Hidden Gem: Greenfield Store

If you travel down US 40,

to Greenfield, the heart of Hancock County, Indiana,

just south west of the town square where the courthouse sits,

you’ll find one of Harvest Land’s best kept secrets:

Our Greenfield Store.

Located at 230 W. Osage Street, the Greenfield Store has a boundless selection of home, garden and farm supplies, livestock must-haves and even unique gifts for anyone on your list. This week we want to give you a glimpse into everything (well, not everything…we didn’t have time to photograph the impressive feed selection, or the variety of mulches available for all your spring needs) available at our Greenfield Store.

See something you like? Harvest Land will get it to your local ag center for fast and convenient pick up!

Premium grass seed, Handy (and tacky!) straw to keep the seed in place, lawn starter fertilizer, weed killers to rid your yard and garden of even the toughest ones and a large variety of garden fertilizers.

And my personal favorite: Wilt Stop. This stuff basically brings your plants back to health when your thumb ins’t so green.

Calling all stock show parents and 4-Hers! The Greenfield Store has nylon halters and neck ropes, show sticks, pipes, adhesive, paint, curry combs, brushes, soaps and washes, sheep blankets, tags, and a huge selection of Sullivan Supplies and Weaver Leather Livestock products.

Of course, we wouldn’t leave out the family favorite. We have pet supplies, toys, dishes, feeders, medication, treatments, hygiene products and more.

Plus pigs’ ears and cow hooves – if they’re into that sort of thing.

We thought about highlighting the horse supplies with the rest of the livestock stuff, but there are certain rules against grouping the two together.

Fence supplies, grooming supplies and washes, fly spray, nutrition, salt and mineral: The Greenfield Store is your one-stop shop for all things equine.

We’re proud to carry a full portfolio of CountryMark oils, greases and lubricants. Stop outside and fill up your tank at our fuel station while you’re here and treat your vehicle to premium CountryMark fuels.

The store carries Lindner United, VitaFerm, Tribute, Purina, Kalmbach and more products to ensure your livestock have what they need to get started, reproduce, grow and perform. Can’t find what you need? Tell Cathy and she’ll get it ordered for you.

(MADE IN THE USA) Corinthian Bells wind chimes, absolutely unique bird houses and feeders, shatterproof gazing balls and enough bird feed to fill a smorgasbord: We have it. Also, see the little red barn bird feeder, above? It is squirrel proof. You could make an afternoon of watching squirrels fail at robbing the roost.

Let’s talk about how awesome these Surreal birch planters are. They’re not real wood! You don’t have to cut down a tree to get this kind of style around your yard! These creative planters are a favorite and we hope you come check them out as you prepare for spring sprucing.

Further details, pricing and more supplies are available by calling the store at 317.462.5551. Again, you don’t have to step foot in the door to take advantage of all the Greenfield Store has to offer – we’ll get it to you!

Oh, and before you leave, it might be a good idea to run any upcoming birthdays through your head. You’re welcome.

Christmas Morning: The Original Lesson in Patience

Farm kids can learn patience many different ways: soggy planting seasons, bad fences, or rogue hydraulic hoses.

But patience may be an even earlier lesson for those with livestock: halter breaking calves, meticulous diets for lambs or a holstein with an annoying switch.

However, perhaps the greatest lesson in patience comes the morning of December 25th.

It is on Christmas morning that livestock kids have to march past the twinkling glory of the the Christmas tree, surrounded by shiny wrapped gifts which are seeping with enough curiosity to kill a cat. They have to contain the anticipation and excitement, moving past it to find their Carhartts on their way to the bitter cold to tend stock.

Livestock kids have to take care of the cattle, hogs, sheep, horses or dogs, before they enjoy Christmas morning for themselves. They’ll pay close attention while feeding, watering and bedding all species at the quickest pace known to mankind.

The original lesson in patience comes early for farm kids who bypass the presents to take care of the livestock, then return to the house to open new gloves, a show stick and work boots under the tree. And they love it, all the same.
