Where to find decent straw in north Idaho?

Hello all,

I'm living in the Idaho panhandle (in town) with my parents at the moment and we're trying to get a 'pandemic garden' going. It's going decently well, my parents bought the property last year from someone who had extensive ornamental gardens (so most of the work has been digging and moving or giving away ornamentals). But I've noticed when it rains that a lot of the freshly exposed soil is getting washed away, leaving a crust of gravel. Gotta love that Post Falls soil xD  I would love to get some mulch on things, thinking wood chips for the beds that are staying ornamental but would love to get some good clean straw for the vegetable beds. Organic would be great but as long as it's not full of herbicides I don't really care. I just don't want to be putting mulch full of persistent plant killers in my garden for obvious reasons.

Any north Idaho leads on a clean supply?

Thanks!
