I have used it in the past. This year was a good hay year here in the East so I assume they have good hay. I got some local hay as the KM Bluegrass was not good at all. The local Timothy was excellent and my pigs love it. Not so my allergies !Im glad its not just my area. I bought some kaytee hay too, just to get by with. Does anyone use sweetmeadow hay?

I purchased two of the largest boxes of 3rd cut timothy from Sweet Meadow just about a month ago. It is really good quality, I was quite surprised. I had been using KM but wanted to try Sweetmeadow due to it being about half the price for me. I have to say the Sweetmeadow I received is just as green and soft as my previous order of KM. The piggies love it.
Interesting! I will have to look around a bit for some Sweet Meadow, as I've never seen it at the few places I get my Oxbow. It's probably there, I've just looked over it!
Do you know the price comparison of Oxbow vs. Sweet Meadow?
Right now I pay around $9.00 for 1.13KG of Oxbow (Timothy)...
I'm sorry to say I'm not familiar with prices of Oxbow at all. There isn't any stores around me that carry any of the high quality hay or pellets so I knew from the beginning I'd be doing my ordering online. I do know though, from doing the math and other posts on the subject, that its generally cheaper overall to order pellets and hay in bulk no matter the brand. Unless you can get a local bale of hay, I've looked, no luck.
I know with Kleenmamas I paid around $150.00 for a 25lb bag of pellets and 45lb box of 3rd cut timothy hay. When I ordered from Sweetmeadow I paid about the same but ordered a 50lb bag of pellets and two of the largest boxes of hay (29-36lb-I think its listed like that based on shipping, it talks about it on the site, but I really don't notice a difference between the size of Sweetmeadow or KM, not a big difference). So I basically got twice the amount from Sweetmeadow for the same price. I know KM is ranked at a higher quality from posts on this sight but I really am happy with Sweetmeadow, especially the hay and the amount I'm saving.
I know I've read here that Sweetmeadow can be bought in stores but I couldn't tell you where. You can get an idea of what it would cost you and look at their products here.
