Gardening Month at Camdenton Farm and Garden!

April is Gardening Month, and it's really the perfect time for it. The world is waking from its sleepy winter slumber, and it's finally time to start getting your gardening gloves out.

Check out some of these products that we recommend 100% for your landscape and garden areas!



Animal Repellants

The time has come to start making plans on how you will protect your dear plants from the … deer. Of course, there are other pests who will get hungry for the flowers in your front yard and the greenery that you’ve so carefully nurtured as well. Rabbits and deer are the prime culprits when considering the attack on your garden, so arming yourself with the best animal repellant at the Lake of the Ozarks is key. We believe that there is no better product on the market than Liquid Fence. Our customers must agree because they keep coming back year after year to keep this in stock. You'll want to apply the product when the plants start to emerge and then follow up with every two-week applications.

Bird Feeding In February

If you didn’t know, February is Bird Feeding Month! It’s timely because now is when those feathered friends need all the help they can get. As their food supplies become depleted, and there is less and less to choose from, they will be especially thankful for your bird feeders at the Lake of the Ozarks. Camdenton Farm and Garden enjoys this fun tradition as a way to add some fun to the cold winter months. As we wait for buds to pop and gardening season to come back, here are a few great tools and tips you’ll need for feeding birds at the Lake of the Ozarks!


Bird Feeders at the Lake of the Ozarks

No two birds breeds are alike, and with that, no two bird feeders are either. Depending on what types of birds you want to attract to your yard, or what you already have living there, you’ll want to find the best feeder for them. Here are the types you can find at Camdenton Farm and Garden! If you need something different, be sure to ask us, we’re pretty good at finding just about anything farm or garden related. In fact, we’re known far and wide as “the” place to find the best bird feeders in Missouri.


Bird Seed at the Lake of the Ozarks

Whether you are a true birder, or you are just a beginner, there really is no place around where you can find a wider variety of wild/exotic bird food at the Lake of the Ozarks. At Camdenton Farm and Garden, we sell in bulk, up to 50-pound bags, or by the pound. Plus, for those who can't handle the weight of the large bags, we will go above and beyond by splitting the bags for you. Curious what types we carry? This is just the most popular types - but we are glad to order something if you aren’t finding what you’re looking for.


The Care & Keeping Of Your Birdfeeder

The hardest part about feeding birds at the Lake of the Ozarks is keeping your feeders clean. With any amount of time outside in the elements, your feeders are bound to get dirty. This isn't just about the appearance, though, dirty feeders can spread disease among our feathered friends. Here are a few things you can keep in mind as you clean up your feeder.

How Often Should I Clean My Feeder?
We would recommend cleaning your feeder at least in the fall and in the spring. But don’t be afraid to clean it more often as necessary.

Cool Hack: If you put a baffle at the top of the feeder, it is somewhat protected from moisture and will keep the seed drier. A drying agent such as Feeder Fresh can also help prevent build-up.

How Do I Clean My Feeders?
Manufacturers are making this job easier and easier, and some even allow for dishwasher cleaning! Of course, some feeders are too large for your dishwasher, so in this case, there is an alternative. You can use a bucket of soapy water, and a long brush that is designed for tubular feeders. Dilute two tablespoons of bleach per gallon of water, this will take care of mildew and mold build-up.


Start Feeding Your Birds

If you’re contemplating getting your first bird feeder and enjoying this fun hobby - Camdenton Farm and Garden would love to assist. Stop by and take a look at our selection, we would love to chat with you about what types would work best for you and your feathered friends. Happy Bird Feeding month! We hope you find some fun ways to celebrate.

FAQs About Livestock Feed

At Camdenton Farm and Garden, we provide high-quality livestock feed at the Lake of the Ozarks. We do this because it’s important to us that you have an easy to shop at, local store where you can buy everything you need for your Lake of the Ozarks farm. We carry many different brands and can feed animals as large as horses or as small as rabbits. If you have questions about livestock feed, or just want to know a bit more about what we carry, here is the low down!


Frequently Asked Questions About Livestock Feed


Q: What is the typical shelf life for livestock feed?
A: The type of feed will impact the shelf life. A textured feed (aka sweet feed) generally has the shortest shelf life. They have a higher moisture content, and this can make them more prone to mold issues. Pelleted feeds will have a longer shelf life, and extruded feeds have the longest shelf life. The biggest factor to consider is storage conditions. When feed is stored in a dry, cool place, they are generally good for up to 6 months from the date of manufacture.

Q: How can I tell how fresh my feed is?
A: The feed bags are marked with a code that will indicate what day it was produced on. We offer many different brands here at Camdenton Farm and Garden, all of which could have different coding systems. If you have a question about how the lot codes work for your feed, please give us a call or ask us next time you stop in to pick up your order.

Q: What is the difference between organic and non-GMO feed?
A: If a feed is labeled “organic” it must meet extremely specific requirements. Organic plants are required to be grown with natural fertilizers and without pesticides or hormones, along with other requirements.

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) have had their DNA altered, which can increase their resistance to herbicides and improve nutritional content. Non-GMO feed is made by grains that have not been genetically altered but may have been treated with pesticides.

The take away is that non-GMO fee is not necessarily organic, but the organic feed is always non-GMO.

Q: What are probiotics and prebiotics?
A: Probiotics are live microorganisms that are added to the feed. They enhance the healthy flora or bacteria within the gastrointestinal tract. This bacteria is considered “good” and can improve the intestinal balance of microbes while restricting the growth of the “bad” bacteria. Think of it like the live cultures that are found in yogurt.

Prebiotics are soluble fibers that encourage the growth of good bacteria in the stomach, but unlike probiotics, they are not bacteria.
