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.

Fantastic Hay!

My Guinea pigs LOVE this hay!! As soon as they smell the hay after I open the bag, they wildly squeak until they get their helping! And our bunny loves KMS Hayloft’s bluegrass hay as well. I’ve got both of these hays now on auto-ship! 5 stars!!

High quality timothy hay!

I just recently started ordering hay from KMS. I get the 3rd cut timothy hay and my guinea pigs love it. I've been having so many issues with the big company pet stores...Their hay is overpriced for such low quality. Most of the time my pigs wouldn't eat it. They are super picky and love 3rd cut hay which is impossible to find in regular pet stores. I was pulling my hair out from frustration. I'm so happy to have found KMS. I saw all the good reviews so I gave it a try. So far I am very happy and so are my pigs. I also love that I can buy in bulk, it lasts forever. Their hay smells wonderful and is super fresh. It's worth every penny.
