Product Description

If your rabbit is a great hay eater then we recommend using the other concentrated adult formula that allows you to feed less pellets.

Grain & Soy-Free, and formulated with premium Timothy Hay, whole natural oil seeds (with flax seed), and chelated minerals to promote digestive health and a shiny fur coat! This is formerly known as Maintenance and Support.

Sherwood’s unique formula uses alfalfa (instead of the commonly used soybean meal) because it is a more natural, healthier and balanced source of protein that rabbits are adapted to. It is blended with premium grass hay and fortified with additional nutrients. Veterinarians agree that this diet is superior to the grain/soy based diets on the market today.

By the time bunnies reach about 11 to 12 weeks of age they are "teenagers" and need to switch to a diet that is lower in energy and fortified with specific nutrients. This helps them mature without getting fat. In fact it will help them stay trim and active and you'll know that they are healthy on the inside because you'll see the difference in the quality of their fur coat on the outside!
Your bunny will live a healthier and ‘hoppier’ life.

  1. The Best

    Posted by gwen kaiser on 6th Oct 2015

    Dark green color in comparison to any other food, even Oxbow.

    Rabbits eat less of it than other foods, because it is more filling. There are no fillers in this food, it is pure goodness.

    Highly recommend.

  2. Love Sherwood Forest!!!

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Oct 2015

    Our Mini Rex loves Sherwood Forest. When we first got her, she was on some kind of food that must have had some kind of sugar, because she would eat that one first. We transitioned her within a week and never looked back. Rex's have a beautiful coat to begin with, but after 4 months, we notice her coat is indescribably luxurious. The Sherwoods are extremely knowledgeable in buns and bun nutrition. I would consult with them before my vet!

  3. Top Hat!

    Posted by Charles on 28th Sep 2015

    The absolute best availble! Great stuff. Thank you Davd Sherwood, so say the two buns Suzanna and Chispa that our son has.

  4. The best food out there

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Sep 2015

    I love this food because my bunnies love this food..They are healthier then they ever have been..Thank you Sherwood Forest.

  5. Terrific!

    Posted by Kelly on 23rd Sep 2015

    Great product! Since I've been feeding these pellets to my bunny he has not had any digestive issues. The pellets smell fresh not having that odor that the regular store bought brands have. Great buy!

  6. Excellent for my Bunnies.

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Sep 2015

    My bunnies love this healthy pellets. I just ordered more.

  7. Top-notch rabbit feed!

    Posted by Scott Dickson on 20th Sep 2015

    My daughters rabbits have been dining on this product since we brought them home three years ago. They love the stuff and have shiny, satiny coats to prove it!!!

  8. Slowly but surely.....

    Posted by Charlotte and Jax on 17th Sep 2015

    I've been transitioning my buns from Oxbow Young Rabbit to the Sherwood Adult. At first they weren't interested in Sherwood, and only picked out the Oxbow. However now they are eating both (albeit, the Oxbow is still gone first). So if your bun doesn't eat it at first, keep offering it - I bet they will warm up to it. Sherwood will be their only option in a few weeks once the Oxbow runs out, and I don't anticipate any problems. I'm happy to find such a healthy alternative. Thanks!

  9. Heathy Stuff!!!

    Posted by Judy on 16th Sep 2015

    This is the best bunny food out there NO sugar. That is so important. My bunny looks great and she super happy. Thanks Sherwood for creating a perfect food!

  10. World's Pickiest Goddess

    Posted by Indrani on 10th Sep 2015

    I was named for a beautiful Hindu goddess & shall remain a goddess forever. I went on a hay rebellion, so at Bob recommendation, Mama transitioned me from the Adult Supplement to the Regular Adult pellets. I felt insufficiently worshipped & stopped eating altogether. One expensive vet trip later, a weekend of Critical Care, & I finally decided these new pellets were ok after all. Now I scarf down bowlfuls & am slowly regaining the weight I lost on my hunger strike.

