Wharton Feed & Supply, Inc. has been the Wharton community's dependable source for farm and ranch products and supplies for decades. Founded by Jim C. Locke in 1953, it was known as the Jim C. Locke Company. Mr. Locke started his business on the square in downtown Wharton, in the building currently occupied by the Wharton Journal Spectator.
The feed store moved to its current location at 1105 North Fulton in 1962 and changed the name to Wharton Feed and Supply. Frank Wendel managed the store until 1970 when he and his wife Helen purchased the business. During the Wendel's ownership there was a beauty parlor located in the building.
In 1978, Jimmy Martin and his partners, Doc Vineyard and Glen Tank White, purchased the building from Mr. Roten, who built the building in the 1950’s, and the business from Frank and Helen Wendel.
Timmy Barker came to work for MVW Inc., D.B.A. Wharton Feed & Supply and the owners James Martin & Robert Vineyard on January 1, 1980, and purchased Wharton Feed and Supply from James Martin in 1993. Timmy, Ellen, Johnny and Richard Schooler are the original employees, who keep the business thriving today.
Wharton Feed and Supply stocks pet foods, lawn and garden chemicals, garden and grass seed and a variety of other products.
