    Default Seeking new hay supplier.....

    Hi everyone

    I have 2 fussy bunny's. We usually get our Hay in binbags from a local rescue where they order a huge bale and binbag from that. Mine love the green stalky bits but leave the brown thinner stands so I'm wasting so much.

    So looking for new options that ideally don't cost the earth but are nice stalky and green.

    I'm in the UK and was doing some research, keen to hear peoples thoughts. Would consider subscriptions too contemplating haybox.club?

    Thanks

    I use dustfree hay. Although it seems expensive it is cheaper than shop bought and is great quality. They will probably send you some samples if you email.

    There's some nice stuff at 4 a bale at Scammonden, apparently. Nice and fine and green. For collection. I'm hoping to get some dropped off next week so I;m not sure of the address - I assume it is a farm or farm supplier as I'm getting it via a smallholder.

    Hay looks great if slightly on the expensive side. I'm going to do as you suggest and email for a sample of different types

    Little far out for me unfortunately but good idea about local farms selling

    The ings hay from hayandstraw.co.uk is also very popular with bunnies. They do samples if your buns want to road test it before you put in an order.
