This page is a work in progress!

Building community relationships is very important here at Shell’s Feed, and sharing knowledge is one of the ways that we accomplish this mission.  We feel that the more you know about the topics surrounding the products we sell, the more you’ll stop in and say hello to us.

Here you will find articles we’ve written and other guides to help support your gardening dreams and chicken and pet care needs as well.

As always, feel free to stop in and ask for advice – we have plenty of solutions to help with any issues you encounter in the garden, on the farm, with pests, and with pets too.
