I'm super excited as I'm about to welcome a couple of little ones!

I'm just not sure where to get my hay from - I'm based in Greater Manchester, so any suggestions would please be fantastic! I remember there was a website which was great for tester hay and the price was great, I just can't remember where that was!

Many thanks!

Hi, I get meadow hay from dustfreehay.co.uk and my Timothy hay from nature's own. Both good quality at good prices.

I've used hay and straw when I've not been organised enough to collect any but now I go to a local plant nursery and pick up a bale for £7.50

I also buy our hay from hay-and-straw.co.uk. They do Ings hay, a rye and Timothy mix or meadow hay. 9kg is £18 and delivery is free. It is always lovely quality.

Thank you everyone!
I’m so excited to have little piggies again! All I got to do is play the really fun game of; “despite being 22 and living alone my parents can not absolutely find out so whenever they visit from Bristol I need to shove them in a friend’s apartment.com”

I get mines from naturesown website its the sweet green hay. It is really green and my pigs seem to like it. Its £4.99 for i think a 3.5kg bag. Although you have to spend over £19.95 to get free delivery so i just stock up and buy 4 bags at once.

Really? Surely if you are 22, live in your own place then it's up to you and not them?

I get Oxbow hay shipped to my house, and I also get Oxbow hay from the pet stores when they go on sale. So, I buy both from the pet stores and Oxbow hay shipped to my house. I have never run out of hay in the past for my Finn and Lara.

Most recent shipment of Oxbow hay and some chew toys that came in by mail. It is just over 10kg, at 2.55kg each bag.

Below are big bags of hay store bought for sale when I visited the pet stores. These are long gone. Finn and Lara finished these bags already and currently, they are working on the Oxbow hay shown above.
