Alice asked asked the Cheshire Cat, who was sitting in a tree: “What road should I take?” “Where would you like to go?” responded the cat. “I don’t know,” Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “why not head over to the Mad Hatters Tea Party at the Marriage’s Stand at PATS Sandown, stand T15?”
That’s right, at PATS Sandown on February 9-10, Marriage’s and Honeyfield’s Wild Bird will be hosting a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
On the Marriage’s and Honeyfield’s stand, show visitors will be treated to an assortment of tea, coffee and biscuits. While at the stand, they will see why Marriages’ millers have been going since 1824 and why their wild bird brand, Honeyfield’s, is becoming a key player in the industry.
Over the past 12 months, the Honeyfield’s range has doubled in size, with innovations in its birdseed, treats and feeder ranges, with the star of the show being the ‘Nutri-Bombs’. The fat balls have no fillers such as limestone, calcium carbonate, sand, chalk or clay.
The Honeyfield’s range offers a range to suit all budgets and garden sizes, and Marriage’s will be displaying its Fair to Nature range of bird seed, treats, feeders, new nest boxes and bird table at PATS.
Honeyfield’s was the first supplier of Fair to Nature Birdseed in the UK, which meant it to had to commit, where ingredients allowed, to using cereals and other seeds grown on Fair to Nature farms. These farms grow specific areas of seed-bearing crops to provide food for farmland bird species such as linnets, skylarks, and buntings.
“This is an incredibly important step to ensuring the conservation of wildlife, especially with the butterfly population decreasing by 72% in the past decade, and with fewer than obe million hedgehogs left living in the UK,” said Honeyfield’s and Marriage’s managing director Sam Marriage.
“In todays’ modern world, 61% of consumers say they’re likely to switch to a brand that is more environmentally friendly than their current brand. So, our commitment to reducing waste and providing Fair to Nature products truly resonates with the consumer.”