  11. 2 year old bunny

    Posted by amanda on 9th Sep 2015

    Our almost 2 year old bunny has been eating this product since he was born. His coat is super soft and his last checkup said he was the healthiest bunny. Thank you for making such a quality product!

  12. Bunny Love

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Sep 2015

    It's hard not to love this bunny food when there are four wiggly noses awaiting its delivery!

  13. Wonderful

    Posted by Tasha on 4th Sep 2015

    I emailed the company only wanting a sample and they offered me a free 4.5 lb bag and all I had to pay for was shipping. I was currently using oxbow for adults. I have been slowing trying to get our bun to switch to the Sherwood, but he tends to eat all the oxbow first and then if not refilled will eat the Sherwood. Although we are not fully on the Sherwood our Buns coat seems to be so shinny and soft. His little poops have been perfectly round and have no had any gi issues at all since adding Sherwood to his diet. We are not completely hooked on it yet but we will keep trying and I will definitely order again. Also the pellets are so green it puts oxbow to shame. I love this product and hope to get our bun on it fully. And this may have nothing to do with the new pellets but our 2 year old bun that we've had since he was 8 weeks can now jump onto our bed that is about 30 in high!

  14. great pellet

    Posted by Tara on 3rd Sep 2015

    Had to transition my bunnies slowly but they are now eating these pellets very well. My bunnies are older and this pellet seems to help their digestion.

  15. Super fast Delivery

    Posted by Fiona on 27th Aug 2015

    My buns love this food and I love that it's extremely healthy for them. I ordered more food the other day and it's already here. I'm glad it was so fast getting to my home because my buns only have about a weeks worth of food left and I thought I might have to get some of the not so great food from the store to get by before my new order arrived. I'm glad it never came to that.

  16. Love this food as much as my buns!

    Posted by Stephanie on 26th Aug 2015

    Great product, always fresh, always arrives fast and no order issues ever! I've had issues with other companies sending older food and not processing our order, what a bummer.

    Sherwood Forest is truly the best! Fresh, healthy, smells incredible and arrives on time! Yeah!

  17. A really good purchase

    Posted by Cheyenne on 18th Aug 2015

    I ended up buying the 10 pound bulk box on impulse because my bunnies needed more food. I had done a bunch of research on rabbit nutrition trying to make sure that they were getting everything they needed from their food. This food hit everything on my nutrition check list.

    The food came in the mail a week after it was made which really impressed me. It smelled(still does) fantastic. My whole room smelled great. Another thing I was really happy about was the lack of ground pellets at the bottom of the bag that commercial foods have a lot of. It was 99.9% solid pellet.

    One of my rabbits loves this food so much, she eats like a mad man when I put it in her bowl. My other doe eats this food like she did the junk and fillers out of the commercial brand I used to get(she was a bit of a selective eater).

    All of their coats look so much healthier and shinier. My Harlequin's coat even looks brighter in color. Their poop also has also gotten darker since I started feeding them this food.

    Overall I'm 100% happy with this food and once my rabbits work through their stash of it I will be ordering more.

  18. The best food

    Posted by Chris on 7th Aug 2015

    I love the color and fresh smell of the food. Our rabbits love it. I feel very good feeding to thrm

  19. Wonderful pellets for your lovable bun bun!

    Posted by Kim Lan on 5th Aug 2015

    I love how the pellets are green and natural not like the ones you get at the store! I will definitely keep on purchasing the Sherwood brand pellets for my bun buns for the rest of their life. My bun buns loves it and yours will too!

  20. The best rabbit food out there!

    Posted by Natacha on 3rd Aug 2015

    I truly believe that this is the best pellets on the market! They are so fresh and natural. Unfortunately, this is the second time I am trying it out with my rabbits, and they got gas problems the two times I have tried to switch them over from oxbow. I did the transition very gradually and after 3 weeks of gradual transition, two got stomach ache. I was so sad because I really wanted to make it work as I know that this is so much higher in quality than oxbow!:( i do not know if it is the alfalfa that makes them sensitive because it is too rich... But I a don't know what to do.... So I will have to stop buying it for mine but will still strongly recommend it!!!

