Absorbs 4x Its Own Weight

Hemp is 75% cellulose and is a natural absorbent. The perfect material to keep your animal dry and happy. Yes, that’s right — four times its weight, compared to 2X for wood and paper products. This means you need to clean and change bedding less often.

Reduces Odors

When hemp bedding is used, urine goes straight to the bottom, keeping the surface clean and dry. Odors become trapped under the surface, reducing ammonia and other odors much better than wood chips or sawdust. Reducing odor helps control flies and makes a more pleasing environment for you and your animals. Perfect for a barn full of horse stalls or your backyard chicken coop!

Low Dust Means Improved Air Quality

Dust compromises the quality of air for your animal and can easily lead to breathing complications. Hemp bedding offers a low dust environment, crucial for the health of your animals. It has air pockets and excellent heat retention properties when compared to sawdust or pine shavings.

Biodegradable = Better for Animals and Planet

Hemp bedding degrades faster than most animal care products such as wood shavings and sawdust. Perfect for your garden compost. Support sustainable farming practices and help create a larger demand for Hemp. The earth and economy will thank you for it.

    I've been using Old Dominion hemp bedding for over a year with my horses and they love it! I especially appreciate how absorbant it is. It really keeps the odor down in the stalls.

  2. Allison Buckley

    Can't say enough about how superior this hemp bedding is to traditional pine shavings. We switched our goats from pine to hemp and I will never go back. Their small barn is noticeably less dusty. More importantly, the absorbency can't be beat. Our goats do not care for the snow one bit, and we live where it snows quite often. They spend snow days entirely in the barn and the hemp bedding far outlasts any other bedding we've tried.

    Have purchased multiple times. Use in my chicken coop. Still as dusty as wood shavings but absorbency tends to be better in my opinion. Miracle plant.

  6. Robynne (verified owner)

    The best choice for chicken coop bedding! Low dust, highly absorbent. The price is also reasonable and the shipping costs are average.

  7. Susan Phelan (verified owner)

    I really like hemp bedding for my chickens. I can do the deep litter method with this very well. Old Dominion shipped this very quickly even in times when shipping is tight. My chickens like the hemp in their coop especially when they jump down off of the roost in the mornings and have that comfortable landing on the hemp. The hay I used to use would slide on the floor or compress so that they landed hard. I like to keep the ladies - and old Louie happy, especially first thing in the morning when they get ready to lay those eggs.

  10. James Bobbitt (verified owner)

    We are going on week 2 without changing the bedding in our rat colonies. By this time time using pine shavings the amonia smell is terrible. Also the hemp absorbs alot more liquid than pine. 100% satisfaction from me and my rats!

  11. Louise Bown

    We love it! It keeps the smell down In our chicken coop and our chickens enjoy how soft it is. We will definitely buy more.

    I switched to this bedding 2 year ago. It's saved me so much time and money. My African soft furs love it and do so do I.

  17. Robynne (verified owner)

    This is the Best Bedding for chickens by far! It's the best absorbing bedding I have used and I have tried many other options, it creates minimum dust and after use it can be composted. I also use it in the chicken run.

  18. tina f. (verified owner)

    I love this bedding. I am able to avoid the any smell and it keeps the coop looking nice.

  19. Anonymous (verified owner)

    This bedding comes in sealed plastic, and then in a cardboard box. The chickens and ducks love it. If I put the bedding in deep during the winter, the same bedding lasts all winter. The chickens seem to be so happy that they lay more eggs then other beddings like straw or wood chips.

    I have a 4 foot x 8 foot chicken coop. 1 1/2 bags will fill it to about 6 inches. I do turn mine over every two or three days. I have 8 chickens all of them gives this hemp claws ups they are very happy with how good it is doing.

    This is such a great product. It's easy to use in the chicken coop - I can sift out the waste easily each day and keep it moving. Hemp is vastly superior to wood shavings for absorbency.

  28. Kristen B. (verified owner)

    My chicken coop smells great and the hemp is absorbent enough to even handle my ducks. I love this product.

  29. Alecia (verified owner)

    Yes, my chickens do well with the hemp bedding, but shipping is expensive.
