Feeding the birds in your garden is an enchanting and worthwhile pastime. And with many of our most treasured song and garden birds sadly in decline, it is also one of the most effective things you can do to help conserve these wonderful creatures. At Johnston & Jeff, the avian nutritionists, we create what we believe is the finest quality wild bird seed on the market. All our blends are made from ingredients certified fit for human consumption. Each ingredient also goes through Our Unique  Cleaning Process, in order for the birds to get the utmost nutrition from each beak-ful. That’s what makes us ‘The Avian Nutritionists’.
