New Bird Houses For Sale

We now have new birdhouses available. They are all pictured in the slideshow above this post. The one featured in this post could be used by bluebirds or nuthatches. It has a 1 1/2" hole, and has an easy-open feature for end of the summer cleaning. The feeders are made almost entirely of reclaimed wood, either from old barn board, or cedar scraps leftover from building fences and other items. All except the woodpecker feeder have a chain at the top for hanging in a tree. The woodpecker feeder should be mounted to a post or tree. Please see ordering instructions at the top of the page, along with information on some freshly roasted coffee that you can enjoy while watching your feathered friends. Contact us at with any questions.

Why SeedsNBeans?

So, why would someone choose such an odd combination of products? Coffee, bird feeders, bird seed? It all started one crazy afternoon after visiting a quirky little store that specializes in wild bird feeders and bird seed. The conversation went something like this:

"It's too bad we don't have a store like that near us."

"Why don't we start one?"

"Oh, no. It would have to have a cafe area where people could sit, and sip coffee and watch the birds . . . . . and we could call it SeedsNBeans!"

And SeedsNBeans was born. Of course, the physical shop is a long term goal, sort of a dream, if you will. The online store is just the beginning!

The Perfect Gift

The perfect gift for that Wisconsin Badgers fan! (Or fans of any other teams sporting red and white as their team colors!) They retail for $20 each. We can paint these in any color combination you desire! Progress on our online store is chugging along. Our swing feeders are now available in a lawn and garden center in Mishicot, and we have a graphics designer working on a logo for us. Any questions? Email us at

Porch Swing Screen Feeder

Local sales of our birdfeeders is going well. We have them in a shop in DePere, a barbershop in Two Rivers, and have also sold a few just by word of mouth. It's tough to keep up with the demand! Pictured above is one of our feeders. It's a miniature porch swing modified to create a unique screen feeder. They would work well for sunflower seeds. The photo above is stained. We have also painted them green and gold (Go Pack!) and red and white (Go Badgers!). They can also be left a natural light wood color with a polyurethane sealant to protect the wood. They retail for $20.
