Walpole, NH (February 14, 2023) – The Cheshire County Conservation District is again offering farmers the opportunity to purchase bulk seed orders for Spring 2023. The Spring Seed Sale, a partnership between the CCCD and King’s AgriSeed, enables orders less than 1500 lbs. to avoid shipping costs - a benefit the CCCD is proud to offer in support of local farms!
This year, CCCD will be offering two order opportunities:
Early order for frost seeding: Orders must be placed by March 6th and will be available for pick-up at the CCCD Office (11 Industrial Park Dr. Walpole, NH) on March 15th
Suggested seeds for frost seeding, include: Red Clovers, White Clovers, 3 Way Clover Mix, Orchard Grass, Timothy, Kentucky Bluegrass
Frost seeding is broadcasting seed on top of the ground in early spring when we are going through freeze thaw cycles. The freezing and thawing opens small cracks in the soil that then close back up providing good seed to soil contact. Recommended seeding rate is 5 to 8 pounds per acre. Contact CCCD with any questions!
Regular bulk order: Orders must be placed by April 3rd and will be available for pick-up at the CCCD Office (11 Industrial Park Dr. Walpole, NH) on April 14th
A copy of the 2023 catalog can be found here!
If you have any questions, need assistance in placing your order, or would prefer to place your order over the phone or by email please call 603-756-2988 x3011 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once orders have been processed, seed sale customers will receive a confirmation email with their order total as well as payment instructions. Pick up information will be made available as soon as possible.
The 2023 Seed Sale order form and catalog can also be accessed on the CCCD website.
