Put 30 acres on the ground today... Is there any better smell then fresh cut alfalfa? I swear, if there was a deodorant called "Fresh Cut" that smelled like that, I would probably use it!! :D

Only thing better would be if it was in my field.

Smells even better when it's in the barn.

One year our alfalfa was still a little too wet when it was baled & it caramelized. Woah!!! So vile it turned me off fresh cut for years; I was clearly traumatized. But the cows loved it, similar to how a burnt marshmallow is always better.

Never smelt it. But if it smells better than fresh Bermuda grass or plowed dirt I might roll around in it .

Something amazing about mowing Alfalfa all day finishing up in the cool of the evening parking the tractor on the edge of a field and having a minute to look over what you have mowed and taking in the scent!
