Perfect for finch lovers who also want to attract songbirds!
Meadow Ridge Farms Finch Mix is designed and specially formulated to meet the dietary needs of all kinds of beautiful finches. It is a great blend for backyard bird watchers who have multiple feeder types or want to add a finch feeder to their collection.
Our signature finch mix contains thistle(Nyjer), sunflower hearts, and other premium seeds which are oil-rich, high in protein & fat, and packed with the energy finches crave. Seeds high in fat are particularly beneficial to birds in winter months to help them survive as temperatures drop and the ground is covered in snow.
Our Finch Mix only features small, oil-rich seeds which are preferred by birds with smaller beaks such as goldfinches, purple finches, siskins, juncos, redpolls, chickadees, nuthatches, tanagers, buntings, towhees, and more. Using this blend can also attract other birds who prefer high-fat seeds such as cardinals, grosbeaks, pine siskins, sparrows, doves, and many more.
Finch Mix seeds are very small and are best used in the following feeder types: small-hole tube feeders, thistle feeders, Nyjer feeders, mesh feeders, and thistle sacks/socks.
All our bird seed is made with the freshest and highest quality ingredients. Our mixes are blended and bagged daily at our historic mill in Delano, Minnesota.

Tips for buying & storing bird seed:
How much bird seed do I need?The amount of birds in your area and time of year are the biggest factors in how much bird seed you will go through, but a good rule of thumb is that a typical bird feeder will go through about 1-2 pounds of bird seed per week.
Are the bags easy to carry?Our 8 pound bags are definitely the easiest to carry and you can fill your feeders directly from the bag. The 20 pound bags are manageable by most adults but can still be a bit heavy if trying to fill your feeders directly from the bag.
Storing your bird seedRegardless of what size bag you buy, it is CRUCIAL that you always store your leftover bird seed in an airtight container that is rodent-proof. It's best to keep your container in a cool, dry place. This will both keep the bird seed fresh as well as free from being eaten by unwanted pests. It's also important not to mix new bird seed with old bird seed.

Where should I place my feeders?
The placement of your feeders will depend on your yard or balcony size. For smaller yards, many people choose to just have one feeder, and it's best to place it about 10 feet away from trees or shrubbery so birds can safely fly to the feeder and back to the shelter to perch. For larger yards, having multiple feeders and feeder types is a great way to attract the most birds as possible. As the birds nest, they become more territorial and spacing feeders throughout your yard is critical so birds can comfortably come to the feeders.
There are no birds at my feeder, what am i doing wrong?
If you are adding feeders to your yard for the first time, it's important to remember that it can take time for birds to discover the new food source. During warmer months, when there is an abundance of natural food available, birds will come by less often. As the temperature cools, bird feeders begin seeing much more traffic. It can also help to try at least two feeders and two different bird seed blends to attract as many species as possible. Another quick trick to attract birds to your feeder is to also add a bird bath nearby, particularly a heated bird bath in winter when water is hard to come by.
