Our Tortoise Forage mix was inspired by customer David Sewart. This mix includes a wide variety of grasses palatable and nutritious for tortoises. A combination of warm-season and cool-season grasses, this mix is designed to thrive in most areas of the U.S. where tortoises enjoy basking in the sunlight and grazing on grass. All species in this mix are endophyte-free and safe for tortoises. This mix produces a pasture that will contain approximately:

10% Buffalograss

10% Big Bluestem

10% Western Wheatgrass

10% Tall Fescue (endophyte free)

10% Bermudagrass

10% Orchardgrass

10% Little Bluestem

10% Blue Grama

10% Sheep Fescue

10% Creeping Red Fescue

Note that due to legal restrictions, Bermudagrass cannot be shipped to Utah with the exception of Washington County. Mixes shipped to Utah will not contain Bermudagrass.

In an effort to help our customers visualize the finished product, note that the percentages listed above are what you can expect the stand to contain once established. For the contents of this seed mix by weight, please contact us to request a digital copy of the seed tag.
