Seven Springs Farms began producing Rolled Erosion Control Products (RECP) in January of 2021. RECPs are used for erosion control in various situations, such as the new construction of a house or road, erosion control projects around waterways, etc. We are currently producing straw blankets only, but have plans to produce all natural jute/straw blankets in the near future. Each blanket is made with straw produced on our farm, through our wheat crop. This allows us to ensure the highest quality product. All blankets are biodegradable and are available for purchase locally. A standard blanket is 8′ x 112.5′ and covers 100 sq yards. Common sizes:
- 8′ x 112.5′
- 16′ x 112.5′
- 8′ x 562.5′
- 16′ x 562.5′
- 4′ x 50′
Why Choose SSF Straw & Fertilizer Blankets?
The straw used in our blankets is harvested with stripper heads that take only the grain and leave the whole shaft of the wheat standing. This allows us to cut the straw to the longest possible length. Straw length is fundamental to the quality of an Erosion Control Blanket. Most wheat is harvested with draper heads which take the shaft along with the grain of the wheat. The straw then travels thru the whole combine and comes out in short broken prices. Because of its shorth length, it falls thru the netting or lands between the stitching needles and is never actually stitched to the netting. With longer straw each piece is stitched to the netting at multiple points. The longer straw stays put during transportation and thru installation, ensuring the best possible coverage for every inch. This is what makes our blankets superior to others on the market.
Our blankets are made with 100% agricultural straw stitched with polypropylene thread between two photodegradable polypropylene nets. They will degrade within 1-2 years. Currently our double net blankets are NTPEP approved and we are awaiting NTPEP approval on our single net blankets.

“Your ECBs unroll like they are supposed to. Any company using other manufacturers are working their guys to death. Its hard to imagine how much easier and time saving it is to have quality ECBs. Yours are made like they should be…. We let them unroll down slopes…. We never had to touch any of them. Unrolled perfect and straight.”
