Current manufacturing restrictions have meant that our Super Suet Fat Balls may look different from normal. The ingredients are of the same high quality as always, but they may be finished differently, depending on how they are manufactured. The boxes of 150 have a smooth finish & the boxes of 50 have a striped finish. The plastic liner has also been removed from the packaging, as we are reducing our use of plastic where possible.

With 50% more fat than our traditional Suet Fat Balls, our Super Suet Fat Balls are a firm favourite with garden birds and an extremely popular choice in most peoples' gardens. They are a valuable source of energy for a wide range of species, with the Tit family especially enjoying them. Made up of mealworm powder, peanut & wheat flour, finely ground & mixed with the suet, giving a pale finish. Beware of cheap suet balls as they can be mixed with sand, grit or sweepings to bulk them out

FAQ Title 1

What are Super Suet Fat Balls?

FAQ Content 1

Also called fat balls, suet balls are typically made from animal suet and other fat which is mixed with further ingredients so the product keeps its shape and also to preserve it. A very important point to understand about suet and fat balls is that the quality varies hugely between suppliers – and the poorer the quality the less beneficial they are to birds. So if you see suet or fat balls for sale which are very cheap, then you can almost guarantee that the quality will be poor and specifically the percentage of suet in them will be relatively low. All the suet balls we sell at Vine House Farm are of course of a high quality.

FAQ Title 2

What birds can I attract to my garden with Super Suet Fat Balls?

FAQ Content 2

The main species will be Great tit, Coal tit, Long-tailed tit, Blue tit and Starling, and depending on the type of feeder you use Robin as well. For Robins, the main requirement is a feeder they can easily stand on rather than hang from – which they find very difficult to do – and this Fat Ball Feeder Ring is ideal.

FAQ Title 3

What are the benefits of Super Suet Fat Balls from Vine House Farm?

FAQ Content 3 Besides the high quantity of suet, Vine House Farm’s suet balls do not have the potentially harmful plastic netting usually found on fat balls, which eliminates the possibility of birds getting entangled in the netting.
FAQ Title 4

How do I feed your suet balls to birds without the netting?

FAQ Content 4

The best way is to use a special hanging feeder specifically designed for suet balls, and we sell a wide range of these including some with an outer cage to prevent larger birds such as Jackdaws getting to the food.

    I have been buying bird food from Vine House Farm for many years and have always found the products to be good, reasonably priced and with excellent delivery times. During lockdown, when the super suet fat balls were, for a time , unavailable from Vine House, I tried two other sorts of fat balls which turned out to be inferior and the birds simply did not like them. So I and my feathered friends were pleased when the supply from Vine House Farm was resumed.

    The birds love them! They smell good enough to eat - very peanutty! One thing to point out is that they tend to get a bit sticky in the warm weather so probably better to restrict them to cooler days.

    I don’t know what they do to make them ‘super’ but I know which the birds prefer judging by the rate at which they disappear from the feeders. (Nothing worse than having to throw away a half eaten fat ball that has gone green with mould because the birds don’t like it). I have to use squirrel proof feeders because even they like them. I used an idea I found in an RSPB magazine to bore holes in a log, fit it upright to a fence post, and fill the holes with the suet, it was suggested that this would give a more natural way for great spotted woodpeckers to perch and feed, it turns out that the woodpecker is not the only bird who appreciates this convenience, as it’s not only sparrows and tits that use it, a young raven has also found it to its liking. (I did fit a perch below one of the holes for the starlings and blackbirds which it also uses). When they come back into stock I will certainly be ordering more.

    Very popular with blue tits. I put 4 in a caged feeder so that I can feed small birds. If I don’t use a feeder with a cage the jackdaws make very short work of these fat balls. Jackdaws are very clever and I trust they can find other foods.

    They're good -- one little problem only. They're so soft that the corvines (esp. the magpies) hang on the feeder and demolish the fat balls in a quick snowstorm of fallout; the balls are perhaps a bit too soft. They disappear v rapidly, though the little birds (blue tit, great tit) pop in at more peaceful moments, and the dunnock quietly cleans up the detritus on the ground. We're rationing consumption to 2 a day, rather than 3, to make them last a little longer! If the fat balls were just a little "tougher", the corvines would have to slow up a bit. But we are satisfied customers, basically. Thank you!

    As they say, probably the best fat balls in the world. Certainly here in N Yorkshire they are fed on by everything - Long Tailed Tits, Starlings, Nuthatch, Jackdaws, Robins etc etc - they all love them. They softened but remained intact in the heatwave - perfect. Usual fantastic service from VHF. Came with a large sack of Sunflower hearts - yes it is a few pence cheaper buying Bulgarian ones from A*az*n - but that isnt doing anyone or the planet any favours. Well done VHF - great product and great service.

    The fat balls are excellent. The birds love them, including the magpies which go to extreme lengths to get some from a “Large Bird Proof” feeder. They are clever birds and their antics are great to watch. The fat balls are good value and work well.

    All our bird visitors seem to enjoy these suet fat balls - their popularity is certainly worth the additional cost compared to others we have tried. Vine House Farm were prompt and reliable on delivery although the packaging of our subsequent order for a quantity of 150 suet fat balls (packaged within one bag/box) did result in a number of casualties!

    I like the way they hold together well, and the birds certainly enjoy them. The packaging was good, with the cardboards box recyclable.

FAQS

What are Super Suet Fat Balls?

Also called fat balls, suet balls are typically made from animal suet and other fat which is mixed with further ingredients so the product keeps its shape and also to preserve it. A very important point to understand about suet and fat balls is that the quality varies hugely between suppliers – and the poorer the quality the less beneficial they are to birds. So if you see suet or fat balls for sale which are very cheap, then you can almost guarantee that the quality will be poor and specifically the percentage of suet in them will be relatively low. All the suet balls we sell at Vine House Farm are of course of a high quality.

What birds can I attract to my garden with Super Suet Fat Balls?

The main species will be Great tit, Coal tit, Long-tailed tit, Blue tit and Starling, and depending on the type of feeder you use Robin as well. For Robins, the main requirement is a feeder they can easily stand on rather than hang from – which they find very difficult to do – and this Fat Ball Feeder Ring is ideal.

What are the benefits of Super Suet Fat Balls from Vine House Farm?

Besides the high quantity of suet, Vine House Farm’s suet balls do not have the potentially harmful plastic netting usually found on fat balls, which eliminates the possibility of birds getting entangled in the netting.

How do I feed your suet balls to birds without the netting?

The best way is to use a special hanging feeder specifically designed for suet balls, and we sell a wide range of these including some with an outer cage to prevent larger birds such as Jackdaws getting to the food.
