THE SUN COUNTRY FARMS
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 birdseed company in the world.
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.”
“Sun Country is now greening the highways across America to ensure that all customers can pick up their green birding products up at retailers across North America, emission free”
Sun Country's Philosophy is simple; If companies produce wild bird products, they should not destroy bird habitat in the process. We strive to:
Ensure that you get more birds than ever to your feeders
Ensure that you get birds to your feeders that you have never seen before
Produce bird products without damaging bird habitat in the manufacturing process
Leave the world a better place than when Sun Country Farms began!
