Some of us may be thinking of making a New Year Resolution to go on a diet while others may be ‘comfort eating’ to ward off the cold weather. But for our wildlife there is little choice, the winter months long nights and cold days mean there is simply not much food about. This is particularly true for our little garden birds, so they need a helping hand from us.
Clean unfrozen water and a regular supply of birdseed, suet products and mealworms can literally provide a lifeline.
When you buy your bird food and other supplies from Vine House Farm you help your garden wildlife and also help the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust to protect wildlife and wild places in our two counties.
In the last financial year Vine House Farm raised nearly £3,000 for the Trust. There is a discount of 10% off your very first order and 4% of all online sales to members and supporters in our two counties will be donated to the Trust.
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.
You can replenish your stocks of bird food etc by ordering on-line at www.vinehousefarm.co.uk/ or members can look out for the latest Vine House Farm flier enclosed with the new edition of the Trust magazine Wildlife News.
