January 2021

  • Aspects has discontinued the 278 Vista Dome
  • Droll Yankees has discontinued the GS, AMO and JG. The DCF will now come in a plain carton
  • Note: Couriers are much slower than usual this season. They are backed up so much that they only pick up 3 days per week and many packages are sitting in trailers at their facilities for a while before getting processed. They are all working overtime and weekends to try to catch up.
  • Seed news:
    • Black oil sunflower is in high demand worldwide for bird seed and oil purposes due to a poor crop in Europe. Farmers are holding inventory hoping for higher prices and processors are weeks behind in packaging due to demand. Be careful with your stock and dont sell off to other stores.
    • Striped sunflower is in high demand from the confectionary market so supply is tight and some offerings are poorer than we wish.
    • White millet had a smaller crop so supply will be tight for the entire year. Otherwise new crop looks good. We have secured some European millet so supply will be safe.
  • Both Woodlink and Perky Pet/Woodstream/Yule Hyde are offering a number of new products. Supplies will be available spratically. Check our new products page as they arrive. There are some great new items!
