3rd cut Timothy hay

Timothy Hay

Timothy hay is a grass hay, but the "cuts" on the Timothy hay are very different. My farmers cut ALL their hay a couple weeks before other farmers. Even though his yield is lower, his quality is better and the hay is younger and contains more nutrition.

3rd Cut Timothy Hay

3rd cut Timothy hay is a gift, not a given. There are so many variables to this cutting of hay, such as weather, moisture, and temperature that sometimes entire crops are lost.

It is cut in late September or early October, and is the best selling hay in our inventory spanning more than 14 years.

It has nearly no stem, is wide and leafy. It is a soft and pliable hay that you can literally wind around your fingers like the bluegrass. It normally has a bit of brown leaf to it, but that never seems to matter to the critters! It is loved by guinea pigs, chins, rabbits and degus. It is a nice green color and will have very few, if any, seed heads. If the harvest goes well and there is no rain, I will be carrying this hay at the end of September or beginning of October.

I've been told by many, many customers that their animals won't eat hay, only to find that they love this cutting and is the only one they will eat! I have found that to be true with one of my own guinea pigs as well.  If you have a hard time getting your pet to eat hay, try this cutting.

Great smelling hay!

My bunnies are picky but they’ll eat this hay. They prefer this over the more common second cutting hay. Looks and smells fresh- good quality hay!

This hay was a big hit!

This hay is in long pieces which is very good for guinea pig digestion. My pig, Weasley, loved it. He nearly climbed out of his cage & into the hay bag as I was pulling out the hay to feed him. He has been eating Kaytee & Oxbow. He wastes a lot of the Kaytee. I can put a pile of KMS in his cage & it is GONE within a hour (or less)! It smells sooo good too! Many thanks to the school coach who recommended KMS on her YouTube video!

Wow! This is the best hay my piggies have ever had!

They LOVE this hay so much. I’ve never seen them finish their hay so quickly. They don’t even leave any to clean up like they did with the pet store bought hay.
