So I have been wondering about the value of sunflowers as a major crop. They can be fed to both chickens and milk goats for better quality egg and milk AND they can be used a source of both pollen and nectar, even during a dearth.
Just the tip of an iceberg of a plan...I have 40 acres that is being reclaimed by the gravel company that extracted from it a couple years back. Initially they are going to plant fescue orchard grass and white clover, which is perfect for a hay or forage material, but on down the line I am trying to figure of good multi acre crops to plant that might have a nice dual purpose like clover.
I thought I would through out this idea to see if there were similar ones or existing examples.
