Organic Grasses

Organic Pasture and Hay Grasses


As an organic producer, your hay and/or pasture grass seed has to work for you. It has to be adapted to the purpose, place, and management you have in mind.

First, you need to select the right species (or mixture of species). 

  • For a high-quality, productive companion with alfalfa or clover we suggest Organic Orchardgrass and Organic Tall Fescue.
  • If you need a long-lasting ground cover for grazing, we carry sod-forming grasses like Organic Smooth Bromegrass.
  • Annual ryegrass works well as an alternative to oats as a nurse crop for alfalfa or as a quick growing emergency forage crop.
We also have organic grass mixes that combine the advantages of several species in one bag.

Whatever your grass need, Albert Lea Seed can supply what you're looking for. Please call us or email seedhouse@alseed.com and we'll be happy to try to answer any specific questions you may have.
