Our is Ribgrass (plantain), a popular mineral rich forage herb with deep, drought tolerant, soil conditioning roots. It's also frost tolerant and used in diverse grazing mixtures to lift trace elements from deep within the soil profile.

Chicory is one of the more reliable herb species, and will grow on most soil types. Once established its deep tap root is very useful for improving soil structure.

A photo from our Game Cover Trials, Fennel planted alongside Maize hopefully to attract Partridge, also looking at if the Fennel strip can be topped for weed management and left in for a second year....🐦

Yes vetch is good! Will probably also add birds foot trefoil in the same underrated category very drought resistant and natural anthelmintic like sainfoin. I buy all my seeds from who are a mine of information.

Forage Rape is a quick growing, protein rich leafy brassica for winter forage. As well as highly digestible Hobson, we're now stocking a newer variety called Interval, a hybrid of forage rape and kale, which offers very high yields.
