Buy a Bale of Hay

Donkey Hay From Stoke Fruit Farm

There are so many ways for people to be involved in helping us care for the donkeys at the sanctuary, visiting us on open days, volunteering, fundraising etc. One very tangible simple way is by buying them bales of hay. The donkeys are trickle feeders and are hardwired to look for food all day long, they have a particularly strong stomach acid along with it being being only half lined, this means they need to have a constant throughput of forage material to prevent ulcers and of course keep them healthy. They need high fibre foods and happily chew on tree bark, prickly plants and bushes but to supplement that we feed them straw and hay.

We have an arrangement with our local Stoke Fruit Farm who have a donkey hay button on their drive through shop till, as they are unable to take payments over the phone so please DO NOT phone them. Instead please purchase the bales of hay right here by clicking on the button below. The bales are then sent to the donkeys which is a bit easier (and cleaner) than squeezing them in your car!
