I was at the local feed store buying corn meal and was looking for organic lawn fertilizer that was alfalfa based but they didn't have any. The person helping me sd the only alfalfa they had was bags of alfalfa pellets for cattle and horse food. Would this be a good lawn and garden fertilizer and spraying on blackstrap molasses diluted w/ water?

Yes, i use alfalfa based pelletized rabbit feed and horse feeds all the time in my sustainable farming program.

Happy Gardening!

Any Purina Feed store have access to the Bradfeild Organics line. The Bradfeild fertilizer is an alfalfa based soil food.

I use alfalfa pellets (bagged as rabbit food) as a fertilizer on occasion. If you use pellets, you should moisten them with water after you apply. That causes them to swell up and fall apart. Otherwise other critters might come along and take the pellets away.
