Ladybug Farms recently became the first USDA Certified Organic Hay Supplier in Georgia as part of the Georgia Organics 100 Farms Campaign. The hay is a fescue grass mix which has been amended with white clover and vetch to increase nutritional value. This hay is ideal for feeding to small herds of goats and sheep that are pursuing organic certification. It is also an excellent option for folks seeking a chemical and fertilizer free mulch in their vegetable garden beds as well as for making biodynamic compost.
