Our bird houses are locally sourced and handcrafted from Green Meadow Houses and Feeders in Shipshewana, Indiana. They are made from eco-friendly polywood sourced from recycled milk jugs. The screws and hinges are stainless steel. These beautiful, durable bird houses and feeders are made to last a life time. The best part? No maintenance. No painting, staining, sealing or waterproofing required. The polywood material the houses are made from makes a simple cleaning each season a snap. Just wash with soap and water and enjoy!
