We Operate Packaging Facilities in St. Cloud, MN, Miller, SD, and Midland, SD.
All of our facilities source raw materials from local producers, and clean and package wild bird food products. All facilities are situated on rail and ship and receive materials by rail.
Our primary facility is located in St. Cloud, MN, and we package both bird food and lawn seed here. This 10 acre facility was originally owned by the Burlington Northern railroad, and served as a major rail maintenance facility for many years. This location, along the I-94 corridor, is an ideal location for sourcing both bird food and lawn seed for processing and shipment to customers to the east and south.
Our Miller facility is located in the center of Hand County in South Dakota. Along the 100th meridian, this location is the beginning of the American west. We are able to obtain high quality bird food ingredients – sunflowers, millet and milo – from nearby producers. We clean and package these grains in an automated, robotic packaging operation.
Our Midland facility is located in the southeastern corner of Haakon County in South Dakota. This location is approximately 14 miles north of I-90 and has direct rail access. This allows us to move freight quickly and efficiently. Midland is located in the heart of the growing region for many of the grains used to produce wild bird food. We source these grains -sunflowers, millet, milo, and safflower – from nearby producers. Our robotic operation cleans and packages these grains into our wild bird food products.
