Mixed Pasture Blends:

The following range of pasture seed blends has been designed for the growing group of clients who are for a variety of reasons, looking for a alternative to the standard rye /clover/ pasture herb mixes. These reasons may include feeding different stock types, extra performance on dry land farms, increased stock health, organic farming to name but a few.

We have designed these mixes in conjunction with Mr David Musgrave a recognised expert in the field of mixed pasture blends.

Cultivars that are used in these mixes can be purchased as bare seed options currently making them suitable for organic systems.

Please feel free to browse through these and when you’ve found the one that most suits your needs you can contact us.
