The Hitching Post Farm Supplies And Sales To Open Feb. 1

By James B. Bartle
A new business venture by two local families will bring a new feed store, and much more, to the local area, as Bink and Raelyn Blankenship and Shane and Debra Huskey open up The Hitching Post, at 86 Landon Rd., visible from westbound I-44.
The new business will feature feed, bulk feed, fertilizer and lime products along with a line of Purina feed products. The business will also be expanding into other areas, as they get the business open and move forward.
Why open this type of business?
“We’ve been looking into another market to get into business with, as we already own and operate Binks Excavating, and we met with Shane and Debra who have wanted to open a feed store for the last seven years,” said Blankenship. “We were able to partner up and now we’re getting close to opening this new business venture.”
“This has always been something I’ve wanted to get into and now we are doing it,” said Shane Huskey.
Presently, the new building for The Hitching Post is under construction and is going to be 2,400 sq. ft., with additional expansions of the building and other areas in the near future.
Blankenship stated that people will find a number of other items in the store and future plans are to bring in a number of other farming items, but that will be released at a later date.
The business is scheduled to open on Feb. 1, with hours still being determined, but expected to be 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and the business can be reached at 573-468-FEED or 573-468-3333.
