Our mission is to inspire you to dream more, reach higher, and live healthier!

Slide 2

We imagine a world where everyone homesteads, whether it's a small tomato plant in a pot on a downtown balcony, a first time pet, or a full fledged homestead farm with gardens, orchards, and numerous farm animals. A world where we are connected to the earth, for the health of ourselves, our families, our communities, and the earth itself.

Slide 2

Not all straw is the same. The Manitoba prairies are known to grow the best, brightest and most golden wheat straw. We only use Grade A quality wheat straw, sourced locally from Manitoban farmers.
Our commitment is to provide you with the most clean, consistent, and convenient 100% plant-based wheat straw solutions that are beneficial for you, your animals, your garden and the world you live in.
