About us

Richard Denchfield

Richard Denchfield is the founder of Hidden Creek Artisans, maker of Edible Birdhouses. In 2010 Richard came across an edible birdhouse at a craft show and was taken with it. He thought it was a wonderful idea to bring them home to Gaithersburg, MD and sell them locally. In January, 2012 he began designing and creating the birdhouses himself. Today, his artisan birdhouses are handmade in the US using non-toxic, edible glue and the highest quality bird seed. The company has grown substantially but Richard is still a hands on owner whose birdhouses are in backyards and gardens throughout the United States.

The Birds

Our company’s founder, Richard, designs Edible Birdhouses with a variety of seeds in order to attract a spectrum of birds for your to enjoy. You may see Cardinals, Wrens, Chickadees, Nuthatches, Finches, Doves, Starlings, Sparrows, Buntings, Gold Finches, and Song Birds. Once the birds have eaten the seed from the exterior of the birdhouse, it can be reseeded and used again.
