About Us

Sunshine Lane Hay

Sunshine Lane Hay is a full-service hay and feed supplier focused on the Florida equine market! Our Mission Statement is "Animals First"! Sunshine Lane Hay is owned by Celeste Schiffner and her brother Jesse Schiffner. They are experts in the industry, having owned and worked with horses for decades. After moving with her horses to South Florida, Celeste struggled to find quality hay and feed for her animals in the area. Florida hay has very low nutrient content and can lead to colic. Jesse and Celeste reached out and began to develop relationships with Northern distributers. Sunshine Lane Hay was born out of the need for great hay and feed options in an area with so few. Today Sunshine Lane Hay provides their quality hay and feed options across the state of Florida.

Sunshine Lane Hay is one of Florida’s premier equine supply companies. Horse owners have created a demand for Alfalfa, Orchard/Alfalfa and Timothy/Alfalfa Hay.  These types of hay are not grown in Florida or anywhere in the Southern USA. Our Hay is always NON-GMO, blister beetle free, and of the highest quality year-round.

Sunshine Lanes Hay has operated for 15 years, and has developed an extensive network of hay suppliers, becoming a respected distributor throughout South and Central Florida.  Our strong relationships with feed and hay suppliers ensures that our customers enjoy premium hay supply at competitive prices. 


In addition to hay supply, Sunshine Lane Hay offers an exclusive premium product range. Custom mixed Grass/Alfalfa percentages are available on request.  Many horse farms have specific preferred mixes, and our team will work to accommodate our customers’ specific needs. Reduce the need for supplements by providing your animals with hay that includes the nutrients they need with a taste and texture they enjoy.

We also carry some specialty feed, including Cool Stance Copra which is a unique horse feed low in Non-Structural Carbohydrate (NSC) and high in digestible energy content. Cool Stance is packed with ‘cool’ energy from coconut oil and fiber from coconut meal. Cool Stance copra is suitable for most horses and can be fed to maintain a natural state of gut health and insulin sensitivity, promoting normal insulin metabolism. Alfalfa hay is high in protein making it an excellent choice for nutrient rich hay in the Florida region. Our Orchard/Alfalfa blend is a softer hay, which can lead to less waste. Our Timothy/Alfalfa is one of the most common nutritionally balanced options, making it our bestselling hay.

New shipments arrive weekly from our indoor protected storage sheds, ensuring that your animals are getting fresh, high quality hay and feed. Our hay and feed are stored in these ventilated sheds to avoid mold, rot, and dust.

We distribute to farms, ranches, and stables across South and Central Florida including the following areas:

Sarasota, Ruskin, Palmetto, Bradenton, Port Charlotte, Myakka, Arcadia, Punta Gorda, Ft. Myers, Naples, Cape Coral.
