FAQs - Straw Bale Construction

How much do Straw Bales cost ?

In the Western Cape Straw bales are harvested around November and December this is normally the best time to buy ones bales. Bales bought later into the year tend to be more expensive and in less good condition unless they have been specifically stored under shelter.

You can pay R5 – R10 a bale in season compared to up to R30 out of season!

Other parts of the country harvest a bit later into summer, so one always need to check with your local farmers if you are looking for bales anywhere else in the country.
