Maplestead Farm

Responsible farming, rooted in nature

Nestled deep within the beautiful Essex countryside, Maplestead Farm is a homegrown, family-run business. For hundreds of years, we’ve been harnessing nature to feed our local community. Our farm is rooted in traditional methods, we respect the land, protect natural spaces and farm responsibly.


We’ve always loved our winged visitors here at Maplestead Farm; we’ve been feeding them for generations and they inspired us to set up Mapleseeds.

We know how important it is to support our British wild birds with the right nutrition. Choosing a balanced bird food helps native species to thrive and grow, encourages new visitors, provides a seasonal boost when food is scarce and helps to support fledglings when they leave the nest.

Because nutrition is so important, we take great care in blending and preparing our bird food mixes. We grow ingredients here on the farm wherever possible, supplemented with seeds, grains, fruits and nuts from carefully selected providers. Our blends are mixed, packaged and sold here on the farm, ensuring only the very best quality.

We put nature first on our farm too. We farm responsibly, protecting and actively growing our natural spaces and using the latest environmental practices.
