LOCAL FOCUS: Chickasaw Farm Services
A hometown business that has been servings its customers for generations, Chickasaw Farm Services has a history and tradition of providing quality products for local farmers and friends.
“Farmers are our main customers and they buy our bulk items,” said Carolyn Ware. “But we also have those customers who have a home and yard and maybe a few animals. We work just as hard to help them, too.”
And Chickasaw Farm Services has more than 50 years of helping local folks with their crops, their lawn, their cattle and their pets.
“My husband’s parents established the business about 1954 and I started working here in 1975,” said Ware. “Most of the people down here have been with us for a number of years. They know this business and they know their customers.”
Chickasaw Farm Services has always been a family business.
“We try to treat our customers like family, too,” Ware added. “Every customer is very important to a small business like us.”
Chickasaw Farm Services sells bulk fertilizer and also fertilizer by the bag. Pioneer corn seed and other high quality seed for soybean and hay fields can be purchased at the store just off Highway 8 in Houston.
The business can blend fertilizer to give farmers that perfect match of chemicals that help plants reach their peak.
The company also works with the local homeowner to find the herbicide, pesticide or fertilizer they need for their yard or garden. Big garden or small yard, Chickasaw Farm Services has the experience and knowledge to help you select the right seed or variety of plant for local soils and climate.
The store has a wide selection of fencing materials, cattle supplements and tack. They also offer food and grooming supplies for horses, dogs and show livestock.
“One of the things people don’t realize we sell is hunting supplies, deer feeders, deer stands and deer corn,” said Ware. “We also offer a pretty good line of hunting boots and waterproof farm boots.”
Ware said Chickasaw Farm Services always makes a point to help customers find what they are looking for.
“If we don’t have it we can usually get it,” said Ware. “We are local people who make it our business to serve people in this community.”
