Our philosophy has always been to provide our customers with healthy pets and the knowledge to keep those pets healthy. We sell fish, plants, and invertebrates from around the world, including the common species and the not so common. Our breeding facilities are now beginning to produce more of the rarer types of fish and invertebrates and will continue to grow in size to accomplish our goals. Many of our reptiles are bred in captivity, thereby, easing the pressure on native populations. During the spring and summer months, we also sell baby chicks, ducklings, and turkeys for the homestead, 4-H projects, or just pets. Most of these breeds are on the endangered or watch lists. Our breeding facility at Winserf Farms is now beginning to produce some of these chicks. We appreciate the support we have received in the past and invite you to join us in an exciting future.
