Local Hay!

Local hay can be way less expensive than hay from the pet store. I found these through the RabbitsOnline.net “Canada East” board, and called around to confirm the info (but do keep in mind that supplies are always changing). Remember that alfalfa and other legume hays are high in protein and not recommended for most adult rabbits, except maybe as an occasional treat or in very limited amounts — speak with your vet to find out what’s right for your bun.
