Harvest: We tend to select 2nd, 3rd or even 4th cuttings for our hays
Location: Mountain Grown
Color: Dark Forest Green
Stems/Stalks: Thin abundant stems, (Alfalfa is a vine)
Leaves: Small elliptical leaves, should be maintaining attachment to the stem.
Seed Heads/Flowers: Can be nonexistent, especially in later harvests. Flowers should have purple petals.
Leaf Crush: Minimal, however because of the hay conditioning process some leaf loss is normal.
Weeds: No weeds, this is usually very easy for us to obtain.
Dust: No Dust (as in dirt or debris)
Our goal is to offer the highest quality hay, however, all naturally grown and harvested hay holds minor imperfections such as dust, weeds, leaf crush, and brown leaf. The ideal version of Alfalfa Hay would have none of these.
