We support British farming, sourcing our straw & miscanthus from local farmers, then process it into our unique bedding pellets. We do not sell fuel pellets or imported pellets, which can be dusty and may contain additives that are harmful to animals.
PelletBeds are available in 15kg reusable plastic bags, which can be opened easily & safely without requiring a knife. We can also supply economic & eco-friendly 1000kg bulk bags.
We deliver using small 7.5t tail-lift trucks, allowing access into difficult locations & can offer timed deliveries aswell as a small bag off loading service for an additional charge. All our pallets include a reuseable full length pallet hood to give the bags extra protection from the weather.
