This Wheat Straw is grown by a local farmer in Surry Co, NC. Dimensions are approximately 36″ x 16″ x 18″, but can slightly differ in size due to the baling process. Simply cut the strings and shake apart to apply as a layer of mulch in your garden (works well around strawberry and tomato plants). Can be used to aid in seeding your lawn and in mushroom cultivation. Animals love it too! Chickens are attracted to it to scratch around, and the straw makes a great addition to their nesting boxes which can promote cleaner eggs. Cats, bunnies and other animals like Straw because it creates a clean and cozy space for them to rest.
