Cheap and Sweet Clover don't go together well. It's a tiny seed and covers a lot of ground. So it fetches a high price. A good plant for the bees though if it'll grow in your area. You will get a couple of blooms off of it, first yellow then white. Pretty cool!
I have one yard located on a deer hunting club where the guy that runs it takes an interests in about anything and everything living. He loves having the bees around and offers the same. Whatever I want planted he gets. I've spent a fair amount of time checking out the seed available to the hunters and there are many. So I ask for plants that benefit us both, for the bees and other wildlife around.
Problem has been for the most part that our rain has been off for quite a long time now. And it has been terrible, the amount of money those guys have spent in seed only to have it fail because of the lack of rain.
I suppose I would advise the same, talk to the farmer and see what his goals are and work together to meet both of your needs.
