Description

Our Ground Mix is the ideal food for ground feeding birds such as Robin and Blackbird, and is packed with sultanas, rolled oats, sunflower hearts, berry suet pellets, chopped peanuts, naked oats, pinhead oats and kibbled maize. This mix can be fed from a bird table, ground tray or directly on the ground.

Most ground feeding songbirds are also known as softbill species, with a trait all these birds share being that they can’t remove the husks from seeds. Therefore our Ground Mix is made up of foods which are either soft or have had the husk removed - e.g. the sunflower heart chips.  

3kg & 6kg available in paper packaging

    Having bought a variety of bird food products over the past few years I have found the quality is excellent and the delivery service very prompt and efficient. I have not started using the ground mix yet hence the general review but the content of it looks extremely good.

    First time I have tried this in a hanging feeder tray & on the ground. Haven't seen robins or blackbirds for a while (I have heard them about) but after a couple of days they were feeding when I put the mix out 7.30ish a.m.

    Attracts the ground-feeding birds to the garden although they do not like the sultanas. The cage I have protecting the feed from squirrels prevents the blackbirds etc from getting to the food.

    The addition of vine fruits is good. Although it's for ground feeders it needs to go in the hanging feeders in my garden. I hope it's ok for that

    This is a great mix, unfortunately at times you get the bottom of the barrel which has more dust / fines in, otherwise, I would give it 5 stars.

    This is proving very popular with my usual “customers” (robins, dunnocks) who have now been joined by blackbirds, redwings, chaffinches.

    All I can say is that the blackbirds, Thrushes, and Robins absolutely love this ground mix. Adults have been feeding their young and now the young chicks can’t get enough. Well recommended to keep these birds thriving. Wouldn’t buy from anywhere else now.

    The ground feed product is very good and gets eaten rather quickly!!! Price comparison seems to be in keeping with market averages, but the delivery time I have found is really good. Having previously bought from RSPB and a few others, I am very happy with Vine House Farm products.

With different families and species of garden birds favouring not just different foods but also different ways of feeding, it’s important to take both into account when choosing different bird foods and feeder options. A good example is ground feeding species of birds, with some of these being classed as softbills. As the name might suggest, these birds don’t have the ability to crack open seed husks in the way, for example, species of finch and tit can. 

From the thrush family, Blackbirds and Song thrushes are both softbills, and these are two of the species that our Ground Mix is aimed at. Other species which will eat at least some of the ingredients in our Ground Mix are Robins, Dunnocks and Starlings.

To suit the feeding habits of these birds, Ground Mix should be fed on a ground feeder, a bird table or directly on the ground. For the bird table, although this is obviously well off the ground, the flat surface will be viewed in much the same way by birds as the ground - the important point being that they don’t have to cling on to anything to feed.
