About the event

China Prairie is the premier source of sprouting seeds and mixes. Dee will be giving demonstrations on how to use The Easy Sprouter, dispelling myths about sprouting, and answering all your questions about sprouting.

"China Prairie Company has been around for 39 wonderful years! First  started by Fred Bauer in Northern California on his 81 acre  property in the middle of the Humboldt forest. He was a very well-known  aviculturist/breeder of many species of parrots, but  particularly Eclectus parrots. He co-wrote one of the first in-depth  books on the species titled "The Complete Guide to Eclectus Parrots"  along with authors K. Wayne Arthur, and Laurella Desborough.

A naturalist and farmer at heart, he grew all of his own food for himself and his huge flock that at one point was over 200 breeding  pairs. Much food was required but not just any food, very nutritious  food! They got the benefit of the flowers he grew along with lots of  fruits and vegetables, and large free flying outdoor enclosures to  stretch those beautiful wings. Thus the China Prairie Diet was born.  Fred sprouted for himself and recognized the extremely beneficial nutrients that a germinated and sprouted seed(s) held.  

Knowing that birds eat seeds and grains out in nature in all states of  germination, it made perfect sense to develop a blend to aid in parrot  nutrition. He formulated the China Prairie Diet over an 18 year period  with this in mind along with nutrient dense wholefood supplements made  of herbs and flowers to top the sprouted blends. This became a very  efficient way of feeding and his birds were rarely ill.

Fast forward to 2022 and we are still going strong, and helping  customers give their parrot(s) the most nutritious food possible! Fred  has long since retired ,and still lives by the California ocean but is always my bird mentor and guru. I have led the Company since 2014, and  we are still dedicated to the mission of providing the most natural and  nutritious food available for birds. Our heart is in it and we would not  do it any differently."
