Straw Blankets

Straw mat installation on Christian County Farm

Seven Springs Farms began producing Rolled Erosion Control Products (RECP) in January of 2021.  RECPs are 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. Each blanket we produce uses straw grown on our farm.  This allows us to ensure the highest quality product. All straw blankets are photodegradable and are available for purchase locally. A standard mat 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?

We use straw 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. Draper heads are by far the most common type of head used to harvest wheat. Draper heads take the shaft along with the grain of the wheat and runs it thru the whole combine breaking it into short pieces. Its shorth length, causes it fall thru the netting or land between the stitching needles. This results in many strands of straw not attaching to the netting.

Longer straw ensures 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. Double and Single net blankets have NTPEP testing.
