A Trip to the Feed Store

Hi, it’s Celia again!

We feed our goats and our chickens grain. We don’t have to, but we do. The hens lay better, and the goats give more milk if they get grain. They don’t need much, but they sure do look forward to it every morning.

We were running low, so we went to Powl’s Feed Store to pick up some more. They’ll deliver on Wednesdays if we order 500 pounds or more, but Mom didn’t think to get it. She’s been busy. Plus she’s forgetful since she's almost100.

Powl’s is a fun place to go because it is so DIFFERENT. It’s this old building that looks like it is out of the wild west. There is about 4” of moss growing on the porch roof.

They sell all kinds of feed which they grind up right there. They also sell veterinary medicine (which I hope I never need), muck boots (which I want), troughs, and other barnyard necessities.

But the oddest thing about Powl’s is they use feed sacks for curtains. When we asked if we could take a picture of them one of the men showed us a reusable grocery bag made of a feed sack, too, but I didn’t get a picture of that. I should have because I really want to make one.
