Recycle, refill, replenish! These are the new watchwords of the Johnson family.


They're encourage customers to recycle their old containers, refill the birdseed, and replenish the feeders in their garden for birds to enjoy. This saves both money and packaging.

Eyebrook's selection of products can now be purchased by weight, allowing any suitable container to be used.


Customers can simply scoop the seeds they require and enjoy a look around Nana's old tack room. This still holds old tack items, potions and lotions, and relics from 1940s onwards.


The Johnsons have worked on Rectory Farm since 1936, and are passionate about farming, conservation and birdseed.


Over the past thirty years the family has enhanced the environment to encourage more birds and wildlife. They also host farm walks and village events.


They diversified into retailing wild bird seed in 2004, producing nutritious, naturally-balanced seed mixes, using as many home-grown and British seeds as possible. This ensures both an appetising and beneficial feed for garden birds to enjoy all year round.


The farm surrounds the beautiful Eyebrook Reservoir and is a haven for insects, birds and animals.


Eyebrook Wild Bird Feeds can guarantee your seed is mixed on a conservation farm dedicated to improving the environment for birds and wildlife.
