• Owner: David Evans
• Location: Green Forest, Ark.
History: Evans Feed Store and More began in 1947, and is a four-generation family business.
Owner David Evans said his great-grandparents, Roy and Emma Humbard, and grandparents, John and Noreen Evans, started the store, which initially opened in Oak Grove, Ark., but moved to Green Forest, Ark. His parents, Bill and Carlyn Evans, took over in 1972. David went to work with his parents in 1989, then became the owner in 1993.
Products and Services: As the name indicates, Evans Feed Store and More has a broad line of products for farmers and ranchers. Customers can find bagged feed and fertilizers, custom ration balancing and mixing, pesticides and herbicides, fly control products, poultry and dairy supplies, in addition to livestock handling and feeding equipment, and minerals and supplements.
“Right now, our biggest sellers are our mineral tubs because the grass is getting dryer, and we also sell a lot of fall pasture seed,” David said.
Delivery is available for bulk feed, and Evans Feed Store carries health items for cattle, sheep, goats, swine and horses.
Business Philosophy: After more than 70 years in business, the Evans family has found the best way to serve their customers is to provide them with the products and items they need.
“If we don’t have it, we try to get it,” David said.
Future: David said he plans to continue to the family business for many years to come, carrying on with the family tradition.
