Barley Straw Mulch


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. 

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. 

Approximate measurements: 

Large 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 

35 lb Box - This is a 30x18x18 box that we stuff full of barley straw so the weight may vary, but we will always get it as full as possible.

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. 

If you have been waiting to mulch until you get a round to it.... Well that day is today.

Add a box of Barley Straw to your shopping cart and take your garden to the next level.
