There is a growing market in the UK for domestic and commercial free range poultry grass seed products. All commercial free range birds must have access to outside forage during daylight hours. EC legislation requires that all poultry must have continuous daytime access to open runs which are ‘mainly covered with vegetation’ and with a maximum stocking density of 2,500 birds per hectare (1 bird per 4 square metres).

Our Diverse Poultry Pasture grass seed is based on short growing, hardwearing grass species to fulfill that basic requirement along with legumes and deep rooting herbs to increase the potential intake of protein, minerals and nutrients from the forage.
Not only will this permanent pasture grass seed mixture introduce a wider range of leaf matter into the diet, the more diverse habitat will attract a higher number of invertebrates for the free range bird to consume.

The sward will generally provide good ground cover and a very stable, robust pasture but must be periodically rested in the growing season to allow for plant regeneration.

Sow at the higher rate for faster and more even establishment.
