R & J Feed And Farm Supply Relocates In Jackson, Tenn. by Tom Burriss R & J Feed and Farm Supply has changed locations in Jackson, Tenn. after being in the same building for nearly 22 years. "If we were going to keep up, we needed to do something different," says Linda Stanford, co-owner, with her husband Jimmy, who originally opened their store on 240 Commerce in Jackson. On May 15, they opened their doors after relocating to 1040 S. Highland St. in Jackson, Tenn. "We were looking at spending a lot of money to renovate," says daughter and store manager Ginger Kemp of the previous store, "or we could find another place." "Now we have a much better location and people who pass by, stop in. That would never happen at the other store." It was nearly four months before they had their re-grand opening and ribbon cutting, on September 15. Although size never changed, the showroom area is considerably larger in order to handle the wide range of products and they have everything. "I like to call it a country store," says Linda. "It is exactly what is on the sign," says assistant store manager Keith Ballard, "farm supply." Feed for horses, cows and critters, and supplies to fill their every need. They are distributors for Purina, Prime Quality and Nutrena. "My dad is a farmer," explains Ginger, who has her ag-business degree from UT Martin, "and we supply some of our own feed." Including the wheat straw, hay, and whole corn. Feed can be purchased with a $.25 per bag discount on ten, and $.50 per bag on the ton. "And you can pick it up as you go. You can prepay for a ton and then pick it up as you need it." They offer everything to tack your horse, including Tex Tan saddles. They take care of the human end too. Hardware, fencing, pluming, jeans, boots, a full line of John Deere toys and tractors, and Montana Silversmith jewelry are always in stock. You can even buy locally made sausage herbs and home grown peanuts, in three different varieties. There is a wide array of outdoor equipment too. Camoflauge, boots, traps and tarps. There are quite a few things for the garden as well. Seed and fertilizers, and with the onset of fall, bulbs are priced to sell. With the new location they have the space and facility to host meetings as well. On a regular basis they have been hosting informative meetings and agriculture groups. Store hours are 7am to 6pm, Monday through Friday, Saturdays, 7am to 4pm. Call Ginger, Linda, and Keith at (731) 427-3531 or (731) 427-3548
