Published by

Get Your Farm Fix

Family Center Farm and Home is a farmer’s paradise. With everything from pet supplies to saddles to power equipment, their stock is made up of only the highest-quality items from the best brands. Their locations are based in Harrisonville, St. Joseph, and Rolla, and Paola, so you have access to their products no matter where you live in the KS/MO area. They call themselves the ‘everything store’ because their stock is so diverse. The staff is knowledgeable about the products they are selling and country life in general. If you need to talk to someone who can understand your farm and home issues and propose a solution, this is the place to go. Family Center Farm and Home has been servicing the KS/MO area for the last fifty years, making their brand a household name among all country enthusiasts. Their largest location and corporate office is located in the Mill-Walk Mall in Harrisonville, but each location boasts the same trusted brands and expert employees.

Community Engagement

Family Center Farm and Home also hosts community events and fund raisers to bring together like-minded people who share an enthusiasm for farm life. Last year’s annual St. Jude Trail Ride raised over $9,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. At OnTarget, we love helping brands that love helping the community.

Services and Parts

On top of selling products, the Family Center also offers services and parts. When you purchase power equipment from Family Center, you have access to their parts department, service department, and certified technicians. As long as you have the machine, they offer maintenance services to keep it performing at a satisfactory level. Prices are reasonable, so your power equipment doesn’t end up costly twice what you paid for it.

Saddles

The saddles for sale come from brands that any equestrian enthusiast will recognize, including Martin, Reinsman, and Double J Saddlery. Whether you just need a saddle for trail rides or team roping, there are plenty of options to choose from. They have horse tack and supplies as well. Choosing the right saddle is important because a saddle that doesn’t fit right will cause discomfort for the horse and the rider. The width of the gullet is one of the most important factors when picking a saddle—their saddle stock is organized by brand gullet width to make shopping easy.

Farm and Ranch

As a general farm and ranch category, they also carry animal feed, protein tubs, implements, feeders and hay. The brands include Purina, Ranger Gate Company, and Senior. Purina is a trusted brand in the pet supply world, with over eighty years in operation. They promote safety, pet welfare, nutrition and sustainability to make your animal’s life happy and healthy.

Fencing

The Family Center carries fences, a product that you can’t find just anywhere. These fencing options include bow gates and come from Priefert, a brand that’s been endorsed by the best equine and rodeo organizations in America. Their motto ‘tough enough for cattle, safe enough for horses’ makes them optimal for crowding and ride-thru applications. Every gate comes with a power coat finish, UV inhibitors, and a gate hardware package (with chain latch and lag bolts).

Apparel

If you’re someone who likes to incorporate farm and country inspiration into their apparel, Family Center Farm and Home is the place for you. No matter your age or gender, they have the apparel that will fit your lifestyle needs and sense of style. Brands include Under Armour and Wrangler. Wrangler has been around since 1987, and has official endorsement from the Pro Rodeo Cowboy Association. They focus on the theme of ‘enduring American freedom’ and embody this in their policies by offering a one-year warranty for defects. The apparel brands stocked by Family Center embody the values of their customer base.

Boots

One of the Family Center’s best sellers is their selection of boots. Whether you’re looking for something sturdy or a pair of stylish cowgirl boots that you can wear with a cute dress, you’ll find it here. Since boots are pricier items, it’s important to choose a pair that fits well (for kids, a pair that they can grow into) and that will work well with any outfit. They stock boots with embroidery, laces and intricate designs, as well as several colors. In terms of brands, the Justin Boot Company has been around since 1879 and employs skilled boot-makers to create boots that you can take pride in. On top of the finest leather, they also provide technology like the J-Flex Comfort System and Grip-on Demand feature. If you’re someone who spends a lot of time out in the mud, a water resistant pair of boots might be a good choice for you. However, if you’re going to be riding a lot, a slip resistant pair would be a good investment. From gypsy boots to equestrian style boots, Family Center Farm and Home has the pair that will fit your needs just right.

Pet Supplies

If you need pet supplies that will keep your pet healthy and happy, look no further than the Family Center. For a grain-free formula that has antioxidants, omega fatty acids, and vitamins, Diamond is the brand for you. For a family-owned and operated business that caters to the health-conscious customer, Chicken Soup is a great option. They use real ingredients without any preservatives or food coloring. On top of offering pet food, they also have pet beds that come in several sizes and styles. You can even get a KU Jayhawks bed for your dog!

Power Equipment

If you’d like power equipment that you can count on to last for the long haul, browse Family Center’s selection of mowers, weed whackers, etc. With quality power equipment, you can spend more time doing the stuff you actually enjoy doing instead of wasting several hours on maintaining your lawn.  They carry STIHL products, including blowers, trimmers, brush cutters, and multi-task tools. They’re number one in terms of chain saw sales, and have the reputation to back up any purchase. In addition, the Family Center stocks Ferris and Honda equipment. Honda focuses on the fuel efficiency and environmental impact of their equipment, so you can purchase their equipment with a clear conscious.

Bird and Wildlife

If you’re looking for items related to bird and wildlife care, you can find all your supplies at the Family Center. They carry several types of seed, suet and seed bars to excite all the feathered friends in your neighborhood. Areas that have bird feeders were found to have a higher survival rates for the birds. A bird feeder not only improves the health of the wildlife around you, but also provides a great sight in the morning. Depending on the type of food you choose and the type of bird feeder you get, you’ll attract different types of birds. The Family Center stocks Wild Delight bird feed. This company offers helpful tips on where to place your bird feed and what time of year to set up if you want to attract certain birds.

Animal Health

If you’re a farmer, you have more animals to take care of than just cats and dogs. The Family Center offers a complete lineup of animal health products, including parasite control medication and ointments for your horse’s joints. In addition to medications, preventative treatments are also available. Cough free powder that’s 100% natural and red cell liquid supplements come from Farnam. If you have a new lamb or kid, they stock kid paste that can be used to protect kids from viruses and scours.

Lawn and Garden

If you have a lawn and garden that you like to keep properly maintained, Family Center’s supply can help you out. Weed killer, stump remover, and grass grower prevent unwanted insects and ensure your backyard doesn’t look like a jungle. Gordon is the brand of choice, with over 40 proven products that will make your lawn care easier than ever. Their Trimec line takes care of anything form Chicory to Creeping Charlie to Speedwell. If you’re looking to start a new garden or rejuvenate your dying lawn, their stock of grass seed and plant growth should be your go-to item. Depending on the coarseness of the grass you’re trying to achieve, you can consult an employee on which type to go with. They also stock brands that are drought resistant and can more easily tolerate heat.

And More…

In addition to these product categories, they also carry toys, hardware, housewares, and Amish-made products. This really is a catch-all store. If you need pillows, frames, jams, coloring books, drills, or anti-freeze products, you can find all these things at the Family Center. Unlike other superstores, like Walmart, the Family Center is dedicated to farm life equipment and living. How many other places out there sell saddles and stump removal all in the same place?

The Family Center is a company that truly values their customers and the products they offer. We want to let everyone out there know just how honest and unique this store is. On top of friendly customer service, their Harrisonville location also has LIVE CHICKENS to entertain the little ones. Bring your kids in and get some much-needed lawn care equipment, or browse the apparel section to find the perfect new outfit.
