Using inorganic straw on no dig farm
(Puddin Foot Farm, Idaho)
I have a small organic farm that I would like to put into no-dig/till, but have not been able to find any naturally grown straw...I have heard stories of other farmers trying mulching with non-organic straw and had plants die, also I feel like it isnt fair to our CSA members due to we advertise 100% organic on the farm.
I can access organic Alfalfa, but I undertand it wont work as well. Do you have any ideas?
PS. At the momment I have no room to grow my own straw or I would. That would be my plan down the line.
