Ultra Premium Soft Orchard Grass
What is Ultra Premium Soft Orchard Grass?
Soft Orchard Grass is high in fiber and low in both protein and calcium. It is the softest type of hay we carry and makes a great alternative if you or your rabbit, guinea pig, or chinchilla are allergic to Timothy Hay.
The 2022 Ultra Premium Soft Orchard Grass we have in stock is currently a 9/10. This year's Soft Orchard Grass is a great example of what Soft Orchard Grass should be. It has a nice full leaf structure with almost no leaf crush. The only reason that it does not get a 10/10 is because of the a small amount of Alfalfa that was found.

As your small pet gets older, softer feed may become more and more of a necessity. Yet, it’s important to make sure they have some coarse hay in the mix to help them continue to have good dental health, this is why we recommend mixing in some Timothy Hay into your Soft Orchard Grass.

Allergic to Timothy Hay?
Allergies, especially to Timothy Hay are common (you aren’t alone!). Soft Orchard Grass can be a wonderful alternative for you and your small pet while still getting them all the important nutrients they need. In our experience, people who are allergic to Timothy Hay are less allergic to our Soft Orchard Grass.
If you are feeding your rabbit, guinea pig, or chinchilla exclusively Soft Orchard Grass we recommend you mentioning this to your vet so that they can keep an eye on their dental health. Chew toys, such as Apple Sticks, can be a solution to help wear down their teeth. We are dedicated to making sure your pets are happy, healthy, and well fed even when allergies are an issue.
Why Hay is Essential to Their Diet
Grass hay is an important staple in the diet of rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas. For rabbits 7 months and older and guinea pigs 6 months and older, grass hay should make up 80% of their diet. For chinchillas older than a year, grass hay should make up 75% of their diet. The constant foraging and grazing encouraged by hay helps to keep them physically active and mentally stimulated. It also helps to wear down their teeth while the long strand fiber helps to keep their digestion regular and functioning properly.
Stop Wasting Time & Money on Bad Hay
Tired of wasting time picking through bad hay just to find the bits your rabbit, guinea pig, or chinchilla will actually eat? We visually inspect and hand-pack every package of hay to ensure that you get fresh, green, fragrant hay of the highest quality. Your hay is always hand-processed, never machine-cut, creating nice long strands and less small pieces. You’ll no longer have to worry about your small pet suffering from irritated eyes or sneezing from excessive dust. We preserve freshness by bagging all of our hay inside the box. This helps keep it from drying out or absorbing unwanted odors.

We are located in Northern California, in the heart of hay country. We source all of our hay from local growers in the surrounding regions of the Northwest United States. We pride ourselves on supporting a community of small pet owners who care deeply about providing happy and healthy lifestyles for their pets.
