Growing Fresh Orchard Grass

Orchard grass for rabbits......easy to grow! A small 4'x8' plot, filled with good compost, and $1 in seed from your local seed store. We harvest grass once or twice a week for the summer and it has worked out great as a treat for the 3 rabbits we have.

Cut one eight foot section into two pieces and lie all of the boards in a place of your yard that gets a decent amount of sun and shade. Fill the box with compost, sprinkle seed down, rake the seed in gently, water, and wait. Continue to water occasionally until the grass starts to grow.

If your rabbit doesn't eat a lot of hay, this might be a great alternative to wear down teeth.
