WHEAT & MISCANTHUS STRAW PELLETS
100% British, Natural & Sustainable
natural, soft, sustainable British Straw
up to 3x MORE ABSORBENT THAN SHAVINGS, 2x WOOD PELLETS
PelletBeds® are the original ‘Soft’ 6mm Straw Pellet Bedding made specifically for horses from 100% natural, sustainable, British Wheat and Miscanthus Straw with NO pelleting additives.
Due to their small diameter and soft texture, they open easily so uniquely do not need to be soaked before use; giving much better absorbency than competing ‘hard’ wood or 8mm straw ‘fuel’ pellet
Established over 20 years ago – our pellet bedding is made from sustainable British straw – an annual crop left over from harvest and miscanthus, with each hectare absorbing up to 29 tons of CO2 annually – as it grows.
We are also proud to be the first Zero waste bedding company and have saved over 20t of plastic to date, with all our bags being returnable and reusable…to receive money off your next purchase.
PelletBeds are made ‘soft’ using 100% long, springy straw fibres, which reduces the possibility of pellets being eaten and helps keeps hoofs healthy. PelletBeds are also the only bedding to receive a DEFRA approved, anti-bacterial treatment Protek which helps keeps your horse protected from bacteria, viruses and fungi etc..
PelletBeds® have been independently verified as the MOST absorbent bedding available; (Bangor University) being capable of absorbing up to 3x the capacity of wood shavings or over 2x wood pellets.
PelletBeds® are easy to use & long lasting, requiring half the time to maintain, while lasting twice as long. The used bedding will also decompose quickly, ~10x faster than wood products, adding nutrients to the soil.
PelletBeds are made from sustainable crop resides harvested annually and unlike wood pellets or shavings; no trees are harmed in their production. It takes approx. 3 fully grown trees to make 1t of wood pellets which additionally require carbon intensive drying and transport to process. Over 25m trees are harvested for wood pellet use in UK each year
Our own Warwickshire factory is ideally situated in the middle of the country and we offer FREE GB* delivery, if required, using small 7.5t trucks. (*small surcharge to some areas)

soft, super absorbent, dust extracted equine bedding
Established over 20 years ago, we are the original manufacturer of equine pellet bedding in the UK. As opposed to most imported wood and 8mm straw ‘fuel’ pellets, we uniquely make our own soft pellet bedding specifically for horses using locally sourced, fully traceable British Straw and Miscanthus.
We are also the only company to offer Zero waste, ‘returnable for free’ sustainable packaging, saving over 20t of plastic to date and giving back up to £6.50 per pallet.
PelletBeds are unique and have been independently verified, by Bangor University, as the most absorbent bedding on the market. PelletBeds are also the only bedding to receive a Defra approved antibacterial treatment.
PelletBeds® have been developed to keep your horse healthy and comfortable. During our unique process, straw is chopped; dedusted, then steam sterilised & soft pelleted. The pellets are cooled, then finally, before packaging, receive a unique, Defra approved, anti-bacterial treatment ‘Protek‘ to help minimise stable bacteria & odours . Our pellet bedding regularly undergoes microbiological analysis to ensure it is in perfect condition prior to despatch.
Our products are sustainable and environmentally friendly. Straw grows annually, unlike wood does not require drying/processing and our packaging is returnable and reusable. After use PelletBeds will compost quickly (reducing disposal costs) without harming the soil.
PelletBeds will last much longer than traditional shavings, chopped straw or wood pellet bedding and with less time required to ‘muck out’, offer a healthy, cost effective solution to stabling horses.
OUR EQUINE 'PRO' IS THE MOST ABSORBENT BEDDING ON THE MARKET
3x MORE ABSORBENT THAN SHAVINGS; 2x WOOD PELLETS
Our pellet bedding has been independently verified, by Bangor University, as the most absorbent bedding on the market. PelletBeds are also made soft so will open easily without soaking, further increasing there absorbency over wood ‘fuel’ pellets, which are made hard and require time consuming ‘soaking’ before use
LONG SPRINGY STRAW FIBRES
PelletBeds are made specifically for horses from long springy straw fibres which are on average ~ 10x larger than wood pellet particles.
As wood and straw fuel pellets are made for combustion they have to be made from very small dust particles. The bsl ENplus A1 Wood Fuel Pellet standard requires that ‘95% of particles in wood pellets must be less than 2 mm….and 60% less than 1 mm….!!!!’) These fuel pellets are also made very hard (for combustion and transport reasons) so require excessive watering to open.
Some pellets may also contain pelleting additives such as caustic (sodium hydroxide) which are harmful to horses.
We manufacture all our pellets at our own UK production facility, shipping directly to consumers. This insures we can constantly monitor our pellet quality and extract any dust throughout processing and handling.
See our “How To Use’ page to see how we can make your job of mucking out a whole lot easier.

LOCALLY GROWN SUSTAINABLE BRITISH STRAW
SUSTAINABLE BRITISH STRAW
We care about the environment.
PelletBeds are made from naturally dry British Straw and Miscanthus which is grown on our farm,, then processed efficiently, before being despatched directly to you.
We are the first Zero waste bedding company, saving over 20t of plastic to date, with all our bags reusable and returnable for free to receive money off your next purchase.
As straw is a sustainable residue from annual crop production it does not require the destruction of forests. Straw and miscanthus are also carbon negative; annually capturing up to 2.35t of CO2 per hectare as they grow each year
Trees in comparison require over 20 years plus to grow and reabsorb the carbon emitted when one is cut down….with the UK currently using approx. 25 million trees for wood pellets it is clearly unsustainable
Trees are a valuable environmental resource which have to be managed carefully. The UK has only 13% tree cover compared to a European average of 46% and currently over 88% of the wood used in the UK has to imported ( 2nd largest importer in world).
