Grow your own rabbit food! Great website for all sorts of pasture grasses. This particular mix "herbal pasture mix" is a perfect mix for bunnies, containing timothy, orchard grass, alfalfa, multiple types fo clover, and lots of other rabbit favorites. At $6/lb, you can grow enough food to last your bunny forever. I plan on planting this in the entire area where the rabbit hutch, and run will be located, as well as planting specific herbs (cilantro, basil, etc.) in pots to rotate in with her.

"Rabbit Food Pyramid" - I don't agree with the vegetable part. While rabbits should have unlimited grass hay, they should have a main diet of quality pellets; vegetables and fruits are supplements (albeit important ones). Treats don't really belong on this pyramid; fruits and veggies are treats enough for rabbits. Store-bought treats, especially, are not healthy for rabbits.
