Granby store offers options for pets, livestock
March 10, 2015
Just a little east of Granby on County Road 60, not far from where the pavement ends, is the Old Time Feed N' Things store.
Old Time Feed N' Things, owned by Bud and Bev Tillotson, sells animal feed and tack. They have a wide selection of products to choose from and carry feed for all your furry, and not so furry, friends.
Christy Horn, Old Time Feed N' Things Store Manager said, "Our feed goes from guinea pigs all the way up to cattle. We have feed for dogs, cats, pigs, horses sheep, goats."
The store also carries different kinds of tack ranging from standard horse stable equipment to bird feeders and watering systems to grooming equipment for various types of animals. They also sell fencing equipment if you have any repair work that needs done to keep your livestock at home.
Horn said Old Time Feed N' Things is doing well. "We are slowly growing," said Horn. The business started in May 2014.
Owners Bud and Bev built a brand new building to house the store; work on that project was completed last summer. The business moved into it's new location in July 2014. They recently completed work on an unattached storage building to hold more feed and fencing equipment.
Most of the business Old Time Feed N' Things does is through smaller scale "backyard farmers."
"I didn't realize how many people have just a few chickens in their backyard. I go through more chicken feed than most other stuff," said Horn. Horn also said that from May through August the business stays busy keeping up with orders for 4-H kids. "There is a big market for them during the season," she said.
Horn explained she has a large shipment of baby chicks and ducks and other similar birds coming at the end of April for her 4-H customers.
Old Time Feed N' Things is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. The store is closed on Sundays. You can reach them at 970-887-3235.
