Our premium-flake organic wood shavings are made with mixture of spruce and balsam. We create a precise mix of small, medium, and large flakes to suit all your animal bedding needs. The small flakes help absorb moisture and make it easy to pick through by falling through the forks and so there is less waste. The large flakes work great for show days and provide an ultimate cushion for animals to stand and lay on.
A Healthy Wood Shaving
Our organic bedding is great for animals with respiratory issues, or skin sensitivities. Our bedding does not contain any harsh chemicals or chemical smells (things that can irritate our animals lungs and nose.) The fact that there is minimal dust is also an important benefit to our animals or people with asthma.
Organic is a labeling term that indicates that the product has been produced and processed using approved methods. The methods integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. As the only certified USDA Organic wood shavings producer in the country, the USDA seal on our bags means you are a getting a product that is produced and maintained to the national standards.
The List of benefits goes on and on...
100 Percent Organic
We are the only wood shavings producer in the country that is certified 100 percent organic and we proudly display the USDA Organic seal on our bags, so you know you are getting an all-natural product that is maintained to the highest quality standards.
We use the wood flour and dust (that is created when shaving the logs) to heat the burner that dries the shavings. There is no waste of resources with our process.
Our shavings go through three quality control tests to ensure the product contains 7% or less moisture.
Double-screened to minimize dust
The shavings are sent through a double-screened shaker, separating our bagged product from the wood flour and dust (which are used to fuel the burner). They are not a by-product from planers or other manufacturing and do not contain any sawdust.
The absorbency comes from keeping our product within the correct moisture parameters and leaving enough small flakes to adequately soak up urine like a sponge.
Spruce and balsam have low acidity levels, therefore they biodegrade faster than other species for field applications.
Produced and Packaged in Michigan, USA
We produce and bag our shavings at our shop in Kincheloe, Michigan and use logs from organic trees grown in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Our bags are bigger
Bags contain 3.0 cubic feet compressed and expand to at least 7.0 cubic feet! The gusset handles on top make for easy carrying, and the pull-flap on the bottom makes opening the bags a cinch. No knife needed! They are packed in a durable plastic bag with UV coating to protect the shavings from the elements.

We have a small fleet of semi-trucks and trailers that we use to personally deliver our shavings. Semi truckloads contain 20 to 22 pallets of bags. We also have a small trailer that we use for 200-bag deliveries. Our minimum delivery is 200 bags.
