Designed to be a supplement to a grass hay based diet.
If your rabbit is not a good hay eater (at least 50% of the diet by weight) then we highly recommend using the other adult formula that contains added timothy hay.


Previously known as "Fortifying Essentials" "Concentrate" or "Supplement". It's official name will be soon changed to "Professional".


2x as concentrated so you can feed 1/2 as many pellets!
This is a concentrated grain-free and soy-free adult rabbit food that is Designed to be a supplement to a grass hay based diet. (and selected greens/treats). It contains higher concentrations of specific nutrients that complements the nutrients already found in grass hay (like timothy, meadow, or orchard hay) and balances the ratios that are needed to help rabbits promote and maintain optimal health. When fed with grass hay (8% protein) in a 50/50 ratio the end diet will be about 14% protein total [hay (8% protein) + pellets (19% protein)/2 ≈ 14% total protein in diet.]

2 ounces of hay and 2 ounces of pellets
which is the max amount of pellets for a 4 pound bunny

Read more about alfalfa vs. soy in rabbit food.
Although every rabbit is unique a simple guide for the daily recommended feeding ration for rabbits older than 12 weeks of age is at most about 1/2 ounce of pellets per pound of body weight on a daily basis and fed with high quality hay given free-choice. TO MAKE SURE YOUR RABBIT IS EATING PLENTY OF HAY START BY FEEDING ONLY HALF OF THE MAXIMUM RECOMMENDED AMOUNT (with select greens and treats may be added sparingly).

Maximum Feeding Recommendation:
1/4 cup of pellets weighs about 1.4 ounces (maximum for a 3 pound bunny). 1/2 cup of pellets weighs about 2.8 ounces which is the maximum for a 5 to 6 pound rabbit. It is important to make sure your rabbits are eating plenty of hay!

Adjust feeding rate to maintain the health of your rabbit. The fur coat is an excellent indicator of health. A thick and beautiful fur coat on the outside is correlated with a healthy rabbit inside (as long as they are lean and have good muscle tone - a fat rabbit is not a healthy rabbit!).

Feeding Directions: This hay-based grain/soy-free food is nutritionally balanced and fortified. It is designed to be fed in limited amounts as a supplement to a diet composed primarily of loose grass hay and select greens. Start by providing no more than 1/4 ounce of pellets (a touch more than 1/2 a tablespoon) per pound of body weight and adjust as recommended by your veterinarian. For best results encourage your bunny to eat grass hay (more than 50% of diet by weight) & limit treats especially those containing grain or soy that will unbalance the nutritional value of the overall diet and increase the risk for metabolic acidosis.

Caution: Store food in a dark and dry location.

  1. Fantastic!

    Posted by Liz on 31st Oct 2017

    My bunnies would only occasionally peck at their old food here and there, only eating a mouth full or two. After getting Sherwood professional, my rabbits both look forward to it! They hear the bag open and start dancing around the house, doing binkies and sprinting around. They absolutely cannot wait to start scarfing it down. Their fur is so much more soft and shiny, have much more energy and seem happier. I too can see and smell the difference between their old food and Sherwood. If I were eating rabbit food, I too would choose Sherwood! Im so glad it was recommended by my rescue! Thank you!

  2. Fresh!!

    Posted by Lenny & Eevah on 31st Oct 2017

    My buns were skeptical at first. Sniffing then nudging it out of the way and eating their usual fare. That changed after a few days. Now it's the first pellets scarffed up. Looks and smells so fresh!! No fillers or sweeteners, great product. We will be adding this to our regular diet.

  3. Fantastic

    Posted by dcvalencia@myactv.net on 13th Oct 2017

    This Sherwood pro changed my bunnies for the better. Their fur is nicer and their droppings are perfect. My four indoor rabbits love this food. They get a tbsp twice a day and they eat tons of hay.

  4. Great Food

    Posted by Jan on 13th Oct 2017

    I was feeding Oxbow Organic and Tootsie was having some urinary issues. After several trips to the vet with nothing solved, I switched to the professional diet and she is doing great!!! What a difference. Her 'sludge' is gone and she is a happy bun once again! Will be staying on this food.