  21. Amazing

    Posted by Christina on 31st Jul 2015

    This food is amazing, our bun is very picky and will only eat this food!

  22. the best

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Jul 2015

    Amazing Product!My rabbits are so healthy and happy so glad that i found your product

  23. Bunny Heaven

    Posted by Kathy on 19th Jul 2015

    My bunnies love the food..I have one bunny that produces extra cecotropes..Since I switched to Sherwood Forest she has stopped..unless I give her something that triggers it again.Thank you for keeping my bunnies healthy.

  24. Warning! Extra binkying will happen!

    Posted by Ava on 16th Jul 2015

    I have spoken to David a few times via email, as I had some concerns due to a bad experience with a big name brand. I now advocate for local pet and farm stores to carry Sherwood Natural Rabbit Food.

    When I opened our first bag next to my precious Mini Lop bunny, who is typically very picky, she stuck her puffy cheeks right into the bag and started munching! The fresh "green tea" scent hits you right away.

    I noticed 3 things after a week:
    1) Ava can now jump clear over our gate!!! I was shocked and so was she. Her extra energy is clear.
    2) Her coat has stabilized and has more shine... after only a week.
    3) She has actually put on a little more healthy weight. I have to strictly regulate the food because she will choose these amazing pellets over her hay!

    Thank you for your amazing product and family run company, I will advocate for your success as long as I have a voice.

  25. Grain free

    Posted by Jan on 16th Jul 2015

    This is a good pellet for bunnies prone to poopy butt. I had a couple of bunnies that could not tolerate pellets at all but do fine on these.

  26. Keep your kits healthy

    Posted by Wendy on 15th Jul 2015

    I've been feeding my moms and kits Sherwood baby formula since I started my rabbitry. I've never had a kit with enteritis. My kits are happy and healthy. I love that this food gives them a great start in life.


    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jul 2015

    My bunnies love it an the best.

  28. Best quality food out there

    Posted by Amber on 10th Jul 2015

    Very impressed with the ingredients of this product, and my rabbit loves it! He's an older bun with one or two less teeth in the back, and he gets about a cup every four days, eats about 1/4 cup per day on his own. It really improved the quality of his poops! I was happy to see that. Knowing this means his GI tract must be much healthier since switching. Thank you Sherwood Forest for doing all the research, and selecting the best ingredients for this food, to keep my bunny happy!

  29. me and my babies love this product! ❤️

    Posted by Amanda, Lily and Ollie on 9th Jul 2015

    me and my babies love this food! I love that it's soy free and hay based with lots of nutrients to make them hoppy and healthy with shiney coats! and they just can't get enough of it! Sherwood Forest is really the best rabbit food on the market!

  30. Nice and fresh

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Jul 2015

    I was very impressed when I opened the bag. Nice green color and very fresh smelling. It's only been a few weeks and I am still trying to get my bunny to eat it... He's picky picky. Slowly slowly he will eventually eat it. lol

  31. Best Pellets Ever!

    Posted by Cynthia on 7th Jul 2015

    My buns & I love Sherwood, I have been able to convince others to try Sherwood simply by letting them smell the pellets. Everyone says they smell delightfully green & fresh!

  32. So Happy !

    Posted by Buni on 4th Jul 2015

    Until now I thought Oxbow was the best one could buy. Since I stumbled across your site I immediately kissed Oxbow good-bye. I am very impressed with the dark green color and super fresh smelling pellets. Your speedy shipping service to Maui is excellent. My bunnies seem to really like Sherwood pellets and I think their coats look much nicer now. Bunnies also seem to be more happy and relaxed since eating this new food. Makes me happy to know my bunnies are now eating quality food.

