    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.

  4. William B. (verified owner)

    Fast delivery read great reviews I'm sure my chickens will love this when they get delivered.

  5. Marion (verified owner)

    Love the hemp it's great for my hens just wish shipping wasn't so high. Great product!

  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.

    We love this hemp for our chickens. We do a deep litter method and this stuff is perfect! No smell 🙂 Thank you for the great product.

  9. Mary Hylton (verified owner)

    I love the hemp bedding for my chickens it works great on keeping down the smell and it is not dusty. Thank you

  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.

  12. Lisa Burgs

    Love this bedding, still figuring out exactly what to do for our chickens, but I like that this is not super dusty and our girls seem to like it. I especially love that I received a hand written Thank You for my purchase in the mail. I little love goes a long way!

    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.

  20. kennth strickland (verified owner)

    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.

  21. Vickie H. (verified owner)

    My chickens and duck coops are much easier to manage and clean with the hemp bedding

  22. Jackie B. (verified owner)

    Thank you. Great response time and shipping speed.

  23. Lorri (verified owner)

    We use it in our chicken pens. The chickens love it, it stays really clean and almost no smell in coop or run.

  24. Anonymous (verified owner)

    my chickens like the hemp bedding , hopefully it will be good for deep bedding method over the winter.

  25. Cheryl (verified owner)

    Quality product. The chickens love the bedding and lay more eggs. I have ordered this bedding several times. Promptly delivered and well packaged every time.

  26. Erica (verified owner)

    I got this for my flock and they love it! It smells nice and is so soft! I’ll only be using this bedding from now on.

  27. Heather F. (verified owner)

    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. Paree Hecht (verified owner)

    Use for chicken droppings board underneath nighttime roost. Excellent absorption/odor control/dust minimization without unnecessary waste When picking clean every morning.

  30. Cheryl (verified owner)

    Chickens an ducks love the hemp bedding. Soaks up the muddy duck poop really well. The chickens love playing in it and lay more eggs....lasts along time. Great for the 'deep bedding' method.

  31. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Using it in chicken coop run, partially and totally covered areas, also in the poop tray, works well and composts quickly.

  32. Ashley K. (verified owner)

    Excellent quality and pretty timely shipping. A little more expensive than my previous vendor for the same size bag of hemp bedding.

    So far, we really like the bedding. We have chix, turkeys, and guineas, all in different coops. Not sure of the bedding and the initial huge price, we only did our turkey pen. Husband had stroke, heart attack and bad back, making him disabled. I have fibromyalgia, and arthritis, making me disabled. We are both 70 yrs. old. We needed to try something to get thru winters with less work. We live in snow belt in Pa. So far, the turkey coop, has remained dry. Fluffing up has been easy, and turkeys are dusting off in coop. Will know better, when snow arrives, with wet, muddy, freezing weather. For now, we are very pleased. Just wish someone closer to us carried product as, spending over hundreds of dollars for delivery, is quite expensive to us only on social security. We still will need 12 more bales for chix and Guinea pens. But I highly recommend hemp bedding better than using straw or hay which stays wet and heavy, needing cleaning more often. I would tell others to try product and see for yourselves how well it works.

  35. Gloria Evans (verified owner)

    It’s very clean and absorbs waste very well. It’s also low dust and my chickens love it for their nesting boxes also.

    I've been using OD hemp bedding for a year to manage my chicken coop and it's perfect. Low-or-no dust and oder. It makes cleaning the waste easy and keeps the smell in the coop fresh. In the winter, the deep litter method works well both at managing their waste and keeping the coop warm like insulation. Unlike other methods, like pine flakes, sand, or straw, the hemp has checked every box with no downsides in the year (and all 4 seasons) I've used it. OD has shipped reliably with every order and has been a very consistent and reliable supplier and company to work with. I will be continuing to use use OD hemp for the foreseeable future.

  37. Anonymous (verified owner)

    my biggest issue is the shipping cost. YOu'd like a bulk order would be discounted. It makes it affordably.

