Discover the exceptional benefits of our 50.0 lbs Hairy Vetch Seed. This versatile seed variety is a valuable asset for various applications, including erosion control, cover cropping, organic farming, and livestock forage. With its remarkable characteristics, Hairy Vetch offers a natural and sustainable solution for multiple agricultural needs.

Erosion Control and Cover Crop: Hairy vetch is renowned for its ability to provide excellent ground cover, particularly during the fall, winter, and spring seasons. Its dense growth helps prevent soil erosion and protects vulnerable areas. This makes it an ideal choice for use in no-till systems, where its high biomass production enhances soil stability and reduces erosion risks.

Soil Improvement and Nitrogen Fixation: One of the remarkable qualities of Hairy Vetch is its capacity to improve soil tilth and fix significant amounts of nitrogen. By establishing a symbiotic relationship with nitrogen-fixing bacteria, this seed variety effectively converts atmospheric nitrogen into a readily available form that subsequent crops can utilize. This natural nitrogen source boosts soil fertility, reduces the need for synthetic fertilizers, and supports the long-term health of your agricultural ecosystem.

Organic Farming Advantage: Hairy vetch is highly valued in organic farming systems. Its nitrogen-fixing ability eliminates the reliance on chemical nitrogen inputs, promoting sustainability and reducing environmental impact. Furthermore, when grown as a cover crop, Hairy Vetch forms a weed-suppressing mulch, minimizing weed competition and creating a favorable environment for organically grown crops.

Livestock Benefits: Hairy vetch boasts a high crude protein content, making it an excellent choice for livestock feed. Whether utilized as hay, silage, or grazing material, Hairy Vetch provides a nutrient-rich forage option that supports animal health and productivity. Its palatability and digestibility make it a preferred choice among farmers and ranchers.

Invest in our 50.0 lbs Hairy Vetch Seed and unlock the potential of this exceptional seed variety for erosion control, organic farming, and livestock management. Harness its soil-improving properties, nitrogen-fixing capabilities, and versatile applications to achieve sustainable agricultural practices and maximize the productivity of your land.

Shipping Policy

At Standish Milling, we're committed to delivering your products in a timely and cost-effective manner. Here's some information to help you understand our shipping costs.

UPS Ground Shipping

We primarily use UPS Ground for our shipping. The cost of shipping is calculated based on the weight of your order and your location. UPS Ground offers reliable, cost-effective delivery for packages under 150 lbs.

You can estimate your shipping costs by adding items to your cart and entering your shipping address. Our system will automatically calculate the shipping costs before you proceed to checkout.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) Shipping

For larger orders over 150 lbs, we use Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping. LTL shipping is a cost-effective way to ship large orders by combining shipments from multiple customers.

Here's how it works:

  1. You get a quote: When you add items to your cart that total more than 150 lbs, our system will provide an LTL shipping quote. This quote is based on the total weight of your order and your shipping address.

  2. Your order is shipped: Once your order is ready, we send it to the shipping carrier who combines it with other shipments going in the same direction. This process allows us to save on shipping costs and pass those savings onto you.

  3. Your order is delivered: The carrier will deliver your order to your specified address. Keep in mind that delivery times for LTL shipments may be longer than UPS Ground shipments due to the consolidation process.
