Is Alfalfa Bad for Adult Rabbits?
You may have read on-line or heard your vet and others say that adult rabbits should not eat alfalfa. You may have even taught this yourself. The idea of feeding foods containing alfalfa may scare or anger you. How alfalfa is actually healthier... and this may surprise you.

Thank you !

Thank you! My rabbit loves it!
Fresh, Green, Fragrant, Adored
Posted by Erica on 14th May 2013
Our rabbits weren't too interested in the pellets the first night, but the second night our buns devoured them like mad! They now beg for them each evening and go for them with fervor. We are pleased with the quality and price, and like the information Sherwood Forest gives us on the quality. We'll be return customers for certain. Thank you for the free sample...made all the difference!
Even my dog loves it...

I forgot to mention that my dog begs for pellets as a treat!
My Rabbits Love Sherwood
Posted by P J on 11th May 2013
We've tried other pellets, some from big box stores and some mail order and we're now die-hard Sherwood pellets fans.
Will stick with the M/S - love it.
Posted by Aleta on 10th May 2013
Thank you for giving Flopsy the Fortifying Essentials to try. With this opportunity to tryit against the Maintenance and Show I have learned he has lost the taste and interest in hay separately after being on Maintenance and Show for 2 bags. With that said we will stick with the M/S. ; ) His appetite for the pellets has improved and as others have noted his coat is softer and shinier. He is a much calmer bunny and displays more affection.
I appreciate your time and care expressed for Flopsy and thank you for what you do.
Posted by Lee Ann on 9th May 2013
My bunnies health has improved dramatically.. coat is better and he is a much happier bun! Thanks.
Posted by Laura Lee on 5th May 2013
All (3) of my rabbits are in LOVE with this food. The maintenance & show formula has made all my boys (a netherland dwarf rex mix, a lionhead and a polish with blue eyes) look and feel gorgeous. Thank you for making such a wonderful.
Maintenance & Show--Great Food!!!
Posted by Sherry on 3rd May 2013
My Netherland Dwarf, Jersey Wooly & Lionhead love-love-love this food!! They used to pick at their Oxbow and would take days before they would eat it all gone. They gobble this up, and all come to the door when I shake the food container (they never did this before). It smells so fresh, it's a good price, and they eat less. I'm so glad I found Sherwood Forest,Thank You!!!!
Maintenance & Show Adult Rabbit Food
Posted by Sheena on 3rd May 2013
My two rabbits love this food. And I love how fresh it smells. Their coats are soft and shiny!
Bunny loves this food!
Posted by Penelope's Owner on 27th Apr 2013
I used to feed the highest-grades of store bought rabbit food which was good, but I wanted to try something healthier and fresher for my pet. I searched for an alternative online and found this. I bought this food a few weeks back after reading many positive reviews on rabbit forums. The food came pretty quickly and my rabbit ate the food directly out of the bag as soon as I opened it. The pellets really are green like everone says and they smell like fresh spinach (to me, anyway). They looked and smelled so good that I even wanted to eat some, myself! My bunny (an adult, but I still call her a bunny), Penelope, seems to be far less cranky and more happy/energetic overall after eating this food for only a few weeks. It's like she's thanking me in her own little rabbit way. I wish you guys sold hay because you really know about making great rabbit food!
Happy Mini lop
Posted by Brian on 24th Apr 2013
This food is great and my new bunny has more energy and has even stopped pooping so much. I have noticed that the urine has no smell and the bunny is more energetic!!
We have been using the baby bunny food for two weeks and could definitely tell a huge difference in just a couple of days.
I have never found a better food for rabbits than Sherwood Forest!
Thanks from my bunny to you!
No crazy fillers or GMO junk!
Posted by Heather - Southern Cal on 24th Apr 2013
Love your product, but most importantly our two precious bunnies LOVE your product. We spoil our buns by keeping them in the house and there is no more bad smell (after using your product for about 1.5 weeks)!! Since there is no garbage going in to our buns, their poop is great for our plants. We are thankful to you for caring enough to make a superb product. The word has to get out about Sherwood Forest...I am going to tell our local farm supply about you tomorrow!! Thanks so much. (Oh...you can't beat the shipping cost either!)
More playful on Sherwood Forest
Posted by Judith on 19th Apr 2013
I will never use Oxbow BBT again, or any of their GMO soy/wheat products.
But I do love their joint supplement.
3 days of running out of my Sherwood Forest and adding Oxbow in the mix and
Mouse went downhill fast in energy and depression.
