If you're out in the country, there should be feed stores around where you can get wheat straw from. Check the phone book, otherwise order online or through the mail from the vendors mentioned above.

If you can shred it, I'd say buy a bale for 3-4 dollars.

If you can't shred it (and if you don't need tons of it :smile:  )  Buy from a Shroomery vendor. 

Myco Supply or Tenn. Stud will treat you right. 

Any Shroomery vendor will.

The addition of a little manure is nice too! 

If you buy a full bale, look for straw that has as little green in it as possible.  You want the straw to have a nice golden color. 

The greener it is the newer, meaning its not as dry and its sometimes tough to pasturize.

If you need any help, just PM me.

I think mycosupply is cheaper, but if your getting shipped substrate...why a shitty one like straw? Just go for the poo and get it sent...soooo much better.

You don't have a horse racing track or some kind of horse stables anywhere around?

Its not alot easier to work with at all. Take it from someone who went from buying straw locally to buying poo online..



So much better:
