About ‘ the feed bin ’
In the summer of 1995 the founder of the feed bin (Julie Fisher) began supplying local stables, farms, breeders and private individuals with all their animal feeds and bedding requirements. The name ' the feed bin' was thought up by Margaret, Julie's Mum (Q:Where do your store your animals feed?? A: the feed bin ).
To promote the business Julie would spend every weekend at a show locally, and every day in between doing deliveries. Julie's Parents Margaret & Eddie would be answering the phone and taking orders
In 2000 a new van and trailer were purchased. Deliveries were then seven days a week, based on a two week rota to different areas of Bedfordshire / Hertfordshire.
Friday 13th December 2002 (not that we are superstitious) a road accident caused the van to be written off, and deliveries ceased - clients came to the Fisher family home to collect instead. the feed bin carried on.
After the purchase of a Vivaro van in 2011, deliveries have resumed. Still based on the principle of supplying to order, we visit our wholesalers four times weekly. This allows for prompt same day availability for collection of local delivery. Orders are taken as necessary, or planned weeks in advance.
The plan for the immediate future is an online shop, and before the end of the decade... a pet shop in Wigmore - next to the chippy!!!???!!!
We at the the feed bin would like to take the opportunity to thank all our customers - longstanding or recently new - for their loyalty and custom. If there is anything we can do to improve the service we provide you, or any comments you would like to make, please let us know.
