Smoky Valley Farm & Supply is your Livestock Show Supply Headquarters, but we didn’t start out that way. In fact, we started out as just Smoky Valley Farm, a family farm where we raise and show purebred Simmental cattle and enjoy our passion for horses. During our search for the right nutrition for our livestock and equine friends in 2011, we were lucky enough to have a friend recommend Rowe Nutrition feeds. Within a month our friends were asking us what we were doing differently with our animals, and as a result Smoky Valley Farm & Supply was born almost overnight. It didn’t take long before I discovered the best part of my job is sharing my knowledge with our customers.
Over the years I continued to cultivate my knowledge and passion for animal husbandry, which in turn I loved sharing with my customers. As my expertise grew our business expanded exponentially and we had to build a store front. Over the years our product offerings grew to include a vast inventory of Weaver Leather show supplies, many veterinary and farm supply products, and more feed brands including Purina and Buckeye Nutrition.
In the spring of 2019 we had the opportunity to sell our feed segment to our local Agway store so we could focus on our Livestock Show Supply business and our family. Since then new opportunities for our own young children to show have blossomed. Our son, Cody, is working hard and having fun showing his Simmental heifers, while our daughter, Lizzie, is enjoying learning how to ride horses.
When our local 4-H and FFA members come to us for assistance with their projects, we are here. The one thing my husband Randy and I enjoy most is watching our local 4-H and FFA members grow, learn and take pride in their accomplishments. Our summers are spent happily in the stands of the local fairs supporting youngsters as they show off all their hard work and well groomed livestock. Yes, I have to admit tears of joy fall each time those we cherish get that Grand Champion slap, or that Supreme Champion handshake.
Above all else, we’re thankful to have such loyal and wonderful customers who have made it possible for us to grow our business beyond the feed. We’re grateful to have the opportunity to create an innovative Show Supply business that offers the best customer service possible to our patrons, while having the time we need to be able to cultivate a love of animals and farming in our own children.
We know farming. We know the risks and the rewards, the heartbreaks and the moments of absolute joy that come with it. We hear your stories of how your heart was broken last night as you lost your favorite goat during kidding, or how that prize cow finally had that long awaited and beautiful healthy heifer calf yesterday. We understand it, we live it, we feel it, and we’re blessed that you, our customers, allow us to be a part of it all.
