At VOLKMAN, health and safety is number one. Their mixes contain over 50 essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids bonded to pre-hulled seeds. Fruits and vegetables are human grade and seeds are germination tested for freshness. They use no dog food, cat food, meat, poultry or fish by-products, animal fats, chemical preservatives or artificial food colors.
Seeds are tested in an independent lab for the possible presence of E. coli and Streptococcus, then super cleaned, CO2flushed, and packed in air-barrier bags to seal in freshness. It's easy to see that VOLKMAN shares our appreciation of our wondrous winged children.
Their devotion to enhancing the lives of our feathery friends through clean, quality feeds is to be applauded. Thank you, VOLKMAN, for your care and concern and thank you for your generous donations.
VOLKMAN has been manufacturing blended feeds for birds since 1863, making them one of the oldest continuous makers of diets for companion pets in the United States. Their mixes have the reputation of being some of the cleanest in the world.
VOLKMAN is a progressive company. They believe that birds, like people, need a balanced diet and were among the first to introduce vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains, and spices to their seed formulas.
They use re-sealable zip-lock poly bags for added convenience and use multi-layer lined bulk bags for added freshness. They were also the first bird company to introduce nitrogen-flushed bags for extended shelf-life. VOLKMAN is one of the largest suppliers in the country of cuttlebone (an excellent source of calcium and trace minerals) and recently started growing and marketing their own organically grown golden California spray millet.
