Lafeber Company: Premium Pet Bird Food & A Wealth Of Bird Care Resources

Lafeber Company is a strong family company built by a father and son team of veterinarians with a shared love of animals and a special passion for birds. The very first commercial bird food pellet was developed by Dr. Lafeber, Sr., and made in the back room of his veterinary clinic. Dr. Lafeber’s son followed in his footsteps, eventually became his business partner and together they developed many of the favorite Lafeber diets. The business has now passed to the second generation of the Lafeber family, and the legacy of quality continues.

Our recipes are developed by Dr. Lafeber along with top avian veterinarians and nutritionists. Every formula is tested by an independent laboratory to ensure optimum avian health. We also consult leading experts of bird behavior so that our diets provide enrichment and enjoyment for our feathered friends along with the best nutrition possible.

Lafeber Company uses only the finest non-GMO, natural ingredients in every product. Seeds, fruits and vegetables are hand-inspected upon arrival to our plant. Many of the grains are literally grown right outside of our front door.

Our manufacturing facility has always been located on the Lafeber Family farmland, and all of our pet bird food products are mixed, formed, and packaged under one roof with equipment specifically designed for small batches of bird food. Carefully watching our bird food production process from start to finish gives us the best opportunity to maintain our high-quality standards.

Hard work is another key component behind the Lafeber line. Artisans perform in every capacity of our operation and work closely together in our unique setting. Our associates take personal pride in their work, and their dedication has helped Lafeber Company rise to the top of the industry over the years.

At Lafeber Company we personally understand the hearts of our customers and the love they have for their birds. We know our customers expect the best, and we are honored by their trust in our products. Lafeber Company has built a reputation for quality pet bird food, and we strive to hold true to our quest for excellence as we move forward. Our mission to this day revolves around the simple premise Dr. Lafeber established many years ago. Feel free to contact us for further information pet bird care and nutrition.