The Sherwood arrived in the mail yesterday and within a few hours he was
perking up with increased appetite. This morning he is honking and playing
grab a** with his mate. Running all round the room, swapping mounts, with
HIM getting the better of her for a change.
Resting now after over an hour of running around chasing each other, and him
blind! It may not be a game for them but at least he's moving his old
I will put her on Sherwood when her Natural Science is gone. They both hate
Posted by BRuder - Ohio on 3rd Apr 2013
Our newest rabbit, a 12 week old Thriant, turned her nose up at the food we were currently using. As soon as your food arrive we gave it to her and now she won't stop eating! In fact, she has so much energy she tries to jump over her 3' tall pen wall if the pen isn't covered (hence her nickname Super Bunny). Her coat shines, her eyes are bright, and she is quite robust. Our 2 year old rabbit is eating wel and seems to have less digestive problems than before. We're staying with Sherwood and will recommend it to all our rabbit-loving friends.
They love it!
Posted by Michele LaSarso on 2nd Apr 2013
I have always strived to take the best care of my bunnies-so when I found this food-I gave it a try-took them a little bit to get used to it-but now they love it-They are both 5 yrs old and have been on this food for close to a yr. they look great and are extremely healthy-no health issues at all-tx for making scuh a great product!
I trust this food!
Posted by Unknown on 26th Mar 2013
I am so glad that I found Sherwood Forest! I do not trust most foods in the stores. They have all this crazy stuff added. Sherwood smells fresh and my rabbits love it! It really is the best food for so many reasons!
Best food ever!!
Posted by Alyssa on 25th Mar 2013
This is by far the best rabbit food there is I don't have a rabbit yet but when I get one I'm going to feed Sherwood forest I used to think oxbow was the best but not any more oxbow is better than most brands but it not vary good it has soy & wheat in it so if you have a rabbit get this food 5 STAR*
Fresh awesome feed
Posted by Nola and Rupert on 20th Mar 2013
If my bunnies can talk, they probably will be saying this, "We love Sherwood pellets. We would try to act cute by begging for more and our owner would never resist us. Thanks Sherwood for making our tummy healthy and fur shiny and beautiful. That makes us bink and show funny tricks to make our owner happy. Now, everyone is happy."
Probably not like that but I assume it's close enough. Thanks Sherwood for such great product
Smells fresh...rabbits love it
Posted by Lee on 18th Mar 2013
Happy bunnies, all three EAT this pellet unlike the regular pet store brands! I have noticed an improvement in each ones individual health; eyes, coat, energy are better. Thank you so much for making a great product :)
Love more than Oxbow.
Posted by Amanda on 17th Mar 2013
"I wanted to thank you for everything that you do! I used to buy oxbow, I still buy toys, treats and vitamins from them, but I wanted to buy the pellets in bulk so I did a google search and found this company. I got a sample to check it out and the bunnies loved it. I've been ordering it for about a year now and they still gobble it up. Thanks so much. :)"
Best Food Ever!
Posted by Unknown on 16th Mar 2013
My flemish giant rabbit got sick on store purchased rabbit pellets. I found these during an on line search and got the free sample. Her health improved right away and she is healthier than she has ever been. Love this food.
Super fast shipping and amazing product!
Posted by Sonn on 14th Mar 2013
I always get my bunnies food 2 days after ordering!
I was a little skeptical about it having alfalfa in it with my adult rabbits. But after using the adult pet rabbit food for over a month my rabbits look and feel better than ever. My youngest rabbit who is super sensitive to food finally has normal poops!
It smells so fresh and it's so green! I am used to dull green or even brown colored pellets that give off a faint hay smell but Sherwood pellets are bright green and smell strongly of fresh hay.
The rabbits love it, I love it and even my dogs try to steal it.
Received it in 2 days!!
Posted by Unknown on 12th Mar 2013
Great food, great price! Bob was incredibly helpful when I needed to change my order before it shipped.
Best rabbit food I've seen...
Posted by Synneva on 10th Mar 2013
I could see how green and fresh the pellets were before I opened the bag. Once opened they smelled amazing and fresh. Definitely the most aromatic rabbit pellets I've ever purchased. I am still in the process of switching Ripley over. I'm probably doing it more slowly than necessary, but I want to use up her old pellets. So far I have noticed that she gets more excited when I fill up her dish. She is already super healthy, so I haven't noticed a difference in that department. But since she is less than a year, I'm hoping that being on a super high quality diet will affect her long-term health and longevity. Thanks Sherwood for developing such a wonderful food.
