Ark Hearty Bird Food


28th April 2015

Last Updated: 22nd March 2024

As part of their continuing commitment to food excellence, Ark Wildlife is pleased to announce a new addition to their range- Ark® Hearty™ Bird Seed Mixes.

In a busy market, full of similar sounding names from multiple manufacturers Ark Wildlife needs to stand out as the premium choice for the conscientious consumer. The entire wild bird food range from Ark Wildlife has been carefully researched and blended to boost bird health and closely match the intended recipients’ natural feeding patterns; this is what makes Ark different.

The new Ark® Hearty™ brand is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 60% sunflower hearts for oil and protein, blended with carefully selected high carbohydrate and tonic seeds and zero fillers such as wheat or split peas. This allows the consumer to instantly recognise the quality of the food in addition to all the other listed benefits such as no mess, non-growing, pet safe and others.

The Ark Hearty™ brand consists of the Ark Hearty™ Mealworm Mix and the Ark Hearty™ Suet Mix. There is also a highly-popular No Mess Feeder Mix, featuring sunflower seeds and small seeds.

Ark Hearty Mealworm Mix

Ark Wildlife’s roots were firmly planted in the garden in early 1991, when Sean McMenemy (founder and Managing Director) was busy creating wildlife habitats for his customers, long before school curriculums and TV shows such as BBC’s Springwatch widened their popularity. From an early age his passion demanded he work with wildlife and so Sean spent his early years promoting the benefits of gardening for wildlife in towns as well as countryside, culminating in the formation of the current company.

The development of Ark Wildlife into one of the UK’s leading garden wildlife specialists is unsurprising when you consider the deep knowledge and direct experience Sean brings with him to the business. Unlike any other bird care or wildlife supplier, it is Sean’s passion in everything he does that is reflected in the quality of every product and the service excellence that others cannot match.
