Local Feed and Seed Sources - 2012
I have to say that I really liked the fact that they had so many different seeds - four kinds of squash, two kinds of radishes, two kinds of lettuce, etc. I was off the other day and had plans to go to Red Top Feed to get chicken supplies - layer feed, scratch feed, bedding - and while I was there I decided to ask about spinach seeds. They don't have their seed inventory on display, so I never thought to buy it there. They had it, and probably everything else that the other feed store had, but since it wasn't on display, I didn't think about it.
I still like Red Top Feed and will continue to go there for my usual supplied, but I may call before making a seed-buying trip. That goes for any of them. Since buying seeds recently, it doesn't look like I will need to go for a long time. If you have read previous posts I mentioned a couple of other places, one of them was Tractor Supply. I have to say that I don't think I've been there since I bought the fencing I used to make my trellises. Not to say anyone shouldn't shop there, but I think I prefer going to a locally-owned business, and I don't think TS has the hay and seeds that Red Top or Dorchester has.
