Orchard hay makes a nice change for small animals. They like some variety in their diets - think about how many different grasses and plants they have to choose from in nature! Our indoor friends love variety too.
It's also terrific for folks who have allergies to timothy hay!
We have close relationships with the farmers in Washington State (where we started, and the home of one of our two warehouses). We personally choose what hay we like by going to fields, seeing and smelling and touching the crops. Then we hand pack every box that goes out, so we see it all again. Our eyes are on everything that comes to you, from the field to your door, so we can get you not only the best hay, but the most consistent hay. This keeps your friend's digestive system happy, and you know what to expect from us.
Orchard hay is packed in a high strength corrugated box which opens and closes for easy storage.
You can't get this in stores...just here, in our online shop. That means it comes right to you from our warehouse, and doesn't sit on extra trucks or store shelves for who knows how long. Fresh. We believe in fresh.
Fiber is the most important factor in a small animal diet plan. A constant supply of hay keeps the GI tract in great shape, and helps to prevent bloat, stasis, and dental issues.
Feeding directions: fully 80% of your friend's diet should be great hay. Small animals need a constant supply of fiber to keep them healthy, so never let them run out. To keep the hay smelling nice (which makes it yummier and more enticing to our little fuzzies), make sure they get a fresh supply at least once a day.
