We have rolls of paper mulch, which we use for hops, squash, other cucurbitae, brassicas, tomatoes etc. Anything you need to mulch that grows in single crops rather than rows.
Rolls are untreated kraft paper, 4x400'. Can be used in organic production. We use paper mulch in the hopyards every year, and there's usually almost nothing left in the yard come spring cleanup time. We also use it in our vegetable gardens, it's great! Biodegrades over winter in wetter climates, can be composted before next planting. Unlike plastic mulch, paper mulch lets air through, which leads to better soil health.
$100 per roll picked up at the farm. Shipping very expensive, the rolls are heavy! Best come here. May be able to deliver if you're close. No price breaks, this is our cost.
