Now that winter has our two counties in its grip, our garden wildlife needs a little help from its friends – that’s us.
Clean unfrozen water and a regular supply of birdseed, suet products and mealworms can provide a lifeline.
Long nights and cold days mean there is not much food about, particularly for our little garden birds, so give them a helping hand - and support the work of the Trust – by purchasing birdseed from Vine House Farm Bird Foods.
The Wildlife Trusts and Vine House Farm Bird Foods are celebrating a flourishing 10-year partnership, working together for wildlife.
By donating up to 5% of its sales to The Wildlife Trusts, Vine House Farm has raised over £1.25m – including £22,323 to the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust.
Vine House Farm helps our work with wildlife and wild places by its contributions from all bird food sales made in Leicestershire and Rutland.
Trust Director Simon Bentley said, “Our partnership means a valuable double benefit: great service to our members and funds to support our work.”
Vine House Farm, the home of pioneering wildlife-friendly farmer Nicolas Watts MBE and his family, is one of the UK’s most successful wild bird food businesses and is host to a wide range of wildlife. It grows 400 acres of bird seed including 100 acres of sunflowers and 240 acres of red millet, white millet, naked oats, oil seed rape and canary seed, that are delivered directly to customers across UK.