  5. great pro

    Posted by Ronnie on 11th Sep 2017

    sweet & simple. Great product would recommend to anyone with pet rabbits

  6. Great for my bunny!

    Posted by Liz on 6th Sep 2017

    I absolutely think these pellets are the best out there. My rabbit Ailise has been on them for several years now and her coat is improved, her weight remains healthy, and she is in excellent health overall. I also grind some pellets to a flour to bake into bunny-suitable healthy treats for her (which she loves). Thanks for making such a great product!

  7. excellent quality ingredients buns love it

    Posted by Sydney on 2nd Aug 2017

    I feed in conjunction with timothy hay and a tiny bit of black oil sunflower a day and the coats and weights on our mini rex are amazing. Wish came in larger sizes, hint hint.

  8. Fresh and and packed with nutrients!

    Posted by Megan on 30th May 2017

    I got my package in and you could smell the quality of this food before even opening the package. It's beautiful dark vibrant green if I liked to eat grass I would eat this. So clean so pure. Do not ever change your recipe this is spot on and healthy. The whole less is more applies to ingredients and with this short ingredient list its definitely a great thing.

  9. My rabbits love this food!

    Posted by Ashton on 8th May 2017

    I really love the quality of this product. It's fresh and green and looks like actual food. It's also helped with changing the smell of my rabbits urine as well. They can't get enough of it and I'm more than happy to fill their bellies with something that's healthy and yummy! Thanks Sherwood!!!

  10. Thankful for this great food

    Posted by ERIKA GILMARTIN on 24th Apr 2017

    I wrote a review way back circa 2013, but am again, affirming that this is great food.
    (after having been sent into the spin cycle by vets , not trusting my own observations)

    Our Mongrel Horde are 6 rescues that we love dearly(Shenanigans (Sable), Tater Tot(Orange Rex mix), King James(California), Hieronymus Unch (white dwarf mix), Turbo (New Zealand white), and Hamish McWee (brown dwarf mix)..and have just finished completely switching them out.

    Mine get unlimited hay, but I was still hesitant to give them All Sherwood pellets + HAY..but am glad I did.(husband is happy too) WE Love to see their HAPPY HEALTHY faces, ready to dance every morning...they LOVE THEIR PELLETS.
    My ten year old is more active and snoring less.
    My New Zealand "Foster" who has had a stoke is boppinh arounde like I can['t believe..

    Sherwood thank you for this food.
    My Bunnies are so much healthier, and because they are the center of our hearts and lives...you have made us healthier too. Thanks

  11. Bunnies love it

    Posted by Dorothy on 18th Apr 2017

    When my bunnies hear me open the storage bin for their food, they come running to the food bowl. I have 4 bunnies, two food bowls, and they will all crowd around which ever one I fill first. I enjoy the fresh odor to the pellets as well.

  12. Adult bunny food

    Posted by Linda Keon on 1st Apr 2017

    Whenever I have a sick rabbit I try these pellets and the bunnies seem to like them which gets them started eating.

  13. Soft fur = Healthy Bunny

    Posted by Patrick Mohney on 15th Mar 2017

    We LOVE Sherwood Professional blend. Our Holland Lop is so happy and health. His fur is sooo much softer than other bunny's of the same breed.

  14. Best food ever

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Mar 2017

    This is still the best rabbit food you'll find anywhere. My Angora is a really picky eater but he loves this feed :)

  15. The best rabbit food

    Posted by Lesly on 1st Mar 2017

    As someone who always wants to take THE best care of my animals I possibly can, I spare no expense; I do research, I ask vets and veteran owners, and I form educated opinions. In my aforementioned opinion, this is THE best rabbit food out there, as the primary ingredients are hay-based and not corn and other nonsense fillers, which are the equivalent of feeding your bunny McDonalds everyday. My rabbits love it!!

  16. The Best!

    Posted by Melisa on 10th Feb 2017

    My rabbit LOVES her Sherwood Pet Health pellets! She gets a small scoop in the morning as she is a great hay eater and she does so well with this combination!

  17. Healthy bunnies

    Posted by Judie Fizer on 31st Jan 2017

    since I switched my bunny's to Sherwood I've had healthy, energetic and happy bunnies.

    They seldom molt nothing like when they were on Oxbow.

    I'd like feeding them the pure natural bunny food of Sherwood Forest

  18. rabbit food

    Posted by chrissy on 12th Jan 2017

    best food ever. smells great nice green color has no junk in it and my bunny loves it.