Great food----best you can buy
Posted by Susan on 7th Mar 2013
My rabbit has been pawing his bowl for more and even prefers it over hay. My vet said I need to still offer hay for the longer fibers to move the gut, but the site says it can dilute nutrition from the pellet, so I am only giving a small amount of hay daily with the pellets. I can tell that Cookie definitely prefers the pellets over his other food and it definitely is based on green plants rather than starchy junk---you can tell by the smell and color. I'll be back for more, and I'm eager to try the hay-free formulation, too.
Imy buns love the flavor & freshness
Posted by My Rare Rabbit on 4th Mar 2013
The food is gobbled up. It's such a nice aroma in the middle of winter. The buns coming running as soon as they hear the lid on the can. I tried to fool them with another brand. They'd have no part of it. We just finished in ARBA show yesterday. Our BF15, Moonlight, took first place in fur. First places in junior does and the judge said she had the best condition he'd seen all day in a junior doe! We told the judge we feed Sherwood Forest Maintenance, shipped out of Utah. He said dont chnage it! Thanks for the great food!!
Posted by Unknown on 1st Mar 2013
I only deduct for the price-- its a little pricey BUT I can't stop feeding it to my hollands because while the protein was a little low for show feed, they still have muscle to show and I can show them a bit longer. Their coats are amazing--beautiful like never before
I even caught the cat sampling it!
Posted by Tammy on 1st Mar 2013
I had my rabbit on a good rabbit feed. I had run out and had to make a mad dash to the local pet super market for something to hold Stanley over until I could get my daughter to pick me up a bag of my food from Tractor supply. So I buy this food and rabbit smelled it and wouldn't touch it. So the next morning I made sure my daughter would pick up my normal rabbit food cause the store is by her house and it 30 miles away from me.She accidently picked up the wrong kind. Stanley didnt like it either but he ate it. So I jumped on the internet and went searching for some good food and found this site. I purchased my food and it got here really fast. as soon as I opened my box, Stanley came over and tugged on the plastic and went to eating. I happen to Love the smell of rabbit food and Hay. This stuff smells amazing and Stanley loves it.
The cat sometimes lays in the rabbit cage when its open for Stanley to run around the living room. They sometimes even lay side by side and nap. So one day I was sitting on the couch and I saw the cat sniffing Stanleys food and she actually ate a little bit...guess she thought she would see what all the fuss was about...LoL !!! So needless to say I will be ordering again...it gets her fast and the quality is amazing...5 stars!!!
best food ever

my rabbits love it
freshest food i have ever seen
Posted by Erika on 26th Feb 2013
I usually like to wait a year before i review a food..but i noticed an immediate increase in my bunnies energy, which is wonderful. Muscle tone is amazing.
My Five Rabbits range in age from 2 to seven, they have been on it 3 months and their coats are coming in quite dense.
It is AMAZING food..so fresh i am tempted to have some myself..LOL
Posted by Jody on 26th Feb 2013
My dwarf lionhead LOVES your food! Enough said!!! Thank you for what you do for our bunny friends!

My rabbits love it, i love thatbit is healthy for them, and i love the price!
Posted by Natalie on 17th Feb 2013
Love this brand! Thanks.
Will continue to buy! Great food, fast shipping!
Posted by Natalie on 17th Feb 2013
My bunnies coats are shiny, healthy, and their pellets don't have an odor! They also love the taste! I trust this food and the company it comes from. I will continue to buy it as long as I have little babies running around!
Awesome value compared to other foods!
Posted by Susan on 15th Feb 2013
I love this stuff! It works out to cost me as much per month as Oxbow Essentials, and has a lot better ingredients. I'm very happy.

My bunnies love it!
A Soft Coat!
Posted by Gregory on 12th Feb 2013
I can't say enough how much Shiro has thrived on it. He's been on it since he was 8 weeks old, will be a year in a few weeks. His coat is so glossy and soft.
Great product. He loved it.
Posted by Unknown on 11th Feb 2013
When I opened the bag, I could smell the freshness. My rabbit who is normally a pick eater went right for it and asked for more.
Loves the food !
Posted by Irene on 10th Feb 2013
I just started feeding this rabbit food about 3 days. Blackie just loves it I have a little bit of his other food left. I gave him this new stuff and he does not want the other stuff. I read the ingred. on other package and there is animal fat in it. he is a 15 year old rex-Buck. and a real sweet heart.
