Please note that if something says "sold out" next to the price, we do not have it. Sometimes the website lets you put it in your cart, but that doesn't mean we have any left.

We can sometimes fill additional packets, so check back next week if an item you want is sold out. Your order will be processed more quickly if you do not try to buy "pre-purchase" items.

What to plant for the animals?

Fodder crops are selected for fast growth, high nutrition, and availability in quantity.

They will not be as uniform or as tender (or bolt-resistant) as named varieties selected for garden use.
Animals don't care if the kale is tough, but they do care for (and seek out) the highest levels of nutrients. The items in our Grains section can be harvested and feed to animals, or used for grazing, See caution for Sorghum.
The items in the Compost Crops Section are used for grazing, hay, or fodder too.
