Chickens Need Grub, Too
This year, backyard chickens are all the rage. With so many people staying at home, it’s the perfect time to hone those husbandry skills and nurture a flock. Grubbly Farms makes it easy to treat your chickens like queens. Grubblies, their signature item, are dried black soldier fly grubs, a healthy daily snack that chickens love that help produce stronger shells and healthier feathers. Our favorite part? The ladies will follow you – even into their coup – for these tiny delicacies. Grubblies are safely and sustainably harvested on FDA-approved grub farms for the fluffy ones you love. Nothing from China. They are 100% Natural, with no preservatives or sprays. They also have Grubbly Layer Feed, a really superior, naturally balanced feed made with farm-grown insect protein and plant-based ingredients, empowering you to feed your flock the way nature intended. No fishmeal!

We just love the FurZapper. It’s so simple, yet so powerful. Add it to laundry, either the dryer or washer, and it removes fur from your laundry. Yes, we’re serious.

Copper Pet Bowls
Copper water bottles are great choices for people with wellness on the mind, and a copper water bowl can also be a great choice for your pet. Copper naturally inhibits the growth of bacteria and viruses in your pet’s water. As a result, using a copper pet bowl can help avoid the biofilm that forms in other types of pet bowls. Biofilm, which is a by-product of your pet’s saliva mixing with water, can contain disease causing viruses and bacteria. Copper pet bowls can prevent biofilm from forming due to copper’s antimicrobial properties. Instead of scrubbing biofilm the hard way, cleaning your pet bowl can be as simple as running your bowl under hot water with gentle soap and then wiping the bowl completely clean. Not only does this copper pet bowl have these benefits, it also looks great.