  19. The Best!

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Jan 2017

    Sherwood Adult Professional Rabbit Pellets have helped several rescue bunnies regain digestive health in just a few days. Plus, they love them! I feed all my bunnies Sherwood.

  20. One of the best there is!

    Posted by Unknown on 5th Jan 2017

    My rabbits love it. They are all healthy, have no digestive upsets, and chow down on the pellets and all the hay I can provide. I order this food routinely, and panic a little when the 19 lb. box runs low. Which reminds me, I need to order some more. Thirty-two foster house rabbits eat a lot of food!

  21. Best Food

    Posted by Candice on 16th Dec 2016

    My 4 rabbits love this food. They run to their bowls when they hear it drop in. Super healthy rabbits, no digestive issues and they eat a ton of hay.

  22. Rabbits love it!!!

    Posted by Lara Nock on 12th Dec 2016

    I have been feeding our rabbits these pellets for a few years. I can't say I thought about them a whole bunch until we recently purchased a new rabbit. He came with the pellets he had been eating. His older pellets were grey compared to the Sherwood pellets, which have a vibrant green color in comparison. Our new rabbit was not as interested in eating as our other rabbits, who greet me excitedly every time I come around, hoping for yummy treats. It took about three days after 5 days of weaning him off his grey pellets, onto the Sherwood pellets before he too began to greet me for food. He is now the friendliest rabbit we have. I think he is grateful for his change in diet.

  23. Great Food!

    Posted by Mary on 12th Dec 2016

    I have been feeding this to my older rabbits and to my dentally compromised young rabbit, who has had his incisors removed. He's supposed to be a Flemish mix, but bad teeth stunted his growth, so we're trying to make up for lost time with the Sherwood pellets. He can't wait for meal time! Also had a report from a fellow rabbit rescuer about a little lionhead the vets said there was nothing to be done for her severe digestive problems. After a short while on Sherwood, she is eating and digesting well and gaining weight.

  24. Amazing Pet Health

    Posted by Patrick on 6th Dec 2016

    We really love our Sherwood Bunny food. Whenever I see a bunny that isn't on Sherwood, I am reminded how Sherwood keeps our Bunny's fur nice and soft.
    I only wish we could buy Sherwood horse feed as well.

  25. Great!

    Posted by Linda on 17th Oct 2016

    I tried the Didestive a Tablets first, then discussed this with Bob and Dave. Which was very helpful. My one bunny took to the adult formula when I tried it first, then tried the Orifessionsl red bag, she loved it. It is nice how she adjusts the amount her body needs. She is a good hay eater, so I stick with this one and put a little of the adult formula in the bowl also over night in case she wants it too. She went from Oxbow to thousand I a happy with the results along with the Digestive tablets.
    My other bunny took some time to try it. Dave suggested to keep trying and stir it well with his food from American Pet Diner, and after a couple weeks, loves it. Thanks Dave! No more molls sis and bad fillers! I was shocked to learn that these other name brands had such a low level of the main I ingredient hay! I am glad HRS told me about Sherwood, along with their website explaination in great detail education of their products, free samples and super reviews!

  26. BEST EVER FOOD

    Posted by MANDY on 12th Oct 2016

    MY RABBITS LOVE THIS FOOD. THATS ALL THEY WILL EAT.

  27. Amazing Food

    Posted by Maria B on 29th Sep 2016

    My rabbit love it and I really can see the diference in her fur.

  28. Excellent Rabbit Food

    Posted by Sarah on 27th Sep 2016

    My bunny can be a picky eater, but she loves the Sherwood Professional Rabbit Food. After only a short time on this food, her energy level is high, her coat is silkier than ever and her litter box does not offend the nose!

  29. the best in the world and the best people in the world creating it

    Posted by Judie Fizer on 23rd Sep 2016

    I cannot say enough good about Sherwood Forest Products for the company that makes it.

    They are caring and giving, if they make a mistake in your order they will send you the proper product immediately!

    If you're not feeding your bunny Sherwood you're doing them harm because it's the best and to me the only proper rabbit food on the market I've used them since the company's Inception and I'll use nothing else, I love these guys!

  30. Great stuff

    Posted by Ann on 29th Aug 2016

    I've been using it for a while now & the difference is huge, especially for my elderly guy ( 13 1/2) ; his coat is so shiny & soft and he looks so healthy.

