I’ve been calling around, trolling Craiglist, Facebook, etc, and I’m finding the going rate for straw bales here in New Hampshire is $10-$15! Granted, the last time I priced strawbales was about 10 years ago, but you could get them for $4-5 and that wasn’t too far from where I live now. Even considering inflation, the current prices seem high. My guess is that straw is seeing a COVID spike like everything remotely related to gardening, along with the growing popularity of straw bale gardening.
How are straw prices looking in other parts of the country?
