Mesa Feed & Farm Supply, established by Dean White and
Robert Esplin, began at 5th and South Avenue, offering livestock
feeds to western slope farmers and ranchers.
A few years later, Dean White and Richard Pierle moved
the business to a larger location on South 7th Street to expand
operations. A devastating fire occurred April 9, 1974 which
resulted in the owners shifting their focus to manufacturing when
they rebuilt. They produced a complete line of livestock feeds which
sold in several states.
In 1996, while still manufacturing dog food, the business’
focus became the manufacturing of fish food. This line was later
transferred to Integral Fish Foods which operated out of the same
location.
At the same time, Mesa Feed Mart became a retail
business distributing Purina, Manna Pro feeds, among others.
Richard Pierle, and his wife, Judy operated the business for the
next 13 years.
In 2013, the property at South 7th Street was sold, and
Mesa Feed Mart moved to it’s current location at 520 S. 9th
Street. In January 2016, current employees Kathy Singer and
her business partner purchased the business with the vision to
continue the local, small town feel of the business with a continued
commitment to friendly, customer service.
The retail store, in addition to livestock feed, has expanded
to be the only store on the Western Slope to sell their own line of
bird seed, over 215 varieties of vegetable, flower, and grass seed
mixes in bulk as well as offering special order mixes. Meat-based
dog and cat foods, along with small, exotic pet food are available.
Chicks and poultry are by special order so that customers may
choose what type of breeds they want in their flock.
There is a special section in the store that offers handmade lotions, soaps and gift items made by local artists. They even
have clothes, leashes and collars for that special furry friend.
In the near future, the store will be offering e-commerce
as part of their website, where customers may order vegetable,
flower seed and small gift items. The owners hope that online
ordering will be a great asset to their social media presence on
Facebook. Come down soon and see all the items they have to offer.
