I'm in Missoula Montana, and looking for 6-9 straw (not hay) bales, preferably organic, to start my straw bale garden. I'm new in town, this is my first garden this year. I know I can get them at a farm store or hardware store in town, but hoping an organic farmer might have some to sell that could also deliver....?

@Jennie, did you find a source? If so, I’d love to hear because I’m in the same area.

If you haven’t found them yet, I know that Ace hardware carries them (there’s one on Brooks, and another on Broadway near the east side of town), and Tractor Supply has them (south of town, heading towards Lolo). I’d rather find a direct from farmer source so I have more information about what I’m buying, but I did buy a few from Ace last year.
 
It's hard to fight evil. The little things, like a nice sandwich, really helps. Right tiny ad?
