Organic Wisconsin Barley Straw Bale – 70 oz. Treats 20,000 + gallons


  • One plastic mesh onion sack bag stuffed with all natural, organic Wisconsin barley straw. This barley straw for ponds is packed by hand and is very earth friendly.
  • This bale of straw measures approximately 26″ x 15″, weighs approximately 70 ounces and will effectively treat 20,000 plus gallons of pond water, but you can never over-treat with all natural barley for ponds, so feel free to add more.
  • By placing these bales of straw in your pond you will be choosing the safe and natural way to keep your pond water clean and clear year-round. Don’t be fooled by other industrial packed barley, barley straw extract, or barley straw pellets which are all made in factories, these bulk barley bales for ponds are harvested in Wisconsin and packed by hand in Wisconsin. These are as natural as it gets!
  • Barley straw bales are nature’s way to help keep clean and clear pond water. Add barley to the pond in early spring and replace it or add to it after four to six months. When following mother nature’s way to treat your pond water, you need to have patience, this all natural barley pond clarifier won’t start to work until it begins to decay.
  • As long as the barley is decomposing, it is working. We use this exact barley in all of our ponds.


This is one fully stuffed, hand-packed, organic barley bale.  We buy our barley from a certified organic barley grower right here in Janesville Wisconsin.  We then hand pack the barley into bags.  This bag is a plastic mesh onion sack, because we couldn't find a fully biodegradable alternative.  Sorry about that.  The good news is that these bags are pretty easy to anchor to the edge or bottom of your pond and you can pull out the onion sack once the barley has finished decomposing.  We have been using these bales in our largest ponds for many years in our pond business and we know that you will be fully satisfied with them.

These Barley Bales are pretty big, so we usually only use them in larger farm ponds.  Like any barley bale, you will want it to be in some moving water if possible, and submerged just below the surface.  You don't want it to sink over three feet deep, or it just won't get enough oxygen to decompose properly.  They can be buried directly in the rocks and gravel at the bottom of your pond if you have a shallow area, or the bags can be stuffed with some rocks so that they sink to the bottom on their own.  You can also stake these bags to the bottom in naturally bottomed ponds. The more water that flows through the bales, the better.

Barley is all natural, so you can never add too much barley.
