Buffering and pollinator habitat
We have buffered our alfalfa field with a pollinator habitat mix of six grasses and twenty-four forbes/legumes. This buffer provides significant natural habitat for pollinators, beneficial insects and wildlife, while benefiting the production of the hay field. We recently had the NRD plant 990 trees, bushes and shrubs into the buffer.
Our alfalfa is grown on the acres we are transitioning toward USDA Organic Certification. Our seed is non-GMO, certified organic. Our fields are registered on FieldWatch/Driftwatch.
This year we will be hosting bee hives from Ruwe Bee Farm.