Go crazy for it.
Posted by M. on 8th Feb 2013
We got a 19lb box delivered yesterday! Just in time, too...the previous bag was just about gone! We've got four bunnies now who all go crazy for it. The newest addition's coat seems to be getting softer and smoother by the day! Thanks again for such a great product :)
Posted by LMT on 8th Feb 2013
My 16 week old bun started out on the growth formula at 8 weeks and has been on the maintenance since she turned 12 weeks. Her weight is fantastic. Solid muscle. She does seem to get bored with her options. Pellets or pellets. I wish I could offer her organic hay and veggies but this is a completely balanced diet that would be compromised if I were to do that. These pellets are first class. I wouldn't spend money on lesser quality I guess I am just sad not to be able to offer her mental enrichment with healthy raw foods.
The absolute best rabbit food
Posted by Unknown on 6th Feb 2013
My daughter has 4 rabbits, some of whom were very fat and shedding a lot. Since we started them on Sherwood Forest natural rabbit food, their coats are so full, shiny, and they are not shedding like they used to. Two of her rabbits were obese (really), and now they are healthy, happy, and trim the way they should be. The rabbits LOVE the food. Using Sherwood Forest natural rabbit food is the best thing we could ever have done for her rabbits. They are really, really healthy now.
Posted by Jody on 29th Jan 2013
Maintenance and Show = Thee best!!
The Very Best!
Posted by Laura on 26th Jan 2013
Best rabbit food EVER, thank you!
Wild Cottontail Loves It !
Posted by Magellan's Mom on 24th Jan 2013
I accidentally became the mother of a "born-wild" cottontail rabbit that could not be released. He is quite different in every way from my holland lop, and even his dietary needs and tastes are different. My holland lop eats pretty much anything and so far loves this food! The cottontail however would never eat ANY of the store bought pellets (he simply didnt recognize it as food). Obviously his diet consists mostly of fresh grass, but even Texas runs out of grass in the winter and leaves me with a hungry bunny. Sherwood Forest pellets are the only pellets he has ever eaten and he loves them! They must be made of very fresh natural ingredients! Trust me, he wouldn't eat it if it wasnt! Because he has such an active metabolism we are not trying watch his weight. So, we are supplementing his diet with fresh greens, orchard hay, and occasional treats. But these pellets make a wonderful standard 24/7 food.
Biologically appropriate food - finally!
Posted by Jennifer on 24th Jan 2013
Bunny seems to enjoy it. And I feel good knowing it has ingredients that are so much better for her to digest.
My bunnies love it!
Posted by Alexis on 24th Jan 2013
My two rabbits really like the taste of it, and ever since they've been on it their coats have gotten better. Only reason for 4 stars is due to the price.
My rabbit likes it better than Oxbow
Posted by Unknown on 22nd Jan 2013
My Flemish Giant is 3 years old and is a house rabbit. She's been healthy all these years but suddenly developed soft poo that would stick to her behind. I researched and discovered the pellets and hay I had been giving her all her life could be the cause. I bought her the Oxbow brand food and Oxbow brand hay. Very expensive. In trying to find a site where I could buy it cheaper I found this site. I got the free sample to check it out. I mixed the Oxbow with this food and my rabbit picked through it. I wasn't sure which brand she really wanted so I put two bowls in her cage. One with Oxbow and one with Sherwood. She ate the Sherwood and didn't touch the Oxbow. I'm happy to say she is back to being healthy and happy and no more messy backside. Her fur is soft and shiny. I wish I had known about this food 3 years ago when I got her. These are the only pellets I will buy her from now on.
bunnies are already looking amazing!!!
Posted by Amy on 22nd Jan 2013
for whatever reason we had to switch the bunnies to another food for a time. we once again started loosing litters and 6-8 old kits for no reason. The rabbits and babies have been back on Sherwood for little over a week. All are eating like crazy and already i can see a sheen coming back to their fur. Picky eaters are no longer picky either. I could kick myself for switching for a short time just because money was tight and it was difficult to get tot he post office due to my work schedule as it was always closed. I was just wasting my money on the other stuff/feeds.
Bunny flops for Sherwood Forest!
