Alfalfa is one of the world’s oldest domesticated crops.
These plants can re-grow up to 11 times a year depending on their geographic location. They generally reach up to 3 feet in height and have a root system that can grow over 15 feet into the ground. Alfalfa can be turned into bales of hay, pellets for feed or just used for grazing animals.
The alfalfa plant is not often thought to be used for more than just feeding animals, but it is extremely useful to our environment, with a wide range of benefits, such as rewards to crop rotations, wildlife habitat, soil health and more!
