This year we will be featuring a lot of new products on our stand, from the new types of wood briquettes that are proving incredibly popular with our customers to a whole new range of animal and bird feeds. High quality hen and pigeon feed, wild bird food and great value, quality dog food are all now in our range.
This is what we say on our website about choosing food for wild birds: "Cheap mixed wild bird seed (£10 to £15 for 20kg!) is formulated from low cost ingredients like wheat and kibbled maize. This is fine for pigeon, jackdaws, rats, squirrels, hens and crows, but it is a pointless waste of money if you want to attract a wide range of more interesting small garden songbirds.
Even our basic mixed seed contains over 30% black sunflower seed and our premium seed mixes meet the Birdcare Standards Association Higher Voluntary Level requirements and do not contain cheap fillers such as wheat and biscuit. They are formulated to RSPB standards and are designed to attract a wide variety of songbirds to your garden.
For the sake of our beautiful range of garden songbirds please spend a few pence per kilo more and buy something that they like and that is good for them. If, as some people complain, the birds eat it too fast (clearly rubbish food is going to last longer because they don't like it) then simply limit the amount you put out on a daily basis to fit within your budget. That way it doesn't cost you any more than feeding cheap food, but the birds get far more benefit form the higher protein levels."
So do come and see us at the show - just look for the woodfuel sign shown in the top picture!
