Family Farm & Home Store

Postby Bill Hudson » Sun Mar 26, 2017 6:51 pm

We are to soon get a Family Farm and Home store. Is this another version of Tractor Supply? Looks like Michigan is covered with them.

Bill, I here they are like TSC, more on the Family and Home side than they are on the Farm. We have one opening soon very near our TSC. Might be a little interesting. I would rather see Rural King, but I will wait to pass judgement on the new store after I get to visit.

This one will be right across the road from a TSC that opened less than three years ago.

I hit my local FF&H just about every week. They are a lot like Tractor Supply.

A Big R store recently opened in Lima, OH. My wife stopped in there last week-end and said that she felt like she was walking into our near-by Rural King. I need to find an excuse to go check it out! I'm not familiar with Family Farm & Home.

I think they are the survivor of what used to be Farm & Fleet. We used to have a Farm & Fleet in Piqua years ago. It was my go to store back then as TSC was not nearly as close (Lima). We used to go up to Coldwater, Michigan for a week each summer and their Farm & Fleet morphed into a Family Farm & Home 15-20 years ago. Piqua now has a Family Farm & Home and it seems identical. They do have a little room off to the side of the store where they stock a little hay and straw in small bales for the horse and goat people.

Yes, Quality Farm and Fleet out of Muskegon, MI went under back in 2001. TSC bought up a bunch of their closed stores. Family Farm & Home was started by a former president of Quality Farm and Fleet. http://www.heraldpalladium.com/localnews/new-life-for-closed-stores-in-sw-michigan/article_0d483e13-f78b-5b12-9f43-57a7a101f714.html

The Family Farm & Home in my hometown was a Quality Farm & Fleet in the late 1980's, then became a Fisher's Big Wheel for a few years, then Pamida for about 12 years, and now Family Farm & Home.
