We are a family owned and ran company who have always had a passion for animals and their well being.
Take a moment to read our story here....
Eddie Kell at the age of 8 develops a passion for rabbits, in particular the Dutch breed.
Eddie and Pauline Kell started their business with just 12 hens. Offering fresh eggs for the local villages of Browney, Meadowfield and Brandon. The business proves popular and gradually hen numbers increase year on year.
As the business grew, so did the hens, now with an average of over 6,000 hens producing eggs for the local villages as well as shops and catering businesses. Alongside this they had a wholesale fruit and vegetable business supplying shops, takeaways and even the prisons in County Durham with fresh produce. Growth also meant we now had two shops retailing in the area. Along with the growth the business now trades as ‘Eggy Shell’.
We started to retail from our Browney store with a small range of animal feeds
Sean (son of Eddie & Pauline) takes over the reigns after a decade working in retail himself. The business is rebranded as ‘The Feed Warehouse’ along with a new logo to match.
With a constant growth in business and simply outgrowing our storage at the Browney store, we decide to purchase Store No.2 at Consett! This was a former car showroom and repair garage with a large yard for artic access to help us buy bigger and better.
We update our logo to bring a bit more of our company colours into it. The logo is both Copyrighted and Trademarked for futureproofing.
We introduce our own range of feeds for Equine, Dog, Cat, Ferret and Wild Bird.
