“About Us” reflects upon an 11-year career in corporate America, 1,400 miles from home. A career that could be portrayed in a well-written novel; i.e., Opportunity, World-wide Travel, etc…would be chapters of their own. This novel would also need to reflect the yearnings of a woman who, although educated toward and successful in this corporate arena, had a heart that was elsewhere. To be specific, a) she could not stifle her desire to create something that she could call her own and b) family was an important component of her life. However, it was two fateful events that would eventually cause her to realize the urgency for making a career change: 1) The catastrophe of September 11, 2001 reinforced the importance of family and a desire to be closer to home and 2) The elimination of her division and ultimate bankruptcy of her former employer (Enron). These then, served as the impetus for this young woman to ” follow her bliss” and return home to create a business of her own!

So the whole idea behind buying the feed store was actually my dad’s, lol…He has always wanted to own a feed store and with all of the ventures that Jason and I have started, we thought it probably was a good idea, it gives us a bigger platform from which to sell our products. That is when the idea began to grow from having just a Feed Store to adding in local products and specialty items. We wanted to have a place in our community where local vendors could sell their products, like us, on a bigger scale. We believe that Covid and the pandemic has changed the way people shop. More people want to know where their products are coming from, and they want to support local farmers & makers and shop local businesses. That is essentially what made us adapt the old-school vision of a Feed Store into Green Valley Country Store. We want a place where locals can come buy the seed, feed, and fertilizer that grows the corn and hay that feeds the cows and chickens that end up on your table.
