Scratch and Peck Feeds
Washington, United States
Scratch and Peck Feeds' President and Founder, Diana Ambauen-Meade, started making her own chicken feed in 2009, because she couldnÕt 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 didnÕt 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.
