It's National Peanut Butter Day! January 24th is the day to eat a spoonful (or whole jar) of the tasty food spread we all know as peanut butter. It has been enjoyed by people commercially since the 19th century, but humans aren't the only species that love this delectable treat! Birds also have a thing for peanut butter. Birds love our Pine Tree Farms Peanut Butter Suet! Peanut butter is not only nutritional, but also packed full of energy for the birds. These peanut butter suet cakes will fit into any of our JCs Wildlife Suet Feeders! The birds love the tasty protein because it helps them fuel up especially in the cold winter months.
