In operation since 1825, Henry bell is a fourth generation, family owned, british buisiness that takes pride in it’s dedication and work toward providing the best quality of feed possible for the wild bird population. In the early 1980’s they moved onto creating flakes and pulses for the pet and animal feed industry- becoming one of the leading suppliers. In the late 90’s, they expanded again moving onto create bespoke wild bird feed and packaging for a varied range of customers. And now? they have their feet well and truly in the door with the “Brand market” domain and we here at Monkton Elm are very excited to be able to offer you, our customer, a wide range of their products.
Peanuts have long been a traditional feed used for the wild bird population and we can see why! Effectively a powerhouse of energy, peanuts are very nutrient rich and as such, loved by a wide range of wild birds. Henry Bell choose only the highest quality of peanut for use in their bird feed and all of which are tested for Aflatoxins. Meaning you can rest assured, your birds are being well taken care of.

DOING YOUR PART FOR YOUR BIRDS-
Due to an ever decreasing source of natural food supplies, it is becoming ever more critical for us to feed our wild bird population. But not only this, we must ensure that we offer enough water for both drinking and bathing, for the birds to keep on top of their hygiene. Again, due to the ever decreasing size of natural spots where our birds could naturally take care of these issues. It is also essential that we regulary change over the feeds within our feeders as they can become damp and encourage the spread of diseases amongst the wild bird population.
