The Little Feed Company has been created to provide an artisan-style alternative to the major feed manufacturers. Your animals’ health and the quality of our ingredients is the core of our business. The Little Feed Company supports local producers, choosing British ingredients where possible and environmentally friendly packaging. Provenance is important to ensure ingredient quality and ethical production.
The Little Feed Company selects the best ingredients, and manufactures its products in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. Manufacturing is performed by a local Devon company with the highest quality assurance standards (UFAS & BETA NOPS approved) This is important for preventing contamination and ensuring product safety.
The Little Feed Company specializes in producing unique products for owners who wish to support the health and vitality of their animals in a natural way. We carefully combine herbs, feed ingredients and nutraceuticals to give real results with no harmful side effects.
The Little Feed Company is passionate about the environment and limiting the impact we have upon it. We therefore work hard to reduce our packaging waste and use of plastics. To date, every cardboard box and piece of packing we use when posting parcels has been re-used. We collect up packaging from local businesses that would otherwise have been thrown away and give it another use. We hope that some of our packing goes on to be used again and again! Afterall, it is only ‘single use’ if you use it once!
We are also committed to reducing the amount of plastic we use in our business. Unfortunately, as a small facility, this is very difficult for certain products, especially liquids. At the moment, alternatives are few and far between but we will keep trying. We already use bio-degradable pouches for several of our feeds. If we all work together to reduce our impact on the environment, we WILL make a difference.
We are registered with Trading Standards and fully insured.
Devon is already renowned in the food industry for the huge array of locally produced, quality and speciality foods for humans, so we felt it was about time our animals also benefited from this wonderful heritage!
About our Founder – Hermione Perry MSc
Hermione was riding before she could walk! Brought up on a small farm in mid-Devon, animal care is in her blood. After gaining a degree in Biology from Exeter University, Hermione (& her horse!) crossed the border to Wales to complete a Masters Degree in Equine Science, where she specialized in equine nutrition. For the last 19 years, Hermione has worked in the equine supplement industry, formulating products, advising customers and sourcing unique ingredients. Her work has sent her to places as far away as Dubai, but Devon is where her heart is, and where she lives with her family (and other animals).
Says Hermione…’After working with some of the industry leaders, now is the right time to launch my own range of animal health products. I feel that many large manufacturers have lost their way, focusing on producing more products in the quickest time for the greatest profits. By keeping it small, The Little Feed Company can focus on the fundamental aspects of animal ownership – providing our horses, pets and animals with top quality, natural nutrition, helping them to regain some balance and lead a happy, healthy life in a world which is far different to the one they evolved for.
I am in a unique position – scientifically qualified with huge commercial experience but with first hand experience of the joys & trials of owning animals. My current menagerie includes horses, chickens, cats, a dog and some guinea pigs. Like any owner, I have had my fair share of vet bills and first hand experience of laminitis, sweet itch, box rest, azoturia etc. (You name it, and one of my horses has probably had it!)
I am really looking forward to sharing a range of natural, high quality and unique products, of which I am hugely proud.
If you have any concerns with the health of your animals, it is always important that you contact your Vet as soon as possible.