  33. My rabbit will live thanks to this food

    Posted by Robin Grunwald on 4th Jul 2015

    My rabbit was very ill from commercial rabbit food. The doctor tried to help him, but he could not recover his health. I found Sherwood Forest food and tried a sample. My rabbit immediately showed improvement. He is fully recovered and very healthy. I love my rabbit very much- best pet I have ever had- I am eternally grateful to the producers of this quality product. You can smell the freshness- you can see the difference in the color- it is food fit for the ones you love.

  34. Tullulah Most Favorite Food Ever

    Posted by Shelley hart on 4th Jul 2015

    I have my angora Miss Tullulah and when we tried this wonderful food we ran out so I had to mix it with the store brand. Well she knew the difference and picked every pellet out of the good stuff and left the store brand. Her coat is fabulous no wool block and the customer service was great answering all of my questions since this is my first angora bunny.

  35. Angora Rabbits need more

    Posted by S. Martin on 3rd Jul 2015

    I am pleased the feed does not have corn, soy, or wheat, it smells fresh, and is shipped quickly. For all the positive reviews, I was hopeful this feed would be a solution for us. However, I talked with our breeder, and she does not believe this feed is adequate on it's own and must be supplemented. According to this breeder, who has been breeding and showing angora rabbits for decades so I trust her judgment, because angora rabbits are continually growing their coat, they need more protein in their diet. When I took our French angora male to her for an evaluation, she was concerned he was too thin by about 2 pounds because she could feel his spine and hip bones. He has been on this feed for 2+ years and has it free choice with no supplementation, lives in our home, and does not have parasites. We were in the process of adopting a young French angora rescue who was not fed properly since birth, taken in by this same breeder who has been trying to transition her over to the Sherwood brand from her show rabbit blend the last several weeks before she released the bunny to us to make sure she would continue to thrive and gain. The bunny will not touch this food over her show ration and tosses it out of the bowl onto the floor. This breeder is convinced this feed is not adequate on it's own to grow and maintain an angora and is concerned with our own rabbits condition. With all that said, I'm sure this is a fine product for smaller rabbits who do not need extra protein to maintain their body condition and a growing coat, but from our personal experience with our angora rabbit, and the one we attempted to adopt, this feed will most certainly need to be supplemented with additional products, which we will attempt to do with our bunny to put some weight back on him.

  36. Great Pellet!

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Jul 2015

    My picky eater loves this pellet! I could not find a single place where I live that the pellet isn't made of soy and corn. The price of the pellet made it worth it to get 10lbs even though my bunny had never tried it, I decided to give it a try. The results are that she absolutely loves it! Every time I take the pellet out she gets really excited and runs to her bowl. I hope this brand starts selling hay soon!

  37. My rabbits love this stuff!!!

    Posted by Cydni Terry on 1st Jul 2015

    My rabbits love this food, and their coat feels amazing! They are very healthy happy bunny rabbits! The food smells very fresh and you can tell you are giving them high quality food!

  38. Trixie loves this!

    Posted by Debbie on 29th Jun 2015

    My rabbit loves this food, I would not consider feeding her anything else.

  39. A great product!

    Posted by Tim on 24th Jun 2015

    I have had my Flemish Giant Rabbit Snowflake for 3 years now. I have tried many different pellet foods with him and it has been hit or miss for the most part.

    When I did some research I found Sherwood's website.

    On a whim I ordered the 19 pound box back in December and the rabbit ate it. After that I had bought some other brand and Snowflake suffered from bad cases of diarrhea. We still had a large quantity of the food left , but I made a decision to order The pellets from Sherwood again.

    After getting the pellets from Sherwood and giving snowflake a mix of the pellets and a tablespoon of oats Snowflakes issues went away.

    I will never order anything but Sherwood Adult Rabbit pellets for Snowflake ever again. This has been a lesson learned and If Snowflake could talk he would probably agree.

    Thank you for all the work and keep up the quality of services Sherwood!

  40. gave our rescue bunny a whole new shine to her coat!

