Tortoise Forage Mix

Seeding Rate: 3 lbs. / 1000 sqft
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% Big Bluestem
10% Western Wheatgrass
10% Tall Fescue (endophyte free)
10% Little Bluestem
10% Blue Grama
10% Sheep Fescue
10% Creeping Red Fescue