Posted by Rhona on 17th Jan 2013
My rabbit "Sky" loves the food, before I ordered my previous shipment, I had to order a back up at petsmart, she didn't like it at all. She literally tipped over her bowl. Ever since she tried sherwood forest, she would eat so much of it. After she eats she always bunny flops. Its so cute. I just don't know what I'de do without your rabbit food. I just want to say thank you because my rabbit really loves your food. I'm going to have to order again, another 12lb.
They love the food!
Posted by Ashley on 17th Jan 2013
Love your food, by the way - it has done wonders to the condition of my 8+ yr old Bunny, whom I first started feeding it to. My other two angoras seem to be heading toward better conditioning as well.
Smells and looks wonderful !
Posted by Carolyn on 15th Jan 2013
I just wanted to let you know that I received my order on the 14th. I can't believe how quickly and how fresh it both looks and smells. Now, I'm working on mixing it in with Oxbow feed which doesn't look nor smell as fresh as your food. And, Oxbow is actually more expensive than your food.
Amazing Food; Amazing Customer Service
Posted by Ondrea on 14th Jan 2013
My bunny loves this food. My cats even try to eat it! But the most impressive thing to me is how fast I always receive my order!! It shows up on my doorstep within 3 days, every time.
My rabbits love it
Posted by carol new jersey on 12th Jan 2013
I cant believe how my new rabbit mom loves this just ordered some for the babies thanks for a great product
Posted by Denver, CO on 8th Jan 2013
I have been using M/S for about a year now, and all 6 of my rabbits go insane for it! They love it so much, we call it "bunny crack!" My rabbits look great and are very healthy on this product. It costs less than other leading brands too! It makes me feel great to know I am giving my precious pets the best quality food available. I highly recommend Sherwood Forest Natural Rabbit Food!
This is the best rabbit food I've ever bought!
Posted by Lisa on 7th Jan 2013
Our holland lop, Flopsy, is 9 months old. She was a department store baby who was very thin when we got her. I fed her commercial food for a while, but I knew it was not really good for her. So glad I found Sherwood Forest! I weaned her off of the commercial food over a two week period of time, and now she can't wait to get fed in the morning. She has clear eyes, a shiny coat, and is very happy. The high quality of the pellets is easy to see and smell. Just compare it to any commercial brand off the shelf. Hands down it's the best stuff around. Thank you. :)
The Only Food My Bunny will eat!
Posted by Mindy on 5th Jan 2013
We've had our bunny, Nutmeg, a Mini Holland Lop a little over a year. When we first got him, he was very picky about eating his pellets. I found Sherwood Forest Natural Rabbit Food while searching the web and bought a 12 lb bag. Needless to say, it is the ONLY pellet food he will eat. The food is always fresh and as soon as Nutmeg hears me get the bag out, he comes running! Sherwood Forest offers prompt fulfillment and shipping as well. I just received his last 12 lb box Christmas Eve. He was a very happy Christmas bunny!
They are loving it
Posted by Raenell on 5th Jan 2013
Now I have 3 girls, the first two still love these pellets and the 3rd girl is getting used to them, she can't seem to stay out of her pellet bowl! Thanks so much for a healthy pellet for my buns!
Jack loves them.
Posted by Kriss on 5th Jan 2013
"My bunny Jack thanks you for doing such a great job in this frigid weather. He loves your pellets!"
Posted by Jennifer on 3rd Jan 2013
just following up on my original review... at the time, I loved how nutritious this food is, but my bunnies weren't quite so keen on it. all in all, it took about a month before they were diving into the sherwood pellets the way they did their previous pellet (which I'm sure had added sugars and junk in it)... now, they can't get enough of the sherwood!
Thank you !
Posted by Angelina on 17th Dec 2012
Thanks for making great rabbit food :)
Posted by Claire Slomski on 5th Dec 2012
The quality of the feed is always good, the rabbits love it and their coats and health always improve while on the feed. Much better than the brown typical feed you get other places. Very happy with it!
Posted by Unknown on 5th Dec 2012
Our two rabbits love your feed ... heck, I even tried a bit of it and enjoyed it's spinach-like flavor!!!
We love the food
Posted by Surain on 3rd Dec 2012
Thanks allot! My Bunnies LOVE YOUR FOOD! THEY LITERALLY GO NUTS FOR IT! Keep up the great quality feed! :D
What a coat!
Posted by Wendy on 16th Nov 2012
My holland has been on Maintenance and Show food since late August. His coat is amazing! It's almost ridiculous how dense and soft it is. I've also used it on a bunny I purchased-- and after two weeks, watched her coat go from a bit strawish in texture, to soft, fluffy and smooth. And of course, they are all excited to eat EVERY time.
