Galusha Farm in Warrenville, IL has been a family hay and straw producer in the area for over 30 years. They have extensive knowledge on the growth of their hay and are passionate about ensuring every harvest is healthy and extremely nutritious. Galusha Farm always has available hay and straw on site for sale. They harvest 3-4 cuts every spring and fall and have a storage space for the hay that they can manage the temperature to keep it crisp and fresh. They never run out of hay to sell – not even in a drought year!
We offer the best in pasture boarding, with a very large lean-to and a very large barn always open for shelter in all weather conditions, 24/7, 365 days a year. Our board comes with infinite turn-out, plenty of exercise, plenty of hay access at all times, and the opportunity for your horse to act like a real horse - carefree and happy ... day-in and day-out, with the freedom to roam 11 acres of 2 managed pastures. This is the very best care a horse can get, because it is natural.
Galusha Farm is fortunate enough to have 10,000 acres of County Forest Preserves and Fermilab to trail ride in. All within a short ride from the barn. Herrick Lake Forest Preserve is 1/4 mile down the road. It's like nothing else to hit the trails and see all types of wildlife such as coyote, deer, or wild turkey. When you board your horse with us, you are welcome to come by the farm anytime, from sun-up to sunset. We welcome you to come visit and ride your horse as frequently as you desire.
If you are renting/trail riding/lessons etc, we will not allow you on the trails or arenas if the weather is not good, such as too hot or too wet for safe footing.
