3rd Timothy Hay


Harvest Date - September 2020

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.

Fresh green hay

First time trying KMS and I’m surprised by the amazing customer service and the quality of hay. I used to buy another hay from a different popular online supplier but was not impressed with how dusty the hay is (about 1/3 of the box was inedible). I purchased a small batch to try and I can see it side by side how green the hay from KMS is. My bunny is a very picky eater and she approves KMS 3rd cutting hay. I will come back for a larger batch in the future! Thank you Dan!

Guineas enjoyed them

First time guinea pig owner. Bought the oxbow first cut without knowing much. The guinea pigs basically wasted all the hay and used it as their bed. I researched and found that second cut and third cut is what younger guineas prefer. Sure enough, my young Guinea pigs actually ate the hay! They did not eat the brown bits so going to try second cut next time. Great quality!

I'm not sure who loves this hay more...me or my pigs

I think it's a tie. I LOVE seeing them go so crazy over this hay! This is my second time ordering and I love how fast the hay gets to us. They eat it right up and aren't afraid to let me know when they need a refill. Thank you!