Posted by Carissa, Spot, and Jumper on 15th Nov 2012
I just started eating your adult food and I really like that I get to have some alfalfa again. My brothers just transitioned from baby food to adult food and they haven't complained at all! My people tell me that my coat is already looking healthier. Thanks!
Very best rabbit food
Posted by Melanie on 7th Nov 2012
Wish I could find guinea pig pellets of this this quality for my pigs !!! Your rabbit food makes all the others junk. I dont know why
oxbow is so recomended. Full of soy and fillers!! Thanks for so much information. I will tell anyone I know with rabbits to check out your website.
Love! Love! Love!
Posted by Unknown on 28th Oct 2012
Sherwood Forest is always made fresh! My two bunnies love this food! Always get very quickly in the mail! My bunnies have never had any digestion problems of any kind. It is the perfect rabbit food!
We gave our rabbits the taste test!
Posted by Bobbi on 22nd Oct 2012
One bowl was filled with the only choice of rabbit food available at the local feed store and the other was this very obvious fresh stuff the postman brought. Our male, normally a gentleman to his mate rudely pushed his way in to make sure he got his share of the good stuff!!! We gave away the feedstore food since there is no going back now.....
Fresh Green Pellets
Posted by Unknown on 1st Oct 2012
Sherwood Forest provided service above and beyond. The pellets are green (the color of hay) as opposed to the brown pellets of other manufacturers. A great pellet made without soy and freshly made. My bunnies are enjoying the pellets. Keep up the good work.
Happy and healthy
Posted by Liz on 18th Sep 2012
Nibbles is now 6 months old and looks happy and healthy thanks to your product. I was at a loss when we got him because I could not find food that was suitable for a young bunny at the stores around where I live and that's when I found your company on line. Not only are your prices reasonable, but they were delivered quickly. I also appreciate all the information your website has and your free samples. Please stay in business and I will spread the word around.
PS. Nibbles says his food is yummy.
Delicious, Healthy Food!!
Posted by Meredith P. on 15th Sep 2012
Our rabbits absolutely LOVE Sherwood pellets! They practically attack me in the morning to get it and we sometimes use it as a treat since they like it so much. We would never switch to another brand since no other pellet looks or smells so fresh. The care and research that has gone into producing this rabbit food is above and beyond. Thanks for helping me keep my rabbits healthy!
Posted by Imbrium on 30th Aug 2012
my bunnies were less than thrilled with this when I started introducing it (we're transitioning from whatever brand of pellets the breeder I got them from had been feeding - she gave me a big bag to take home), but they're starting to enjoy it more... which is good, because they were gonna be stuck with it either way since it's the most nutritious bunny food I've come across (and I've really been looking).
I had them at the vet today, so I took the ingredient info and brochure that came with my free sample of the sherwood forest adult food to get my vet's opinion about it. he was impressed with the ingredients and quality of the food and strongly recommended that I stick with it.
Posted by Thalinna Barker on 28th Aug 2012
My rabbit Navarre loves this feed!! He is sooo anxious when it comes to feeding time. He cannot get enough. Compared to his other feed he was never that excited and actually kind of mopy. I must say Sherwoods Rabbit Feed even smells alot better than the other brands I have used. This has been the best feed I have ever purchased.
Love this Rabbit Food!
Posted by Stephanie on 25th Aug 2012
Shiro has been on Sherwood since he was 8 weeks old and we put him on the baby food. He's graduated to the maintenance formulation with no problems. We're "lifers" here!!!
BEST QUALITY RABBIT FEED AVAILABLE!!
Posted by Cheryl Marlow on 12th Aug 2012
My rabbits love this feed. There has not been any scratching or wasted feed since I switched to Sherwood. Excellent shipping times also. =)
My Rabbit is Glad I Discovered This Food!
Posted by Joan on 23rd Jul 2012
My rabbit loves this food, and I do too because it smells so fresh and HEALTHY! (maybe I should sprinkle some on my salad - ha ha!) It is so much better than the commercial feed I used to give to her. She is a German angora and the silkiness of her fur attests to the high quality of the ingredients used in this food. Nothing but the best for my rabbit!
I keep returning!
