New Country Organics Hemp Bedding is a 5 cu. ft. bale comprised of the chopped stalks of the industrial field crop. Hemp is perfect for those sensitive to allergens and dust found in alternative animal bedding. To optimize absorptive qualities, hemp should be misted with water prior to use. For chicken coops, one bale of hemp will cover an 8’ x 8’ area. For horses, three bales will cover a 12’ x 12’ area. Hemp is very compostable and is great for adding to gardens to overwinter and add more natural nutrition to your soil.
Hemp undergoes a natural oxidation process during the drying period that can result in darkening of the finished product. The coloration can range from tan to dark brown.
