Our Story

Who are we?
We are brothers, Oly & CJ, and together with our mum, Pam, we run our fourth-generation family farm in rural East Yorkshire.

The story so far…
Our farm is very traditional, growing a variety of crops including the seed in this blend. We also have a beef suckler herd and a campsite. For a number of years we have grown all of these seeds which have always been blended with other grains that do not grow in this country. We kept asking ourselves the question, “Why do we feed our wild British birds seed which isn’t grown in the UK?”

This is how the idea for The Yorkshire Wild Bird Food Company was born.

We are producing a bird feed that is made using only crops grown here in Yorkshire, enjoyed by our very own British birds. This allows us to significantly reduce food miles and in turn helps to protect our shared environment.

Who is it for?
Our premium wheat-free blend can be fed to all native birds which are found in the gardens of Yorkshire and the British Isles. It is blended for use all year round and can be placed in feeders, on bird tables and on the ground.
