Sustainable Wild Bird Products

The Sun Country Farms sustainability story

In 2007, founders, Kent Rathwell and his wife Joni purchased Sun Country Farms and developed it into the world’s most economically, environmentally and socially sustainable wild bird birdseed company.

The wind-powered facility in Langham, Saskatchewan, was the first in the province to use 100% green electricity. Additionally, the processing plant produces enough bio-oil to power the farm equipment used to produce and transport all of Sun Country Farm’s seed products.

Along with Sun Country Farms’ sustainable bird food, the team launched a line of high-quality bird feeders made from recycled plastic milk jugs, which to date has diverted approximately 1 million jugs from landfills.

By installing electric vehicle charging stations at participating retailers, Sun Country Farms has produced one of the first potential zero emission value chains in the world. Bird food can be farmed, cleaned, processed, bagged and distributed to the retailer and arrive in the consumers backyard with virtually zero emissions. The greenest bird food plant in the world is providing proof to the world that "the impossible is possible.”
