Durham Animal Feeds

About Us…

Durham Animal Feeds (DAF) is a third generation family business, originally established in 1969 in County Durham.

Durham Animal Feeds (DAF) was established by Jack, Doreen, Peter & Lyn Hornsby. It was originally started to produce and supply raw food for the North East of England and grew a strong and reliable relationship with their customers. At the age of 17, Lee Hornsby joined the company and as with his grandparents and parents before him worked through the ranks doing everything from working on the production line to driving the heavy goods vehicles. Everybody did every job and that still applies to this day.

In November 2015 DAF created Durham Animal Feeds South, a distribution branch to supply our Southern based customers. We opened the distribution branch in Weston-Super-Mare which enabled Durham Animal Feeds to supply and deliver to most areas of the country. Durham Animal Feeds South is now managed by Sarah Hall who started as a driver. Following the DAF ethos she worked her way through the warehouse, into the retail shop, then progressing on through into administration in the office, finally taking charge of the whole of DAF South, making her the ideal candidate to communicate with customers, someone who has met and worked with them face to face just as Lee & Peter have, this ensures all the management at Durham Animal Feeds are knowledgeable yet accessible, a real intimate business. Everyone at DAF continues to work hard to ensure that they are at the forefront of the natural pet food industry, whilst maintaining the old-fashioned principals of honesty and first-class customer service that they have become famous for.

In February 2021 DAF Lowestoft was born, DAF Lowestoft was to take the pressure from DAF South by delivering all the South East based customers that DAF South were servicing, again early days yet but already we are seeing the sales of our raw food raising in the south east area.

DAF natural pet foods have been developed with nothing added and nothing taken away, working closely with the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), to ensure that all the products are of the highest possible standard and that all ingredients are ethically sourced.

To ensure that Durham Animal Feeds customers get the best possible price and value, simple clear, transparent, sealed and fully recyclable (where facilities allow) packaging is used for the products, DAF is not only a company which cares about the health and wellbeing of pets but is also conscientious about the environment.
