DETAILS
 
Alfalfa
High in protein and minerals, Alfalfa hay is a high-energy feed source for cattle, horses and sheep. Dairy cows in particular have much to benefit from the high rate of protein contained in Alfalfa, sometimes exceeding 25% of mass. Also well-suited to younger animals or those with greater protein needs.
 
Barley
Barley is similar in profile to Oats, but makes a more suitable source of forage for those seeking lower energy content. Soft and highly digestible, Barley can be high in sugar and should be used carefully if concerned about colic in horses and othe animals. Should be crushed is used as a feed in ruminant mixes.
 
Clover, Red
Red Clover is suitable as forage for cattle and young stock. The high sugar content is especially ideal for fattening, but should be avoided if colic is a concern. Monitor consumption carefully, or avoid feed completely, to horses. Additionally, there is evidence indicating a correlation between red clover consumption and infertility in sheep.
 
Corn
Corn is high in starch, and provides a good source of energy as a grain feed fo cattle, sheep, hogs, goats and chickens. If given to horses, be sure to keep an eye on consumption. It is advisable to crush kernels prior to feeding.
 
Fescue, Tall
Tall Fescue provides good forage as a pasture grass for cattle, sheep and horses. It is especially suited for winter grazing, and will withstand the stresses of trampling better than most other grasses.
 
Flax
Flax is suitable for nearly all livestock and poultry, and inclusion in the diet as a feed will help to boost the essential fatty acid content in meat. Will also help to improve quality and luster of coat.
 
Oats
Oats are high in fiber and low in starch and provide good balanced nutrition as a feed for cattle, hogs, sheep, goats, chicken and other livestock. Most commonly, oats are the traditional grain fed to horses due to its nutrition, palatability and digestability.
 
Orchardgrass
Orchardgrass makes an ideal everyday forage grass for a wide variety of livestock, including cattle, sheep, goats, horses and others. Easy to digest and cultivate, it makes a fine choice for hay, grazing and silage.
 
Peas, Field
hogs, poultry and other animals. Rich in both starches and protein, field peas provide a nice complement to many other livestock feed grains.
 
 
Ryegrass
Ryegrass is a suitable pasture grass for cattle and sheep and can also be used as a hay. Not suitable for horses, as evidence indicates excessive consumption may lead to staggers.
 
Timothy-grass
Timothy is a versatile grass that can be fed to cattle and horses as hay, and also provides suitabe forage as a pasture grass to sheep, cattle, goats and other animals. Also safe for other domestic animals including rabbits, guinea pigs and others.
 
Wheat
Wheat has greater protein content relative to other grains and as such can be used as a feed for cattle, hay for horses and as a pasture grass for sheep, cattle, goats and others. If using as a feed, use a coarse grind as finer grinds may cause digestive problems.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Q: How long will my seeds last?
A: Shelf life varies depending on the seed, but it ranges from 1-10 years dependent on the type of seed.  Herbs and Teas have a shelf life of 2-3 years, vegetables and fruits range from 5-7 years, and grains range from 7-10 years.   Store all seeds in a cool, dry, and dark location to maximize life. Do not freeze and do not expose to heat.

Q: Why should I use non-hybrid (open pollinated) rather than hybrid seeds?
A:
  • Better Nutrition – Commercial Produce lacks nutrition, research has shown.
  • Sustainable Gardening - Saving Seeds is only possible with open-pollinated seeds
  • Economic Security – In recessions and depressions, FOOD IS ECONOMIC SECURITY
  • Food Supply Independence – If food supplies are challenged, home gardening is freedom.
  • Crop Diversity – Participate in saving the original strains from extinction
  • Investment Hedge – Seeds are an excellent alternative investment to paper money, stocks and securities, even gold if the markets were to dive long-term.

A: UPS determines the shipping amount. The shipping cost will be added to your order once you place it.

A: We only ship to U.S. and Canada currently. Agricultural restrictions between countries make it very difficult to ship seeds.
 
Q: You DO ship to Canada?
A: Yes we do, however, Canada restricts some grains like wheat, barley and rye. We must provide replacements on some packs and some we cannot ship at all. Please see the list.
 
Q: What are Heirloom seeds?
A: Heirloom seeds are simply the oldest strains of open pollinated seeds. Varieties that were commonly grown during early periods of history. No one really agrees at what age a seed becomes 'heirloom'. Some say fifty years, others disagree. It is not necessary to have "heirloom" seeds for a survival or preparedness garden. Open pollinated seeds are what is required.
 
Q: What about variety replacements?
A: Due to ongoing seed shortages, seed varieties subject to change without notice. Replacements will be as close as possible and will be included in your order documentation.
 
Q: Do I get instructions or assistance?
A: Yes! When your product arrives, you will have access to the largest Organic Growing Guide on the internet for free, 24/7 information.
