"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."
