Welcome to Westwood Feed.com. I'm Don Da Costa and I've been in the business of selling pet food and animal supplies for over thirty years. Although I've been here a while, with this web site, I hope to let more of you know about our products. I am committed to only selling the best natural and organic food and treats for your pet. Whether you have a dog, cat, bird, gerbil, hamster, guinea pig, chicken, or chinchilla, I can provide you with the right diet for your little buddy.
One of my specialties is bird seed. I have a special No-Waste product that is not only nutritious, but leaves no mess on the ground. Be sure to also take a look at our bird feeders. Not only do we have the right feeder and food to attract the type of bird you desire, but some are also designed to keep those pesky squirrels from munching on the bird's seed.
I sure look forward to seeing or hearing from you. If you are outside of Bergen County, NJ and are interested in our products, please contact me.
The Westwood Feed store has been an animal feed store for over 120 years. The original store was built in 1884 and it was located across the street, right next to the train tracks. Its close proximity to the trains from New York City made it an ideal location. Although today the Pascack Valley Line only runs commuter trains, in the early part of the 20th century supply trains would stop right across the road to unload grain, seed and other supplies for the nearby farms. The Westwood area was quite rural at the time, so there were many turkey farms in the area. The Westwood Feed store also supplied feed for horses, chickens, and other livestock.
In 1915, the store moved across the street to one of the nearby buildings. Around 1930, Mr. Mariner took over the feed business and moved into the building where the store is presently located. About twenty years later, Danny Schlosberg, who worked for Mr. Mariner, took over the business and ran the store from 1950 until 1976.
The third owner was Don's father, the senior Don DaCosta who bought the Westwood Feed store as a family business. Don began working with his father in the late 1970's while pursuing a career in music. Today he runs the business full-time in addition to running a recording studio.
When you come to visit the store, be sure to take a moment to view some of the interesting antique tools and other historical items that are hung along the wall above the products. The Westwood Feed store reminds us of a quieter, perhaps gentler time when farming and raising livestock was the main industry in the Pascack Valley area.

The only place I have been able to find a real selection of quality Natural animal foods for my pets. The service is fantastic and they will even carry out the food for you if you need assistance. A great "old fashion way"...
