Had to switch my guys over. Have used Oxbow for a couple of decades and seems lately everyone is out of a lot of their products. I have one really picky one that usually won't even try something new but, even my picky Henry warmed up to this one relatively quickly. If he'll eat it just about anybun will.
I had wanted to try SMF's pellets for rabbits for a while. I normally fed my bun Oxbow. I wanted to find something economical, but I don't want to lower a quality of his food. He is 5 years old, and cheap alfalfa pellets can cause a lot of problems to him. The bag I received didn't contain anything weird. But I wish the bag was completely sealed like Oxbow or other brands. I bought a 20lb bag, and the bag was sealed using a thread. The thread did its job, but it left small gaps. It's risky for the food to get infested. Other than that, this is a great rabbit food. My bun loves it. He seems to enjoy it more than Oxbow. I will stick with this brand from now on.
I've been feeding this to my lionhead and my dwarf for over a year now. They love it. I'm happy with the ingredients and nutrition. And I love how affordable it is, especially when you buy it in bulk. The largest bag lasts me 4 months. I recommend storing it in an airtight container that mice can't chew through.
Like many others, I have found corn in this food. It's a bummer because this food is much cheaper than similar alternatives in terms of stated nutrition content. A quick search or talk with your vet will tell you that corn should not be a consistent part of a rabbit's diet. I have seen recommendations ranging from "never" to "rarely" for corn consumption, but I pull several pellets that appear to be mostly corn from this food in each scoop.
My rabbit loves these pellets. Timothy pellets give him the nutrition that he needs. Great product, great price!
My rabbits really like it. They get excited when I give it to them and I like that the first ingredient is Timothy hay. The only problem is that I am finding quite a bit of corn mixed in. Corn is not on the ingredients list and is also not very good for rabbits. This is how much corn I pulled out after less than a minute of digging. It’s much cheaper than Oxbow and is good in many ways, but I really think there should be something done about the corn. If this is intentional, it should at least be listed in the ingredients. If it is accidental, then this is complete carelessness.
I was previously feeding my rabbits Oxbow pellets, but decided to give this a try because it's a lot cheaper and seemed to have a similar nutritional profile. The first bag I got was great, but the last two bags I've received have huge chunks of corn in them. Corn isn't even listed on the ingredients list, and it not good for rabbits. I would not have picked this feed if I knew it contained corn. I will be switching to another brand now...
Found this as we have alot of rabbits and I must say that are rabbits love this. Been feeding for close to a year. No problems.
My rabbits are so happy with this Sweet Meadow Farm adult formula rabbit pellets. I don’t need to even bother to look at other brands! I have been to the actual farm, since I am within 1and a half hours of it, and it is a great place - well kept animals and helpful staff. You can tell that they really care about their products. I am so glad to be able to have chewy delivery! It is SO economical and time saving as well!
With six rabbits, timothy pellets were getting a little expensive at the local retail store. I happened to find this brand on Chewy. I could get over twice the amount for less than what I was paying at the retail store for a 9-pound bag, so I decided to give it a try. I wasn't sure if the rabbits would like it, so I ordered a 20-pound bag. They loved it! I will be ordering a 40-pound bag next time around.
