Bellingham's Scratch and Peck receives organic certification


BELLINGHAM - Scratch and Peck Feeds recently received national certification as an organic manufacturer.

The company, which provides animal feed for farmers, received the certification from the U.S. Department of Agriculture this summer. A year ago Scratch and Peck was verified for not having genetically modified organisms in the feed.

"Our work in this movement is to gather ingredients from local farms, make them into new products that feed animals in a healthy way and nurture people's nostalgic connection to the land," said owner Diana Ambauen-Meade in a news release.
