This is a trough-style animal feeder designed with deer in mind, but it can be used for any medium to large animal. It is very easy to assemble, with no screws or nails. There are no metal parts of any kind on the trough. The bottom of the trough is removable, making it very simple to clean. Because of it’s attractive design, you will want to also use it as a planter for an herb or flower garden. Made from white pine, it will last for years. Wholly made in the USA.
