A number of years ago I purchased a squirrel buster bird feeder. I brought in a couple broken parts and they replaced them for free! Extremely nice, very helpful employees. This store is a little pricey but worth it. A fun place to visit. My birds send me there for food. Lol

Great place to find waste-free seed for your feeders. Stop going to big box stores for substandard seed and go to this local store for the good stuff.

Incredibly helpful getting us set up with the items we needed to make cat TV and helped us with feed types to attract specific creatures to entertain our cats 😂
