On the Record: 

Mary (Chicken Owner And Farmer From Michigan)


"The farmer crew is very happy with the hemp bedding. They are primarily using it for our chickens, because they have been trying to find ways to keep the eggs as clean as possible with minimal resource utilization. They said the eggs and coop are the cleanest they have ever been, and the bedding has been a significant factor."

Jill (Chicken Owner From Illinois)

"We just completed our first winter using hemp and will never use anything else!