  38. Zbynek (verified owner)

    My chickens like it and the price and shipping was excellent. Good company.

  39. john jarrell (verified owner)

    I received the Hemp Bedding promptly. I am going to use this in the spring & summer on my raised garden bed. Hoping it will help keep moisture in and the sun off my compost and worm castings. I live in Texas and it gets hot. Will let you know how it works. January 30 2022, well I cleaned off my garden bed added a couple inches of fresh compost and some worm castings and topped it off with your hemp. I absolutely love the hemp! I will definitely be a repeat customer. Thanks John Jarrell

    I am allergic to pine shavings so tried your hemp bedding. I can sit in the coop with the "kids" (9 week old chicks) and have absolute no problems whatsoever. I am so glad I found you guys and tickled pink how great it is in the coop. There is absolutely no smell in the coop and makes for easy clean out. And if that isn't enough, we use the cleaned out hemp for our raised beds. Thank you for a great product, great service, bit most of all - the ability to spend time with my babies and no health concens on my part.

    Excellent Bedding because it is nearly dust free and highly absorbent.

  45. Bernard Koogler (verified owner)

    Using it in dog kennel with puppies! Very absorbent and helps control odor!

  46. Dana Koenig (verified owner)

    I cannot tell you how much I love this stuff!! My hen's coop smells so sweet - it is SO easy to scoop poop out of it because it clumps and you don't lose a lot of bedding when you scoop. I am a bit of a clean freak with my coop and with the hemp bedding it feels more like a dorm room than a chicken coop! So nice!

  47. Sandra B. (verified owner)

    This bedding is super awesome!! Highly recommend!

  48. Candi S. (verified owner)

    This was the first time I have purchased hemp bedding for my chickens but I absolutely love it!
    It is so soft & there is no dust. It doesn’t have much of a smell but the light scent it has is pleasant.
    I will not have to change the bedding as much as it very quickly dries out the chicken poop - making it very easy to do a quick clean each morning with the large metal kitty litter scooper I have.
    The chickens really seem to like the hemp as well!
    This company offers the best price per cubic foot but my only complaint is that the cost of shipping is so high.
    That being said I am incredibly happy with the product and will continue to be a regular customer!
    Oh, and I love love that no pesticides or chemicals are used on this product!

  49. Tracy (verified owner)

    Low dust and long lasting. We use it for our goat bedding and our chickens. Will never use another type of bedding again. Worth the $

  50. Eric M. (verified owner)

    Less expensive from Old Dominion site versus some product at other online sites. It does a good job drying out manure, you have to stir the hemp because it packs well. Great product with minimal dust. Finally, with deep litter method it can be a annual change out with new litter.

  51. Ruth Z. (verified owner)

  52. Charles Baumer (verified owner)

    I have chickens. Really like the hemp. Compost very well and requires less maintenance then straw. I do the deep litter method and change it every 6 months

  53. Danielle McCarty (verified owner)

    Love the product and the price! However, I am not happy that it is out of stock with no ability to be notified when it returns. The smaller bags aren’t nearly as well priced so I guess I’ll be waiting…

    I love this bedding, at first the girls were not so sure about it but I think they would rate it a five for sure. It produces very little dust. It stays in place which makes it easier for the chicks to jump down and it’s way less messy overall.

  57. Cory A Russell (verified owner)

    Stellar product (not dusty). Good communication and quick delivery. Thanks!

  58. Jocelyn M. (verified owner)

    I'm using this for deep litter in my chicken coop and I've been super impressed! This is my secord order. The first lasted me almost a year. My only regret was mixing in other bedding so I started fresh and I'm going strictly hemp indoors. I moved the old stuff out back to the pen and it's still going strong. Yes, it is a lot pricier than pine shavings but the quality isn't even comparable. It's low dust, super absorbent and lasts forever. I bet I'll get 2+ years building up on this latest order. That's 2 years of happy, healthy chickens in a low odor coop. My chicken to sq ft ratio is generous so ymmv but I'd reccomend it for anyone doing deep litter!

Overview
Additional Info

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.
