Boil hay and then drink the water? Essence of hay, vitamin d? Any thoughts?

Fresh hay that sits outside in the sun accumulates vitamin D. Could humans boil the hay, remove it, and then drink the hay infused water as a source of vitamin d?

    Why go to all that trouble when the supplement is available in stores?

    Vitamin D is destroyed by heat, so boiling the hay would destroy the vitamin.

    Sunlight doesn't contain Vitamin D.  Getting sun on your skin helps your body manufacture it.  Hay is dead!  It doesn't do photosynthesis.  The sun does nothing to hay except to dry it out.