    Great great product, would definitely recommend to everyone & a quick word about David Sherwood, he is absolutely the best; there is not a question he doesn't answer, if he is not sure he finds out & more than that , he stands behind his products & will do anything to help you out. Finding Sherwood Forest is a real blessing!!!

  31. Still the Best!

    Posted by Jen on 9th Jul 2016

    I've been using this food for a while now after switching from Oxbow. My three rabbits absolutely love it! I don't have to worry about GMOs or any other crap in their food, and it even smells nice and fresh! My rabbits had some health issues before switching to this food like copious shedding that seemed to last forever (beyond what is a normal shed for a rabbit). Now, their coats look beautiful. They still shed of course, but it's not as severe and constant as it was before. Their energy levels have improved, and they are all extremely healthy. One of my buns has chronic allergy problems and her congestion improved quite a bit once switching to this food. I'm very grateful that there is a company out there making such a high quality, reasonably priced product. When thinking about the long-term health and quality of life of your buns, this one is a no-brainer! Thanks Sherwood Forest!

  32. My girls love it

    Posted by Bev on 29th Jun 2016

    I have two lionhead beauties that love this food. They wait and circle when they know it's coming. If I happen to forget momentarily I get the stare down. This was highly recommended as THE BEST and I can see why. I can see and smell the quality.

  33. BUNNY LOVES IT

    Posted by S on 28th Jun 2016

    I have a holland lop who is about 3 lbs and 1 year old. He meets me at the cage door and goes crazy whenever I feed him this food. He LOVES it. Thanks.

  34. Delicious, Nutritious, Worth the Money

    Posted by Mary on 15th Jun 2016

    Having just rescued a couple of female rabbits who graced us with a total of 14 babies, I am very happy to be feeding the mamas with the high quality Adult Pro Pellets. I am also feeding them to my 6 "teenage" bunnies and two young orphans. They all love the taste; I love the smell and the freshness, as well as the excellent ingredients.

  35. Adult Pro Pellets

    Posted by Kristy Ogden on 25th May 2016

    Percy, my 15 lb Flemish Giant bun, was having GI issues because he refused to eat fiber - no pellets and no hay. Your product changed that. Thank you SO MUCH for helping me make my boy healthy again. There are no words to express how grateful I am.

  36. Excellent high quality rabbit food!

    Posted by Jen on 24th May 2016

    I used to feed my rabbits Oxbow, but I was looking for something grain free and higher quality. This food is fresh, healthy, and my rabbits love it. One of them was a little heavy, and she leaned right out once starting these pellets. She also had some allergies that improved a lot after starting this food. I am very impressed and I would recommend Sherwood Forest over all of the other GMO-laden commercial garbage on the market. Thank you very much to Sherwood Forest for offering such a well-priced top-notch food!

  37. Soft fur & bright eyes

    Posted by Patrick Mohney on 23rd May 2016

    We just love how Sherwood Professional formula makes our Holland Lops fur so soft and his eyes so bright.
    We just know that we are feeding our pet the very best food available.

  38. Behavior Difference

    Posted by MK on 15th May 2016

    We adopted our holland lop Dec. 2014. Her behavior was sporadic and unpredictable and she didn't consistently use the litter box, but she would chew it to pieces. I figured some of this behavior was from changing homes/surroundings, but I also figured some of it was nutrition related. Her previous owners had been feeding her bunny "junk food", the cheapest food from the big box store. They told us she loves it and doesn't really eat much hay. Well, I knew that had to change so I started investigating and found Sherwood Forest. They sent a sample and our bunny loved it! It is so fresh and a rich green compared to others. I started giving her the Sherwood Forest Adult Supplement Pellets in the morning and made sure Timothy hay was always available. She liked the pellets just ok initially. There were a couple of weeks that she didn't eat much of anything, she wanted her old junk food. But eventually she came around and started eating the whole serving of pellets as well as hay daily. Over the course of several months of her new eating regime (we added a little veg & fruit after she was consistent with hay & pellets) her behavior started to change too. She became calm and more friendly. She also started using her litter box all the time for pee & most of the time for poo. She LOVES her pellets now and sticks her head in the measuring scoop for a first bite before they even get in the bowl. We are convinced Sherwood Forest makes the best rabbit supplement out there. Our bunny is healthy & happy!

