The bales are brown and dry, which can be a bit hard to work with, but will make excellent bedding for animals and structures. You can use nearly any tool to cut the bales down into smaller components or chop them into any size pieces you desire. The dry and brown appearance of the bales will go well with any type of decorations that you may want to add to your garden.

Fields of organic, perennial crops may not be sufficient to provide us with safe and reliable food, but our successful efforts in organic farming can be attributed to the landscape management techniques we use in modern agriculture. These methods strategically promote the growth of beneficial organisms in the soil and on the plants, as well as involve practices that maintain natural patterning in the vegetation. With this kind of cultivation practice, we can produce more nutritious foods with less suffering for animals and humans.
