Know How It’s Grown
Our cattle are fed a high-grass diet.
We grow the following grasses on our farm, for our cattle…
Organic Timothy Grass
A perennial grass, a top choice for both pasture and renovation of pastures, first noticed in 1711 along the Piscataqua River in New Hampshire and named after Timothy Hanson, who first promoted it.
Bromus inermis A cool-season grass introduced into the United States from Hungary in 1884. Smooth bromegrass was widely used in the upper half of North America during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Popular again, this perennial grass, leafy and quite tall, can grow to a height of three to four feet.
Organic Fescue Grass
Festuca arundinacea Schreb. A deep-rooted, long-lived, sod-forming grass that spreads by short underground stems called rhizomes. Often used for conservation purposes, but is well suited as hay, silage, or pasture.
Organic Red Clover Grass
Trifolium pratense A wild plant belonging to the legume family, red clover is a perennial herb that commonly grows in meadows throughout Europe and Asia, and has now been naturalized to grow in North America. Cattle and other animals graze on red clover.
Organic Forage Oats Grass
A leafier variety of oats, this annual crop is used for quick forage yields or excellent grain. They provide excellent quality forage for grazing animals.
Sorghum bicolor var. drummondii Sorghums are warm weather crops that originally came from Africa. This annual, warm-season grass, if provided with adequate moisture and fertility, will rapidly produce high-quality forage during late spring and summer when cool-season forages are dormant.
