About us

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

Durham Animal Feeds was established by Jack, Doreen, Peter & Lyn Hornsby. Durham Animal Feeds 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. Everybody did every job and that still applies to this day.

In November 2015 we created Durham Animal Feeds South (DAF South), our Southern distribution branch for all our Southern customers. We opened a store in Weston-super-Mare, enabling DAF to supply and deliver to the majority of the country. DAF South is also a family run business managed by Becky Palmer. Becky's husband and sons also play a major part in the running of DAF South, making Durham Animal Feeds a real family business. Both families work hard to ensure that they are at the forefront of the natural food industry, whilst maintaining the old fashioned principals of honesty and first class customer service that they have become famous for.

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

To ensure that customers get the best possible price and value, Durham Animal Feeds maintain simple clear packaging for all of their products, making them the most cost effective supplier in the market.
