Owners Jane & Kevin Guldin

Started in the 1950’s, this location has been the center for agriculture for more than 60 years. We are happy to continue that great tradition and to be a vital part of this growing community.

Our focus is on education. Many people are interested in raising their own livestock and food, but have questions along the way. We have seminars throughout the year that focus on different species of animals allowing each person to become more knowledgeable on the animals of which they are interested. Our goal is to help each person be successful with whatever they are passionate about, whether raising livestock, gardening or having a beautiful lawn. Each one of our staff has animals ourselves or has a garden, so we have first-hand knowledge of what it takes to be successful. Kevin Guldin, our President, is an Animal Nutritionist. He has over 30 year of experience in the feed industry, as well as, vast knowledge in farming techniques and practices. We encourage any questions that you may have and we enjoy spending time answering them.

We are primarily a Purina dealership. We could have gone with any feed company, but we chose Purina because their dedication to animal nutritional research is unmatched by any other feed company.

We carry feed for any animal. From the farm animals, such as horses and cows, to the exotic animals like alpacas and wallabys, we have a feed for them. Thanks to our partnership with Mazuri, we have access to the same feeds that the zoo’s around the country trust and use to feed their animals.

We look forward to assisting you with your future agricultural endeavors.
