Forage First® fields, from alfalfa to pasture mixes and more, have long been a staple on farms across the countryside. As are family ties that bind and inspire us. Hard times, like many are experiencing, call for families and communities to come together. This video is a recent example of families coming together to help a Forage First family farm in need.
There are countless examples like this, and we’d like to celebrate them, as well as support these farm families by donating forage seed. For this effort, we’ve created our Forage First® Families First initiative.
We aim to collect and commend stories of communities helping growers in need, and connect with dairy and beef farms that would most benefit from donated forage seed for use next spring. Simply submit the form below for consideration, or share a story on Facebook or Twitter using #foragefirstfamily and tag @lacrosseseed. We also encourage neighbors, friends, and our customers to submit on behalf of a grower they may know. We will award a select number of farm families certificates for $500 of Forage First seed (redeemable through a local La Crosse Seed dealer).
