Excellent product, excellent service.

We have been using feeder seed from Haith's for a number of years with complete satisfaction. It is clean, flows freely in the feeder tube, and the birds seem to love the mix, as they are always on the feeder. The delivery service is fast and reliable. We are happy to recommend Haith's to anyone.

Thank you, Ross for taking time to share your experience - it's good to read that you and your birds are happy.

The Key Ingredients of Our Feeder Seed Mix

Our Feeder Seed boasts a trio of key ingredients, each selected for their high nutritional value and appeal to garden birds:

Safflower: Offers a beneficial alternative to more common seeds, with a hard shell that's particularly favoured by larger birds.

Sunflower Hearts: The kernel of the black sunflower seed, rich in oil and energy, beloved by virtually all bird species for its ease of consumption.

Whole Hempseed: Packed with essential fatty acids and proteins, it's a super energy source.

Black Sunflower: Known for its high oil content, it provides the necessary calories to keep birds energised.

The inclusion of high energy hemp and safflower seeds alongside sunflower hearts ensures that whether you're looking to attract finches, sparrows, or tits, our feeder seed has you covered.
