Not all grass is the same. At Burgess, we believe in producing grass with the highest possible nutritional value, grown in a way that supports British farmers and gives the environment a helping hand

When you look at our Excel products for rabbits and guinea pigs, you’ll find that grass is listed as the first ingredient. This is because, in the wild, grass is what these small animals would eat. As pets, it remains the most important element of their diet. However, not all grass is the same.
The grass used in our Excel nuggets is sourced from the UK to meet our stringent specifications and is exclusive to Burgess. No other pet food manufacturer has access to our grass and we are justifiably proud of its provenance.
At Burgess, we have a long tradition of supporting British farmers. As part of our ongoing commitment, we actively source our ingredients as close to our mill as possible. Our grass comes from the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside from an estate that can be traced back to the Domesday Book. Although just over an hour’s drive from our mill, it’s actually one of our more distant suppliers.
For us, it’s all about the detail. The attention we apply to our grass is something that we replicate across all our ingredients. With Burgess, you know you can feed your pets with complete confidence.
