HOW THE SEED SALE WORKS:
For a few weeks each year, the Augusta Bird Club takes orders for premium bird seed, as well as some squirrel-proof feeders we have found in our personal experience to be outstanding. The seed is delivered to us by truck, and customers pick up the seed on a given day. Funds from the seed sale are used to promote education and conservation — in particular, scholarships for young people to attend Nature Camp in Vesuvius, Virginia and support for conservation projects in the region.
Amish Farm to your backyard feeder: Our seed comes from Lizzie Mae, where the highest quality wild bird food is mixed and packaged by an Amish crew on a 10-acre farm in Holmes County Ohio. As in past years, we offer our specially blended seed mix, the nyjer that finches love so much, waste-free peanuts and sunflower chips, and the premium black oil sunflower seeds that attract so many species to your yard. Our top quality suet cakes come from Pine Tree Farms — your birds will be able to tell the difference from cheaper brands with more filler.
Keep squirrels from emptying your feeder: Our Squirrel Buster™ feeders from Brome have been tested by Augusta Bird Club members, and we can testify that not only do they actually work, preventing squirrels from getting at the seed, but they are also exceptionally well made and durable. We are able to offer prices lower than any others we have found in stores or online.
The Augusta Bird Club is a non-profit organization committed to education, conservation, and advancing knowledge of birds, particularly those found in Augusta County, Virginia. Our annual bird seed sale is our major fundraiser. Orders must be placed in advance, with pickup only on the designated day. Delivery within Augusta County, or within 25 miles of the pick-up site, can be arranged for a nominal fee.
