The grain elevator in our store has a 1903 Edison motor that took seed up to the second floor to be stored out of the way. The chutes that the grain came down to fill bags are still here, though we've long since moved on to a different system for selling seed. In the old days we sold to farmers and people on the Old West Side who kept backyard chickens and geese. Now our customers feed song birds. The box store chains can't touch our prices on 25- and 50-pound bags, nor do they offer the variety we do. If you'd like smaller amounts of bird food, we'll weigh out any amount you want, from a pound on up, on our 1929 Toledo Scale.

  We stock the following types of bird feed:
  • Black Oil Sunflower
  • Thistle
  • Audubon Mix (cracked corn, white millet, sunflower)
  • Blue Diamond Mix (white millet, sunflower, milo, wheat)
  • Sunflower Chips
  • Striped Sunflower
  • Safflower
  • White Millet
  • Peanuts, In & Out of the Shell
  • Cracked Corn
  • Shelled Corn
  • Ear Corn
  • NEW - Chicken Scratch
  • Suet Cakes - 10 Varieties
  • Seed Cakes