    Posted by mike on 19th Jun 2015

    we've been using this food for our bunny, ryder, for the past 6-months. he loves it, and will deliberately start chewing on things he shouldn't (to get our attention) if he feels like we're late with his breakfast!

    two months ago we adopted another bunny, aria, to start bonding with ryder. she's a much bigger bunny, and very cute. we noticed that her fur wasn't as soft as ryder's, and we just figured it was her breed.

    after a few weeks with these pellets her fur is just as shiny and soft as ryder's! we watched the transformation take place, and she absolutely loves it.

    we give them the sherwood food in the morning, unlimited hay during the day, and some greens at night. they're happy, healthy, and have a grand ol' bunny time.

    thank you for such a great product!

  41. natural and no alfalfa

    Posted by Kym Fraher on 18th Jun 2015

    It's so hard to find rabbit food that doesn't have alfalfa in it, which makes my rabbit's pee all cloudy and weird. I had to turn to the internet and found Sherwood forest rabbit food. Came so quickly and was exactly what I was looking for. The rabbits love it and I know it's good for them.

  42. very good

    Posted by rasila queen on 18th Jun 2015

    I loved the color and smell and my rabbits seem to love it too.

  43. My Senior Rabbit Thrives on Sherwood!

    Posted by Stacey on 15th Jun 2015

    I wrote review number 44 almost a year ago. I still am thrilled with the Adult Rabbit Food. My 10 1/2 year old Della still loves it. She's got missing molars and doesn't each much hay. The Adult Rabbit Food formula supplies the fiber she needs. I credit Sherwood with keeping her so healthy.

  44. Healthy weight and no more sinus issues

    Posted by Michelle on 15th Jun 2015

    My chubby granny has come down to a healthy weight. My bunnies who had sinus issues (milky eyes and wheezing) no longer have those issues. So grateful-- thank you.

  45. Sweeet

    Posted by Roxy on 9th Jun 2015

    Nippoleon, my dwarf bunny, loves this super fresh pelleted food. He's a thriving, soft, energetic, and fiesty three year old.

  46. My rabbits love it.

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Jun 2015

    It always arrives quickly, always looks the same, and my rabbits love it!

  47. Rabbit Loves It!

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Jun 2015

    Our bunny loves these pellets! His coat looks wonderful and feel plush. Great product!

  48. BEST bunny food EVER!

    Posted by Celina Gonzalez on 4th Jun 2015

    I've kept rabbits for the past 5 years and usually fed foods from feed stores or pet stores. Since there wasn't much variety I just supplemented with timothy hay and fresh fruits or veggies. Upon seeing Sherwood Forest on the drs website and researching about it I figured it was worth a try. Firstly, I immediately noticed a HUGE difference in the quality of pellet. Secondly, Bunny Holly noticed it immediately after she smelled it. I have never seen that bunny enjoy her pellets as much. Now whenever she runs out she bangs her Lastly, I noticed a BIG decrease in the potty smell department. Rabbits are notorious for pungent urine but people can't even tell I have a rabbit. Thank you guys for such a great quality product! Bunny Holly thanks you all with a Binky!

  49. The Best

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Jun 2015

    Our rabbits are healthy and have beautiful coats. Nothing on the market can compare to the quality of Sherwood Forest.

  50. One reservation

    Posted by Unknown on 31st May 2015

    This is very fresh, good quality food and I'll continue to buy it. My only reservation is that it's primarily alfalfa and we all know, or should know, that adult rabbits need more Timothy than alfalfa. My vet said I shouldn't be feeding this. Someone in the reviews said they feed their rabbits free choice. You can't do that and have healthy rabbits! I was giving Kix all the pellets she wanted and she became overweight and wasn't eating hay, thus causing problems with her back teeth. Now she only gets 1/8 of a cup a day and is eating more of her hay.

    ** Biologist note: Small herbivores, including rabbits should always have access to loose grass hay. After speaking with some top veterinarians at the House Rabbit Society Educators Conference (September 2014) they agree that for adult rabbits an alfalfa and grass hay mixed diet is more natural and superior to the soybean/grain based diets typical on the market today.
