponsor the $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby, the feature class on Aug.13.

Owner Chris Johnson’s family founded a family-run dairy farm in 1923. Around 40 years ago, the family changed their focus to hay production and service. Today, Eastern Hay supplies their top-notch, hay, grain and shavings to prestigious equestrian facilities nationwide and worldwide.

Unlike many other dealers, Eastern Hay produces a portion of the hay they sell. Because they have the heritage of generations of farming, they understand what goes into growing quality forage. No chemicals are used to cure their hay, nor do they purchase treated hay. Johnson is committed to maintaining a level of excellence in both their products and customer service.
