Nibble & Gnaw is a brand of premium quality Timothy Hay for rabbits and other small animals such as chinchillas and degus.

Timothy hay really is the mainstay and favourite of any small herbivore’s diet.  It is both high in fibre and low in protein and calcium content and is ideal for keeping your rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animal’s fragile digestive system functioning properly as well as keeping their dental health in check.

Our 1st cut timothy hay is harvested in Canada in late Spring, and Second Cut (which is the regrowth of 1st Cut) is gathered in the late summer.  The nutrient levels change relative to the season with 1st Cut being much higher in fibre with less protein and the 2nd Cut having a little more protein and a less fibre.

1st cut Timothy hay has much larger seed heads, leaves and long-stems which makes it coarser, but the long stems are great for your little herbivore as it promotes and encourages their natural chewing behaviour. 2nd cut timothy hay then is the regrowth of the 1st cut hay so it is a little softer, moister and has a larger percentage of leaves to stems which are occasionally darker in colour with being baked under the Canadian sun.  It is a little higher in protein and lower in fibre and highly nutritious for all small herbivores.

We have a very close relationship with our farmers who have a great passion for their land and grass.  We personally walk and assess the fields each year selecting only the best pivots of hay.  We send each pivot of hay for laboratory analysis to ensure it has the optimal nutritional content and is of the highest quality.

Our hay is cut and dried in the Canadian sun before being loosely stored in secure barns on our farms.  When we’re ready to sell the hay we collect it from the farmers and run it through a specially designed blow chamber to remove dust and brown leaf.  The hay is then expertly hand-packed in our own factory to ensure the highest standards of quality control.

We are so confident about the quality that we guarantee it will stay fresh for up to two years if stored correctly.

Typical Analytical Composition:
Crude Protein: 9.7%
Crude Fibre: 28.9%
Ash: 6.3%
Crude Fat: 2.5%
Moisture: 6.5 %

    My guinea pigs love the Nibble and Gnaw hay! When we first received the box of hay, they were eating it out of the packaging before it had even made it into their home. The other morning they turned their noses up at the fresh pepper at breakfast, deciding to stuff their faces with Nibble and Gnaw hay instead! The hay is thick and green and smells very fresh! Very high quality and my girls can’t wait for more to...

Took some time for my rabbit to try it, but she helps herself now. She's an extremely picky rabbit so it's great she found something she likes. She's gone of Alfalfa King which is a very similar and slightly cheaper product. But this is a great alternative.

Nibble & Gnaw sells the best & freshest long-stem hay on the market, bottom line. My fickle house rabbit is pleased and so am I. Normally to buy hay this good, truly long stem hay that is fresh and green, you'd need to buy it in a huge bale from a farm. I've done this in the past and it is not practical because who has room for a 20kg bale of hay. I am thrilled to find fresh, long...

Thought I would try a small box of Nibble and Gnaw hay as the hay looked so green and I was not disappointed. Also smelt good and best of all my daughter’s rabbits love it.

Opened the box and the smell really hits you, very green sweet-smelling hay. It was an immediate hit with our rabbits, will by again as it’s much fresher smelling (and tasting by the way our rabbits are munching it) than the previous pet shop brand we were buying. Good value for the quality delivered to your door.

I can honestly say this is without doubt, the best bag, the sweet smell of fresh hay was noticed by my 3 Guinea pigs, who immediately started wheeking. They usually get excited when I give them their daily hay, but not THIS excited! The hay was tightly packed so you get much more than you'd expect. The hay was so green and so fresh. Each stem is lovely and long too. All three pigs are devouring this faster than any...

My rabbit really enjoys this hay, I was looking for a different brand of hay as the one I used to buy has gone downhill a bit in quality. This hay is perfect, nice long stems, no little bits and no dust. Will definitely be purchasing again