Posted by Clint on 10th Jul 2012
I keep returning for more feed. The rabbits can't get enough. HOWEVER, my USPS carrier told me to let you know that the box for the 19lbs needed to be wrapped tighter because it came apart. And it did. My feed was perfectly fine. I just think it was a problem for the USPS. Either way, I'm buying as long as the bunnies keep chowing down.
results were immediate
Posted by Lacy on 30th Jun 2012
My husband decided to get me a new zealand baby bunny, and I immediately started looking for the best possible food for her. When I stumbled upon Sherwood Forest Natural Rabbit Food, I was sold. We ordered too late and didn't get our food until the day after we got her, so we had to buy another food to hold her up until then. When we received the baby bunny food, the results were immediate. It was perfectly sized, and she absolutely loved it. She is the picture of perfect health, and I credit her food to this. We absolutely love this food, and I recommend it to everyone I talk to!!!!
Best Food You Will Find for Your Bunny!
Posted by TRS on 21st Jun 2012
Before coming across Sherwood Forest, I feed my rabbits food from Tractor Supply. It was very cheap, 25 pound bag for $8 bucks. I ordered a free sample, and could not believe the difference in just two days. My bunnies seemed happier and friendlier. I ordered the biggest box of maintenance and show, and everyone loves it.
Here are the BIG noticeable differences.
1. My doe gave birth to a bigger and healthier litter when on the Sherwood food, rather than while she was on the Tractor Supply food. First litter she had while on the junk food was only two kits, one healthy, one sickly and died. I put her on the Sherwood food two weeks before breeding her again. 12 days ago she had a super healthy litter of three. What amazes me is the first litter opened their eyes on the 11th day, and didn't come out of the nest box until about 4 weeks old. This litter that was born 12 day ago opened their eyes on the 8th day, and today they want to come out of their nest box! Much healthier and stronger kits because of this food!
2. Almost no urine smell AT ALL!
3. Everyone's coat looks wonderful. I have a buck in the process of molting and his coat still looks great.
4. Spunky, Peaches, Lilly-Belle, Hopscotch, and Poppy are a bunch of happy, healthy bunnies!
Now, if Mr. Sherwood could just make natural cat food for my kitty Thumper...hint hint. :)
Peter my Bunny Loves this Food

I give this food a 10 stars!!!!! My bunny's fur is amazing!!!
Better than pet store food!
Posted by Kari on 9th Jun 2012
My breeder told me about this food and I am super excited to get my buns chowing down! I have been so dissatisfied with even the "best" the pet stores have to offer. I am only sorry I haven't heard about you guys sooner. Thank you for your dedication to making bunnies' lives happier and healthier! =)

Thank u sooooo much. My bunny loves this food.
Bunnies only love your food
Posted by Ryan on 1st Jun 2012
I received the order yesterday (Thursday)...that's only 2 day shipping to Pa. Thank you again, my bunnies just love your food! They turn their noses at other brands.
The food is actually Green!
Posted by Clint on 21st May 2012
Unlike any rabbit food I've seen. The pelleted food is not gray, it is not a greenish-gray. The Rabbit food from Sherwood Forrest is Green. Last time I checked that's what wild rabbits eat, Green. Excellent product and will be buying from NO ONE else. I'm sold.

I have show rabbits and they all love the food and so do I! one of my rabbits recently got an infection on his back and lost a small patch of hair and its been only a few weeks and his hair is alredy growing back thick and healthy. I only take away a star because of the price that is not entirly to efficient for me but I still love it!
Good Food, Happy Lop.
Posted by Maribel M. on 9th May 2012
Our 1-year-old Holland Lop loves his new food! It's been about a month and we can really see a change in his demeanor. He's much more playful and affectionate & overall in a more relaxed state of mind.
The food is very fresh and extremely green. As others have stated, it really does smell delicious. Our bunny is digesting the food well & while he's always been pretty good at using his litter pan, now we have accidents less often.
While I cannot say that his droppings and urine do not smell, I can say the they don't smell as bad as when he was on another type of feed.
I would recommend this food very highly. The quality is outstanding! The prices are great and the company ships very quickly. We will definitely continue ordering from Sherwood Forest :)
My 2 Big bunnies LOVE THIS FOOD.
Posted by Surain A. on 1st May 2012
Every day at dinner time when I clean/change hay in the cage they come running from wherever they hang out in the room to the cage for this food. They now know the sound of me pouring it in the feeder so when they hear that you can bet to see 2 happy n hungry rabbits racing to their cage :D.
They really digest it well too. The droppings are very rich in color and don't smell. The urine has also become allot cleaner from this food. It doesn't smell nearly as rancid as it did when I first got them. Whatever the lady was feeding them must have not been organic because boy did their urine stink compared to how it does now.
