About Us
The family farm was taken on in 1927 by our grandfather, Frank Parrish. The farm originally incorporated a dairy and milk was delivered to the surrounding areas each day. Grahame Parrish, second generation, took over the farm in 1958 and the farm focused more on growing vegetables.

The sandy soils of the green sand ridge have been ideal for vegetable production and in particular many brussel sprouts used to be grown on this farm and surrounding Bedfordshire countryside in the 1970’s. These day’s we grow potatoes, onions, shallots and cereals, but as well the land is ideal for growing bird feed such as sunflower seeds, maize, red millet, white millet, oats, linseed and wheat.

So after sometime in food manufacturing, 3rd generation, Nick and James Parrish had the vision of growing and producing highly nutritious, sustainable and British grown wild bird feed.

Our manufacturing and agricultural background serves us well in starting the business. We are developing a whole range of products in conjunction with our expert ornithologist Mike Smith.
