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, so there is less waste. The large flakes work great for show days and provide the ultimate cushion for animals to stand and lay on.
A Safe Wood Shaving
Our bedding is great for animals with respiratory issues or skin sensitivity. It does not contain any harsh chemicals or chemical smells which can aggravate sensitive lungs. We also minimize dust by sending the shavings through a double-screened shaker.
We use the wood flour and dust that are shaken out of our product to heat the burner that dries the shavings. There is no waste of resources with our process. We do not use a kiln so there is no propane or natural gas involved in the drying process—which means our shavings smell like freshly cut spruce and balsam!
We use only organic-certified trees to produce our shavings—there are no by-products, additives, or wood waste from manufacturing in our product. 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 we are the only certified USDA Organic wood shavings producer in the country, the USDA seal on our bags means you get a product that is produced and maintained to national standards.
Our shavings go through quality control tests to ensure they contain 6-9% moisture. Less moisture in the product means more absorbency for you! We also ensure that we leave enough small flakes so that our product can adequately soak up liquids like a sponge.