Overall I would recommend this food to anyone with bunnies.

When I opened my feed I couldn't believe what I saw!FRESH FEED that smelled like it was made yesterday.The pellets are dense, small and so green. The feed was here in just a few days.
My bunny's new food!
Posted by Joan on 30th Apr 2012
My rabbit loved the sample of food .... so this is her new staple!
My bunnies love the feed.

I just thought I'd thank you for your food. I want my 2 wonderful bunnies to have the best food but their 5lb, $15 oxbow was to expensive! I found your food which was a much better price and so I got the sample food bag and they LOVE it. I am so pleased so I am ordering the 19lb bag and hoping it lasts a while. Thank you.
Best customer service !
Posted by Allison on 22nd Feb 2012
I just wanted to thank you for your great customer service... about a week after I ordered my free sample somebody actually called me to ask if I was satisfied with the food and invited me to leave a review. I've left 2 already, one after I ordered my sample noting the great price and a follow-up on how the food is helping my rabbit.
Our bunnies love it
Posted by Amy G. on 22nd Feb 2012
Thank you for all that you do! Our bunnies LOVE these pellets - and I'm delighted with the quality."
Glad I made the Switch!

I'm following up from a previous post on 01-09-12.
When I opened my sample package I could tell the difference from regular food immedeately. The deep shade of green and smell of fresh hay caught me as soon as I opened the box. It also had much less dust than regular food.
I mixed in my sample order with my rabbit's old brand of food and found that he was saving the old pellets for last (unfortunately, he still went for the kibbles first) and I didn't have to feed him as much.
Even though only about a fifth of his food was Sherwood pellets, I could tell the difference in my 3-year-old ND/ Mini Rex buck in about a week. He has been more cuddly and active and is slimming down a little bit. His coat is also thickening much faster than it was last year and the smell of his urine is not as harsh as it was before.
I ordered my 20lb. box on 02-17-12 and I knew my order came (from the fresh grass smell) before any of my housemates even told me that I received a package... and so did my rabbit. He was running around the kitchen, frantically waiting for me to bring it out to him, because he's too scared to walk on hardwood.
My rabbit always has a hard time molting in the summer, so I'm excited to see if changing his diet will help him out.
The Best !!

"Best food for your rabbit"
Posted by B. Johnson on 18th Jan 2012
She Stop Flipping the Bowl!
The absolute best food for your rabbits. Very fragrant, color & pellet size is great for all rabbits. Dottie says thank you for making her so healthy!
Quality for a great price!
Posted by Allison on 9th Jan 2012
I just ordered my free sample of Maintenance and Show and I'm excited reading all of the good reviews so I'm really considering making the switch from Hartz Bonanza. Usually a 4lb bag of that is $8 where I buy it, so that's $2/lb. If I buy this in bulk it's $33 after shipping for 20lb, which is $1.65/lb.
If you're thinking of not making the switch because your first thought is that it'll be pricey, think again! If you buy in bulk, you are actually saving money compared to the leading brand.
I only have one rabbit, a 3-year-old ND/ Mini Rex buck, who's not very good at eating his pellets. Now that he's getting older I really want to do all I can to keep him healthy, so I'm investing in putting him on a fresher diet. Of course, I'll have to invest in some dry storage cereal boxes if I'm going to order 20lb of this.
My NDs Love This Stuff!
Posted by Tori on 6th Dec 2011
Just cant say enough about this rabbit food, my netherland dwarfs are totally hooked on it... they used to spill their food or dump it which was a great cause of frusteration for me:( when i started with Maintenance and Show I noticed that when I mixed it in with the other food they were only eating the Sherwood pellets! So fare no usual side effects (loss of hair/appitite)...the pellets are also really small so they are much easier for them to chomp on... Thank you for this geat product
Amazing rabbit food
Posted by Jenny Carman on 11th Nov 2011
My bunny hated the rabbit food I was buying, then I tried yours. She loves it so much that given a choice between rabbit food, she goes to yours every time. She has been eating your product for over a month and is remarkably healthy. Thanks a lot!
They Love it!!
Posted by Amanda Duncan on 20th Oct 2011
Got my feed yesterday. I about fell over when I opened the box….it smelled sooooooo good! My rabbits, which hate pellets, went right to it!!! They love it!! I’m totally excited! Conrats guys….well done! Very well done!
