Nature’s Touch Wild Hay Review

Product:   Nature’s Touch Wild HayNature's Touch Wild Hay!

Purchase:    Pets at Home

Price:     Click on link above for latest price

Quantity:   1kg

 

Sold exclusively in the UK pets at home stores and on the website, although it is sold on amazon and ebay, the price is a lot higher than pets at home. A lovely mountain or as they call it wild hay, that comes from the spanish meadows. It is picked literally from an area of land that has not been touched for 100 years. It’s a very natural hay and has no additives. It includes a lot of herbs, flowers and veg inside and has the flower calendula, which is high in fibre and has a sweet smell. This hay really comes recommended by me because of the high quality and consistency every time I purchase a bag.

The stems are long but a little thin, but shorter than some other meadow hays. A colourful mix because of all the different species that are inside. Not something that guinea pigs can bury and cover themselves in though.

Recap on the pros and cons 🙂

Pros

  • Great quality
  • Over 40 different species that includes ones that are high in fibre
  • Smells nice

Cons

  • Could come in bigger sized bags

It would be great if they could do bigger sized quantities, just so it could last longer with one bag. It’s obviously another hay that all of my guinea pigs like eating. Wherever you place it down, it creates a nice soft area for them to sit and stand on as they eat the stems. I think it’s quite a special hay, because it has been picked from land that has just been left to whatever nature intends. Then they get all the wild species that grow, which makes for this interesting hay. There is hardly ever any little bits inside like little twigs that have to be taken out.

Usually the cost is £5.99 and it’s that price when I have always purchased it, but click the link at the top to go the pets at home website, to check the latest. You may say it’s expensive for a 1kg bag, but for what it is, it’s worth it, to give to your guinea pigs.

Lets rate it!

  1. Hi there! Thank you for putting together this review. Quick question regarding the bag size – how long does this much feed last you? I always worry about buying something online and then running out and not re-ordering it within enough time to have food on hand at all times. 

    1. I use this hay for the playpen with four guinea pigs. This bag will last about 10 days. I know what you mean, I always order when I am down to the last 3 bags, so it keeps me going until my online delivery comes. 

  2. Wow nice site Eden!

    My neighbors daughter has 3 guinea pigs and I am sure she will love all information! I will be sure to pass this along to her. 

    She was actually talking about finding another type of hay specifically, so this is something she would enjoy browsing through. Keep up the great work!

  3. Awww how adorable! My sister would love this post. She loves her guinea pig. Very informative product review and very detailed. It sounds like a good product for the little ones. Thank you for sharing, I’m sure my sister would find this very helpful.  I’ve never had a guinea pig before but I have to admit they are to cutest thing ever.

  4. Thanks for the advice on where to get it cheaper. Amazon is always a good option, but sometimes other places provide better deals. What does this hay need in order to get a score of 10 from you for smell and appearance. 9.5 is obviously great. I’m just curious as to what the extra something it needs is to get the best score.

    1. Yes I do find now by doing an internet search that Amazon isn’t always the cheapest for every product. To get the score of 10, the hay needs to more consistently have a good appearance and a nice smell. It doesn’t always have this, where another hay brand like Burgess, does have more consistency in smell and appearance. It is difficult depending on weather conditions from when the hay was grown and picked, I accept that, but there could be just a little more. It is a really lovely hay though. 

  5. That does seem a little expensive for such a small bag of hay. But, if it is the high quality you say, and you want the best for your pets, then it is probably worth it. My son has a miniature guinea pig. A Russian dwarf I think it is called. I think this hay would be great for him. What do you think?

    My other son has a big pet silver rat. Would this work for a rat as well?

    What other small pets would find this hay beneficial? Rabbits maybe?

    I appreciate you taking the time to provide this valuable information for our pets.

    1. It is a good hay to mix in with others. There are actually no dwarf guinea pig breeds, the Russian dwarf that your son has is a hamster. They are not into eating hay, just the hamster mix and some vegetables,fruits and for example cheese. 

      This hay is beneficial to rabbits and chinchillas. Thank you Curtis
