History: Billy and Kim Tripp have owned and operated Searcy Farm Supply for 23 years. The couple bought the business from the Taylor family, who had owned it since 1970.

Products and Services: Searcy Farm Supply offers a wide line of products for farmers and ranchers, be it for livestock, forge production or row crops, and have 11 employees ready to serve the needs of their customers. 

“We sell fertilizer, and we sell feed, chemicals, garden seeds, garden plants, bale wrap, nuts, bolts, plows and all farming supplies.”

Searcy Farm Supply offers livestock feed for all livestock species, including rabbits and chickens, with bagged selections from Hirsch. 

Searcy Farm Supply offers bulk fertilizer and a fleet of applicator buggies are available. 

Additionally, seed from DeKalb and D&PL and a good selection of herbicides and insecticides are available. Irrigation items can also be found at Searcy Farm Supply. 

Victor, Joy and Nutro dog foods are also in stock for the pet owner. 

Clothing is unavailable at Search Farm Supply, but customers can find a selection of Muck and LaCrosse boots. 

Hunters can also find food plot mixes and deer attractants. 

Some locally-produced items, such as fresh produce, honey and pecans, can also be found at the store, depending on the season. 

Because they are farmers themselves, Kim said they know what farmers need and want, and feel that is one of the reasons for their success over the last two decades. 

The Tripp family also operates Tripp Gin Company, which processes cotton, and Tripp Custom Picking. 

Future plans: The Tripps plan to continue to serve their customers, but there are no plans for expansion. 

“Things are working pretty good and keeping us busy like it is,” she said with a laugh.
