The owners of Nature’s Way Bird Products have always enjoyed a deep appreciation of nature, and putting up their first birdfeeder almost 30 years ago as a learning experience for their children soon grew into a lasting family hobby.
Their move to northeast Ohio presented them with an abundance of local and migratory birds to watch, and the number of birdfeeders increased and birdhouses soon followed. Before long, birdfeeders and birdhouses were being built together by dad and kids for use in the yard and to give as gifts to family and friends. The family learned many enjoyable lessons over the years: types of seed birds preferred; interesting food and house choices birds sometimes make; and dealing with sparrows that thought the bluebird houses were for them!
As this hobby developed, they also grew to notice the inadequacies of feeders and houses on the market, as well as the lack of innovation and support offered to independent specialty retailers. With 30 years of sales and marketing experience under their belts paired with a true love of birding, research, prototypes, and field testing soon followed. Consulting with independent store owners, park district naturalists, birders, and business professionals across the country, they developed a new line of birdfeeders and birdhouses, and Nature’s Way Bird Products was born!
Nature’s Way Bird Products has 15 patents and 7 trademarks pending that offer the most innovative designs and superior quality in the industry:
