Straw is usually a by-product of small grain production. After the grains (oats, barley, wheat, rye, triticale, spelt) are harvested, growers may harvest the residual plant material from the grains as straw. Straw is often desired as a mulch (as opposed to hay) as it usually contains few weed seeds, has wide leaves and hollow stems to provide a good insulating and weed suppressing mulch. Oat straw is usually the most desirable as it has some of the widest leaves
and dries to a nice golden color. When buying straw, you should be aware that some of the grain may come in the bale and germinate when you use it as mulch.

Most small grains in Maine and the Northeast are harvested in late July or August. That is probably the best time to source straw, even if you don’t plan to use it until the spring garden season. High prices and low availability in the spring make sourcing good quality straw difficult.

Since a large amount of straw now comes from either Aroostook County or Canada, many growers consider buying in bulk and splitting a tractor trailer load of straw with numerous other growers as a means to reduce cost.
