Vine House Farm is the largest grower of birdseed in the UK – and at first glance a typical Lincolnshire fen farm, all flat land and big sky. But Vine House Farm is anything but typical. Owned by pioneering farmer Nicholas Watts, it is a living challenge to the idea that farming and wildlife can’t co-exist. Find out more here.
The Wildlife Trusts’ enduring partnership with Vine House Farm Bird Foods has inspired and enabled people to look after the wildlife in their garden for over ten years. Feeding wild bird seed from Vine House Farm Bird Foods, home grown on their wildlife friendly farm in Lincolnshire, has enabled tens of thousands of people to experience the joy of wildlife in their gardens whilst supporting wildlife and wild places close to where they live.
Every purchase raises money for their local Wildlife Trust. In ten years, the partnership has raised over £2m; an unprecedented level of support for a charity from a small family business which enables us to help many more people experience the joy of wildlife.
