Hay in Stardew Valley is used as animal food to feed your animals. When your animals are indoors, you will need to have hay to feed them. If it’s not raining, you can always send your animals outside to eat grass and you won’t have to use your hay.

How to Get Hay

To store hay, you will first need to build a silo, otherwise, you’ll have to keep it in a chest or your inventory.

To get hay in Stardew Valley, you can cut grass with the scythe or you can purchase it. Once you have a silo, any hay you collect from cutting grass will appear inside of your silo.

If you want to purchase hay, go to Marnie's Ranch (just south of your farm) and buy hay for 50g each.
