The idea for an international trading platform for farmers, animal owners, and feed producers was born as early as 2010. The project was started by a farming pioneer and an enthusiast with a small involvement of engineering, entrepreneurship, and a bit of legal expertise.
Our ambition is to promote a sustainable mindset among horse and stable owners with the smallest possible carbon footprint. Our stable bedding made from flax straw is cultivated under simple conditions, where water, sunlight, and a touch of fertilization do the heavy lifting.

Flax straw sequesters carbon dioxide throughout its lifetime, contributing to reducing the amount of carbon dioxide and thereby slowing down the greenhouse effect and, ultimately, climate change. By using flax bedding in your stable, you help reduce the use of fossil products like peat and wood-based materials such as wood shavings.
Flax requires minimal fertilization, and the fertilization produced in your stable is typically sufficient. To enable a recycling system, we also buy back our customers’ horse manure, which is then processed and sold as soil conditioner to crop growers. The proceeds from this are used by our customers to purchase new bedding. This way, you can become more or less self-sufficient in flax bedding.
