Freedom! is a new variety of red clover developed by the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station and released in 2001. It is a medium red clover variety adapted to the same general region as Kenland, i.e., Kentucky and the central clover region of the United States.

Freedom!—so named because of its freedom from pubescence (non-glandular hairs)—was developed to permit faster drying and to reduce dustiness of hay. It is especially recommended for hay because it is less dusty than other varieties. Less dustiness should result in improved air quality that may be associated with reduced health hazard for both humans and livestock.
