What our customers think about Petting Pellets


Small Breeds Farm Park

“We’ve been using Petting Pellets for years on our Farm Park for the public to feed our animals with. We wouldn’t use anything else as you can feed it to any animal and ours love eating it. Highly recommended!”

Mini Meadows Farm

“Changing from our traditional grass nut to Sundown petting pellets has been great. A reduction in waste in our animal pens whilst still being able to maintain a well balanced healthy diet. We will definitely be using these for the foreseeable future.”

Standalone Farm

“Petting Pellets work well for us as the animals seem to like them and there is little risk from over feeding.”
