October 2021 Soft Orchard Grass Report
The 2021 Ultra Premium Soft Orchard Grass we have in stock is currently a second cut.
Here is the report on what we have in stock:
Overall Rating: 8/10
Harvest: Second cut of Orchard Grass with a very slight amount of Alfalfa in it, it was harvested in August of 2021.
Location: Northern California
Color: Blue Green
Stems/Stalks: There are no noticeable stems to speak of.
Leaves: Made up of mostly long, full leaves.
Seed Heads/Flowers: None
Leaf Crush: Minimal
Weeds: We noticed a little bit of Alfalfa in this, this is fairly normal for Orchard Grass as it is typical for our farmer to transition an Alfalfa field over to Orchard and provide an Orchard/Alfalfa blend, we always request the fields that were transitioned a long time ago and have as little Alfalfa in them as possible.
Brown Leaf: Little to none.
Summary: This year's Soft Orchard Grass is a great example of what Soft Orchard Grass should be. It has a nice full leaf structure with almost no leaf crush. The only reason that it does not get a 10/10 is the little brown leaf scattered throughout and because of the a small amount of Alfalfa that was found.
