Buns love willow - especially ours!

By ours, we mean our buns and our willow.  

Yes, we're delighted to have a good crop in our meadow and have been cutting it at every opportunity for the last few weeks, carefully selecting the best for our rabbits.  We have a good crop and are offering some for sale so other buns can enjoy it too.

Unlike the willow sold in many pet stores, our Wrenwood Willow is sold without any fancy packaging and brand-name labels.  Nor has it have been transported twice across the world or seen the inside of a processing plant in China.  Instead, our willow has been grown on an exclusive, privately-owned meadow in a secluded, almost traffic-free Welsh valley set deep within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounded by a Nature Reserve and woodlands.  Our Wrenwood Willow is grown in an unpolluted environment and is free of all pesticides and herbicides.  It has been cut by hand, watched by our resident robin, beside a backdrop of tumbling waterfalls and a trickling stream.  After cutting it has been left to dry and then packed for mailing to your bunny by courier.

Willow is a healthy, tasty treat for rabbits and other small furry animals.  Gnawing on willow helps keep teeth clean and in good condition and chewing on our mini-logs provides activity, stimulation and helps alleviate boredom. Our rabbits love the sap from freshly-picked green willow and also enjoy tucking into crispy dried willow.  

As a natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic, willow has some medicinal benefits too and rabbits slipping into stasis or suffering mild pain are often instinctively drawn towards willow.

Wrenwood Willow is sold in Selection Bags which will include a selected mix of fresh green willow mini-logs*, green chew sticks, green twiglets, dried sticks and dried twiglets.  Because willow is a wholly natural product, each bag will contain a different selection.  Because our Wrenwood Willow is straight from the field (not a factory in China processing willow of unknown origin) it may contain traces of a little moss, some natural knots and maybe a few buds.  If you pop a few sticks vertically in your garden, you might even find it takes root and you can start to grow your own supply!
