But what's not a joke is the material most baling twine is made from, polypropylene. This plastic polymer is difficult to recycle, and takes a very long time to break down naturally.
That's the bad news.
The good news is there are alternatives that are just as effective in common agricultural use. One of them is Brazilian Twine. Made from Earth-friendly and recyclable 100% pure Sisal fiber, Otsdawa Junction Farm is proud to make the switch to this all-natural baling twine in the next haying season.
Baling twine is the string used to contain a given amount of hay in a small square or large round shape. It's a staple during haying season and the Swiss Army knife of repairs all over the farm.
