Breeding Facility

breathing life into reptiles...

Most people associate breeding programmes at Monkfield Nutrition with snakes, lizards and other reptiles but there are also dozens of rooms dedicated to livefood. Breeding your own brings with it a sense of comfort and security with the knowledge that you are in control every step of the way.

You don't have to worry about where it has come from, you know.

You don't have to worry about whether it has been looked after properly, it has.

Animal Rooms

Set up in 1993 our captive breeding programme is extremely well established.

In our purpose built facility, we breed all the popular reptile species stocked by pet shops including Bearded Dragons, Leopard and Crested Geckos, Chameleons, Corn, King and Milk Snakes and Royal Pythons. Also for the first time this year we have succesfully bred our very own Frilled Dragons!

All animals are shipped in good health and feeding well. We endeavour to accommodate specific requests but please note that we cannot always guarantee the gender of a reptile.

If you have any reptile or reptile-related questions, no matter how small, we are always happy to help.

Rodent Farm

In 2001, we began breeding rodents in response to market shortages and set up a rodent farm in Eastern Europe. Over the past ten years, the growth has exceeded all our expectations, which has led to our farm being the largest of its kind in Europe.

Continual investment in the rodent farm has led us to believe that we now produce the best quality frozen rodents sold in the UK today

Rodents are raised on high quality diets and subject to regular health checks.

All frozen foods are humanely euthanized, according to a set of government-dictated guidelines, accurately graded, bagged or boxed and blast frozen.

We are licensed and regularly inspected by DEFRA for distribution to the trade.

Insect Rooms

Across the farm our insect rooms are divided up by insect type and by size enabling us to cater for a wide variety of reptiles and different mouth sizes!

All our live food is picked, packed and despatched on the same day to ensure it is as fresh as possible.

Crickets and locusts are sensitive creatures that are affected by the weather (aren't we all!) and so we continually monitor for any change in conditions to enable us to pack appropriately for despatch.
