I have a neighbor farmer who has cut an old pasture in the past and baled it. We were glad to have it cut, he was happy for the bales. He raises some cattle on the side.
He will continue to cut it, but I wanted to seed it for bee forage throughout the summer.
Is there any cover crop that would be good for the bees, such as yellow clover, buckwheat, alfalfa, etc., that would also be good for the farmer who would cut it after the blooms are done. I know most things like alfalfa, are less nutritious after going to bloom. But would it not make good feed anyways for a few head he keeps on the side?
I can get him to plant anything I want, but wanted him to benefit also.