  39. Good Enough To Eat

    Posted by Mary on 4th May 2016

    You open the bag and it smells like apple pomace, good enough to eat myself! I appreciate that the pellets are made very recently and contain no corn, soy, or wheat. I have no problem feeding even my adult rabbits (all but one are rescues)pellets with alfalfa because the alfalfa makes up a very small part of their diet, the rest being timothy, oat and orchard grass hays. Great product!

  40. Bunny love

    Posted by Dorothy on 3rd May 2016

    My 2 house buns really love the Sherwood pellets. They are both mini's so the pellet size is great for them. When they hear the food bucket open, they are sitting at the bowl, waiting.

  41. Wonderful fresh pellets, but with a question..

    Posted by Crystal on 29th Apr 2016

    had to mix them in with the old to get my bunnies to start eating them, But once they got used to them, they loved them.

    I have a question though. I have 2 rabbits that are great hay eaters and one who barely touches her hay. I have tried all kinds of different hay with no success. I have been giving her the normal amount of limited pellets and daily greens. She has not had any health issues, but I am concerned about her long term health. We are still working on bonding, so she currently eats separate from the other 2. I wanted to try the unlimited timothy based pellets for her, but am wondering the best way to do that once they are all bonded and eating together, since it would be difficult to give her unlimited and give the other 2 limited professional pellets. I am wondering what you might suggest in that situation?



    BIOLOGIST ANSWER: I would provide the Adult complete version and unlimited hay to all three bunnies. Then the two bunnies that are eating lots of hay (and probably some of the complete pellets) you can supplement their diet by giving them a small bowl of PROFESSIONAL pellets at a specific feeding time where they will quickly gobble them up.

  42. Love it!

    Posted by Stephanie on 6th Apr 2016

    My buns love it and I love how fresh and clean it smells. It's a great product and arrives fast!

  43. Best Food on the Market

    Posted by Faith on 5th Apr 2016

    I've owned rabbits for years and done extensive research on nutrition needs and diet and I always buy Sherwood Forest. These pellets are the best, nutrition packed, essential for rabbits. Sherwood Forest is a step above Oxbow and becoming more and more preferred by members of the House Rabbit Society.

  44. Rabbits love it!!

    Posted by Briann Mobley on 23rd Mar 2016

    My 2 rabbits, TurBo and Hazel, love this food and so do we! Every morning they get so excited to get their food, they are trying to climb out of their cage to get it when it's food time.

  45. Very healthy and inexpensive

    Posted by Jonathan Chigges on 15th Mar 2016

    My rabbit, Gunny, loves the food and is always racing to his chow bowl when he hears the pellets rustling around. The 0.75 oz per lbs seems to be a very good sizing for Gunny at 3 lbs with fresh greens to supplement and all the Timothy Hay he can handle. I'll definitely be purchasing from this company again. 5/5.

  46. The Best Available

    Posted by Lynda Hart on 9th Mar 2016

    The adult rabbit food is the only kind I will ever get for our rabbit. It really helps keep her GI tract from getting soft stool.

  47. Doc Loves It!

    Posted by Angie on 8th Mar 2016

    We found our domestic Lionhead rabbit to be finicky about his food. Wouldn't eat plain pellets and would only eat half the variety in the 'fancy' rabbit foods. We found Doc to eat this food very easily, with NO unwanted pieces left in the bottom of the bowl. I loved how fresh the food is and that it arrived very quickly. Thank you!

  48. Bunny goes bonkers

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Mar 2016

    My lionhead loves this food. I recently switched to this from the other adult food offered at Sherwood as he does better eating hay along with this.

  49. Fresh tasty rabbit food

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Feb 2016

    My three rabbits have free access to the outdoors to eat anything they want. I make the concentrated rabbit food available to them a little at a time and they love it.

  50. Excellent Product

    Posted by Mary Marvin on 24th Feb 2016

    I have a rabbit with skin allergies and wanted to try natural pellets with no timothy. So happy I found your professional rabbit food. It smells good enough for me to eat and my rabbit loves it. I started my young Lionhead rescues on the pellets for young rabbits and graduated them to the professional food. They love it, and I'm thinking to switch all of my rabbits to it. It's great!
