About Scratch and Peck Feeds

Scratch and Peck Feeds' President and Founder, Diana Ambauen-Meade, started making her own chicken feed in 2009, because she couldn’t find a high quality, organic whole grain feed in stores. Her first batch was made in a borrowed cement mixer she kept in her backyard. It didn’t take long for like-minded folks to find out about her natural feeds and want to be able to care for their own animals in the same way. Diana was on her way to realizing her dream of making the best quality whole grain animal feeds with grains grown by local organic farmers.

Fast forward to 2012, when Scratch and Peck Feeds became the first Non-GMO Project Verified animal feed manufacturer in North America, then stepped it up to become Certified Organic in 2013. They were the first feed manufacturer in the nation to hold both certifications. Leading the sustainable food movement by example is key to their mission.

They envision a world where organic and whole foods are found on every table, organic agriculture is dominant, animals are humanely raised, and people understand that you are what your animals eat.

Every decision made at Scratch and Peck Feeds is with the intent of making life better for the planet and all living creatures. To make change, we need to lead by example. We are dedicated to sustainable farming and supporting local agriculture by buying directly from farmers we know and trust. We believe in doing our part to make our world a better place.
