These nuggets are made with our unique blend of grass, herbs, plants and other forage ingredients, developed to replicate your rabbits’ ancestral diet.
In crafting our nuggets, we took inspiration from the Great British hedgerow, and tried to capture the essence of their ideal diet. Rabbits are adept at drawing fibre and key nutrients from a wide range of sources, and that’s a principle we’ve always strived to follow. It took us over a year working with nutritionists and a leading agricultural college to perfect the blend.
When the crop reaches the perfect age it is cut and dried within 3 hours. This allows any excess water to evaporate before being harvested and captures all of the natural goodness.
The grass is then blended with a range of hedgerow ingredients such as nettle leaves, lemon balm and dandelion, all of which are naturally packed with beneficial vitamins and minerals, as well as being deliciously tasty and adding variety into your rabbits’ diet. What’s more, because the recipe is based on our classic Excel formula, we’re confident that your rabbits will just love it!
