Looking for mulch but don't have a farm in your backyard?
We have access to an abundance of straw and are happy to ship you some for your small garden. Larger gardens will benefit from sourcing locally.
This barley straw is not certified organic but comes from a local farm. There isn't a need to spray for pests and most of the local farms use chicken manure as the cheapest means to fertilize etc. There will be some foreign dried plant material as there always is with any straw bales.
Looking for something that has NO seeds? Check out our Blue Oyster Mushroom Straw Logs. They are made on an organic mushroom farm and pre-sterilized before they grow mushrooms on them.
1 Cubic Foot of straw doesn't weigh much but will easily mulch 6-12 plants depending on the depth of mulch and the size of the container. The straw is compressed when baled and we do not fluff it up before packaging. So 1 bag will hold more than you think.
2 Gallon Bag - Good for 1-3 plants
1/2 Cubic Foot Bag - Good for 5-10 Plants
1 Cubic Foot Bag - Good for 6-12 Plants

Free Bonus - This barley straw will have seeds in it still and you will have volunteer "Living Barley Mulch" in your containers. This living barley will move moisture around in your soil container and provide additional root exudates to feed the microlife.

Looks and smells great. I used it in the worm bin, garden and fabric pots.
works great. the 2 lb bag goes way further than you’d think.
This was far better than the stuff I found at my local lowes.
