Who are we?
Poltross Wild Bird Foods is a small, Northumberland-based family business. We specialise in supplying quality wild bird foods and accessories to domestic customers in North Cumbria and South Northumberland. We offer a free delivery service to your door, with no minimum order.
Why buy from us?.
At Poltross Wild Bird Foods, we believe in quality, convenience and keen prices! Our products are of a quality far superior to the bulk of those which are available locally, and we have a much more extensive product range than anyone else in our area. We are members of the Birdcare Standards Association -always look for the BSA logo when buying birdfoods – it’s your guarantee of quality products. Buying from us is particularly convenient – you can order at any reasonable time of the day, including weekends and bank holidays. If we can, we’ll answer the phone in person! What’s more, we recognise that not everyone uses bird food by the sack load. When you buy from us, you order the quantity YOU want, be it 1 kilo or 101 kilos! Finally, we operate a tiered pricing structure that means you don’t have to buy lots to make savings!
Where we deliver to…
Delivery is by our own transport, and takes in the bulk of the Hadrian’s Wall corridor, extending as far as Ponteland in the east, and the Solway coast in the west. Presently, we go as far north as Hethersgill and Bellingham, and our southern boundary extends to Alston.
If you live just outside these areas, please do get in touch – we may be able to go a little further! In due course, as we gain a larger customer base, we hope to be able to serve a wider area.
If you live in South Cumbria, or North Lancashire, we recommend you visit Watchers Wildlife and Countryside Shop at Grange-over-Sands. In addition to stocking quality wild bird foods, they also keep a vast range of feeders and nesting boxes, as well as the largest range of binoculars and telescopes in South Lakeland. Email us if you need more details!
When do we deliver?
We currently deliver at least once a week in all areas. During winter, deliveries may be more frequent. At the moment, we deliver in Northumberland on Wednesday and Cumbria on Friday.
Our customers who have previously used mail order suppliers tell us that what they dislike most is having bulky sacks of food left on their doorstep when they aren’t in! With Poltross Wild Bird Foods you don’t usually have that problem. We aim to be as flexible as possible when planning our deliveries. We try our best to work our schedule so that you are in when we deliver, and what’s more, we’ll happily carry your order to where you want to store it, be it the garage, the utility room or the garden shed! In the event that you won’t be in when we deliver, we can make arrangements to leave your order in a convenient place.
