Odom's Feed Store

Our feed store at Cartwright Grove is a working replica of the old time feed store. The interior is made from wood & metal that took Hugh & Jill the task to tear three different barns down to acquire. The barn interior roof metal was removed from a barn of the Carl Jones family. The 70 year old ship-lap chair rail lumber came from the late Dot & Tiny Townsend barn that was given to Cartwrigh Grove.

Hugh & Jill worked many weeks removing it from the barn. Complete with weigh scales, a cash register and old metal feed signs, Odom's Feed Store is one of several favorites at Cartwrigh Grove. Many of the items in the feed store were items previously displayed & used in the old Folsomdale Milling in north Graves County before it was torn down. These items were donated by the Loy David Wilson Family.

The feed store is sponsored by Odom Livestock Supply. The Odom's began their business when a major feed supplier shut down after many years of serving livestock producers. Thinking this was the time to start a business with Joe's 17 years of experience, Joe & Cindy Odom rented a warehouse space in Mayfield and opened a feed store.

As the business grew, the couple purchased property on U. S. 45 South in 1993. They cleared a briar patch and built a 60' x 120' metal building starting out by selling pre-bagged feed. In that time, they decided to build their business by mixing feed themselves and selling in bulk to their bigger customers. Today, thirty years later, Odoms Livestock Supply carries an expanded line of animal health products and custom blended feeds.
