3kg, 20Kg – 140kg: Red Squirrel Cobnuts

(2 customer reviews)


Red Squirrel Cobnut Mix / Squirrel Feed –  Update 07.02.24 – Dispatching 2023 Husked and Dehusked

We recommend dehusked as husked are less attractive this time of year although the squirrels do not mind. Husked may need airing on arrival as they are kept cold for larger kernels but this means the husk can be damp. 

Roughway Farm has supplied cobnuts for Red Squirrel conservation projects across the UK for over 50 years. From Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands our cobs have been enjoyed by our native squirrels.

Our red squirrel cobnuts are mixed cobnut varieties that are suited for squirrel consumption. Our squirrel nuts vary in terms of size and appearance. Our squirrel nuts are all grown in Kent and are certainly enjoyed by the squirrels!

We currently sell a range of weights from smaller packets for home use in gardens to larger bulk quantities in 20kg boxes. Please note we now place all sack orders in boxes due to a request from our courier. If you want a larger order please email and we are happy to organise.

Our Squirrel Cobnuts are harvested between September and October each year.

Please keep in mind that our cobs are kept cool to keep the kernels in good condition. This means that husked nuts in particular can be a little damp late season (Late Nov- March) and so should be allowed to air on arrival. The dehusked nuts by December and into the new year are generally drier and are preferred by some customers for handling and appearance. The squirrels however are happy with both.

If you want British sourced Squirrel food then we recommend buying from Roughway.


This product is not extensively sorted to keep costs low. These nuts are not recommended for human consumption due to storage and the ranging quality and size.

For orders of over 140kg we recommend emailing store@roughwayfarm.co.uk

    I’ve had two batches of squirrel nuts and my red squirrels love them. It is the food of choice over anything else I put out for them. I definitely recommend them.

    Mum has a cobnut tree in her garden but the squirrels strip it before she can rescue any for me – so these are perfect. And even better now they are dehusked as there’s less mess in the garden! My squirrels go made for them, they knock at the window in the morning if I haven’t put any out, and then take them away to the neighbours gardens to hide in their plant pots. I might not be popular with the neighbours, but the squirrels love me.
