Sepp Holzer’s Rye is an annual rye cultivar that Sepp Holzer uses extensively on his permaculture farm at a high elevation in Austria. It is sometimes called a perennial but only because it is allowed to self-seed. We seeded it in the spring and it only made a large rosette of leaves (grass) the first year, but it rapidly produced seed the second year. It can be spring seeded and mowed or grazed, or fall seeded. In the fall of 2022 we seeded a patch and it produced a wonderful amount of seed in 2023. The plants are about 1.4m tall and slender, with slim bearded heads. The seed is quite dark.
