File a small claims. You can even add the filing fees to what is owed in most cases.

I would think that this is a good time to start.
Have you gone to the guy and demanded that he make it right?
If he does not, I would seriously ruin his local reputation by talking it all over town.

Where in GA are you? I've got a good source for hay and he'll deliver.....not sure how far though.

That's really why I get my hay on the first cutting.....had 20 round rolls delivered back in June. I really don't want to be moving hay this time of year.....

I'm going through hay a little faster this year.....hope I've got enough till spring....

Word of mouth about you getting stiffed is usually more of a threat then court. Let the word get out what said hay supplier did, and he won't be selling much hay next year. Around here your word is worth more than a signature and not many folks want that ruined. Ex... We looked at a horse, wanted it, wouldn't have the cash till a few weeks later. Seller calls a mutual aqauntince, we checked out lol, he told us to come pick him up the next day. Seller wasn't even home when I went to get him. Ahhh yes some people still do have a good name.

I don't recall ever seeing a farmer delivering hay or livestock even look at the check that I gave them. They fold it and put it in their pocket. People making their living at farming have to have a good reputation or they will not survive in the business.

I guess I've been lucky. I've handed my hay guys cash over the years and they have always been good for it. My only lament is I find good hay at a reasonable price and it's always a senior making it. I've had a few retire on me sending me into a frantic search. The guy I have now has nice hay at a good price but again he's older. He might last 20 years, he might last 2. I also have another local man I get my square bales from and he is in his mid 90's. Still mowing and baling. Beautiful hay! I guess it's the years of practice. I guess my round bale guy is a spring chicken at around 65 yrs. No problem handing him cash and having him hold bales for me. But I can only truck 2 at a time and then I pay him for 2 ahead. If I could afford 12 at a time I suspect he would deliver.
