Winter & The Holiday Season Are HERE!
IN THE STORE:
It’s Winter Gardening time! Where else but in Florida can you say that?
Our in-store activities slow down this time of year just a bit, but we definitely have some fun planned for you.
Saturday, December 14th, join us for the Monthly Community Seed Swap from 9-10:30am. It’s free and open to anyone who wants to do some seed/plant/cutting swapping with their gardening neighbors. It will be a little bit holiday-themed so feel free to join in the fun!
Also on December 14th, we’re holding a Holiday Maker’s Workshop – Decorate a Bird Feeder. Birds need a little extra food when it gets cold in order to stay warm, and what better way than to give them a little feeder. At this workshop you can use our Decoration Station to decorate a feeder and take it home – it includes 1 lb of Shell’s Wild Bird Seed mix – which brings a wide variety of birdies for you to watch! That will be happening from 9am-1pm – first come first serve, and a limited supply of feeders for $9.95. We also have other bare-wood houses and feeders, so if you want to decorate one, purchase the feeder/house you like and use our Decoration Station that day!
It’s Seed Potato season now too…watch for our announcements.
New stuff on the docket for Fall and Winter, you can see our Events Calendar right here on the website!!! Buy your class tickets straight from the event page in the calendar. Easy!
We love bringing you great educational content here at the store, and in our blog and newsletter too. You mean you’re not on our email list yet? Sign up right here!! You’ll get exclusive announcements, sale coupons, and more benefits! We’re constantly adding to that program, called the Shell’s Members Club.
We are so thrilled to be in our 58th year here in beautiful Tampa, Florida! Thank you for making this possible. We have lots of great useful stuff here in the store, but as Mr. Shell likes to say, what we really sell is service. Service to you, our customers, is the most important thing we can do!
Speaking of, if you haven’t already, TELL YOUR FRIENDS about us! We carry great pet & garden supplies, we have the best prices on bird seed for your feeders, and fantastic staff to help with your pest control, lawn, garden, pet problems, chickens & farm questions, and so much more!
Winter time is a great time to grow certain crops here in Florida. If you were at our What To Plant In Your Florida Winter Garden Class that happened in November, you’d know exactly what works best – and how to tell if what you want to grow will actually grow at this time of year.
Here’s a couple of good articles for the season:
As usual, we carry the very best pet foods around, at awesome prices – and Made in the USA products are available! Diamond, Diamond Naturals, Diamond Grain Free, Taste of the Wild as well as Blue Buffalo and more are here for your dogs and cats. We have Purina and Manna Pro for your farm animals (chickens, horses, pigs, ducks…you get the idea), and great foods, treats, and supplies for just about every kind of exotic pet out there, including brands such as Kaytee, ZuPreem, Scarlett, Mazuri, and more. We have a food to fit every animal’s needs and every owner’s budget to give your pets the best nutrition for your money. Check out our online store for feed we have listed there!
Having a problem with your pet? Just ask us! We’re happy to help advise. We carry specialty items for skin, grooming products, flea control, and so much more. We also have a large assortment of durable toys for mega-chewers and pets who love to run, fetch, tug, and have lots of fun!
WILD BIRD SUPPLIES
One of the greatest parts of the store is our bird seed area. We have bird seed for so many different kinds of birds, both pet birds and wild birds. We have cages, cage supplies, toys, food, & treats for your pet birds that they will LOVE. We also have wild bird feeders and bird houses too, so your wild birds can happily munch on some snacks and nest while you look on. Our staff can help you mix seeds to attract different kinds of birds to your yard, so you can experiment to find just the right combinations to attract beautiful birds and feed your inner bird-watching needs. Want more information about what seed attracts the different kinds of birds? Check out this article from the blog: Shell’s Feed Bird Food Guide
LIVE CHICKENS & RABBITS:
We have live baby chickens and everything they need for getting your fresh eggs daily. Also, baby rabbits (when available) and all of their needs as well. We also occasionally carry geese, turkeys, and ducks, so keep a look out for that from our weekly Chicken Report!
We do sell great pre-built rabbit hutches. We have bedding, food, treats, waterers, cage and pen supplies, vaccines, and everything you need to care for your chickens and rabbits.
If you want to know what kind of birds we have right now, of course you can stop by or call us, but you can also check out our weekly chicken report right here. It is updated every Saturday for the previous week’s arrivals. If you want a specific bird you see online, we definitely suggest you call us to make sure we haven’t sold out in the week between the updates before you make the drive!
We have so much greatness in one local family-owned store, you should come check us out!
And finally, make sure you Like and Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and/or Google for extra sale specials, surveys, and other things that won’t be announced anywhere else!

Tampa Nearly a decade prior, the dream of a man who at once decided to make a better life for himself and his family, not only came to fruition, but succeeded beyond imagination. Shell’s Feed and Garden Supply has become a household name to many in and around the Tampa Bay area and has been family owned and operated since opening day.
