Martin Farm & Ranch Supply, Inc. is a family owned and operated business.
Al Martin started Martin Farm & Ranch Supply, Inc. in May of 1955 in a (then) small south Texas town, Edinburg. He started selling TEXO Feeds out of his first location on East Harriman Dr. (now University Dr.). After a couple years his dreams came true, when he bought an old lumber yard and moved his store to 614 E. Harriman.
In 1961, he became a Purina Dealer and remained in that location until November of 1977. Then his banker (Nathan Winters) convinced him to build a new store on Monte Cristo Rd and Business 281. The new store was state-of-the-art with 2400 sq. ft. of retail area and a 5000 sq. ft. warehouse. After Al’s death in 2007, his son Doug Martin, who had been with him since college, decided to expand and remodel the business.
Today, the business is spread out over 6 acres of land and encompasses 10,000 sq. ft. of retail area along with a new feed warehouse and hay barns. Selling animal feeds is still our core business, followed closely by livestock fencing. Along with animal health products, the store has added: lawn & garden items, gift items, rustic furniture and even camo-clothing.
And, throughout the past 50 plus years, we’ve still kept it in the family. Our team is lead by Doug Martin, son of Al Martin, and Doug’s son, Greg Martin. Three generations of Martins’ expertise is what we offer our customers, plus our entire team! From sales staff to cashiers, Martin’s Farm & Ranch Supply can help you with your ranching solutions.
Come by the store and see for yourself. It’s the new Martin Farm & Ranch! And remember… just look for the horse.
