Nature's Promise Timothy Rabbit Food 5 lbs
I have three rabbits who love these pellets.
I first purchased this as an alternative when the local pet store was out of the Oxbow brand, which the vet had recommended. The rabbits really seemed to prefer them to the Oxbow pellets, and in a side-by-side visual comparison, they just look greener and more "fibery" than the Oxbow (which I have no complaints about and I think are fine).
I actually tasted each myself, believe it or not, and the Zupreem had a much fresher, summer kind of taste, kind of like fresh hay smells - the Oxbow was kind of flat and kind of dusty-tasting. Obviously "tastes better to me" isn't very scientific and doesn't speak to its nutritional value, so I did check with our new vet and they said that it was okay.
I continue to use the Oxbow hay (which is still the majority of my boys' diet), but choose Zupreem for their pellets. I've pretty much moved to getting all their food exclusively through Drs. F&S - great prices, service, and delivery, and no supply problems.
One thing to note - I would recommend getting the smaller 10 lb. bag size. There is a tendency (as I think some others have mentioned) for there to be more dust with these pellets, but I've mainly noticed it with the large 20 lb bag. It's a little more $ to get two 10 lb bags versus the 20, but the pellets get less rumbled around/broken down in the 10 so there's not much dust, and ultimately you're probably coming out even (plus, no dust!).

Love This Rabbit Food :D <3
I have been using this product for a year and a half now and I am beyond satisfied with it. My bunnies adore this food and get excited over it almost like its a treat to them. I also love the balance of fresh ingredients that are used. I love the fact this food is pesticide free. when I opened my first bag of the food I was impressed not only by the look but the smell it honestly smells like fresh cut hay. This food truly lives up to a high standard. keep in mind you don't always need what everyone else is using I learned that lesson with buying expensive popular brands that honestly were wasted due to my bunnies hating them. I highly recommend this food at least try one bag you wont regret it.

One of my rabbits had a problem with what we call poopy butt (poop stuck to his butt). I know very technical term . We could never get it to clear up. Switching to this food clreared it right up. He has had very few problems since then. It used to be really bad. I suspect now it comes from when he get too many greens. Got to watch that diet. If I had known that the fix could have been so simple I would have changed ages ago. And this is the best place to order it from that I have found. Great price and reasonable shipping.

Excellent for rabbits' digestive health!
My bunnies have had some issues with their digestive systems. I have had trouble trying to wean them off of an alfalfa diet even though I know the timothy is better for them. However, I mix the timothy food with their alfalfa food (half and half) and it seems to work fine. No further issues.
