The "fastest" way would probably take exit 11 and go around the bypass until you hit the big intersection where you would turn left on HWY 48/13. Go a couple of miles until you cross the Cumberland River and we will be on your left! Hope to see you soon.

Well I found myself within 30 miles of the Diamond H Farm & Feed Store today so I decide to take a little detour and visit Brian for an hour or so. Every time we tried to sit down and discuss his product line an actual paying customer would call his phone or walk in the front door looking for assistance. I'd say he and his son have a good thing going and they should do exceptional well.

I urge all you CT members in south central Kentucky and northern middle TN to stop by and check things out.

Oh, and that 72" Dixie Chopper is one heck of a mowing machine.

I wish I lived even remotely close to or had relatives nearby the feed store so I could go visit it. I get sick of Tractor Supply, Orscheln's, not having what I need and the salespeople not having much knowledge. That's where I try to buy as much as I can local at the independently owned stores. You know that TN Cattle Man will carry good products and have what you are looking for where he has been and still is a rancher presumably most all his life. Moreover he'll understand your operation and what he can do to help your operation product and equipment wise cuz he's been there himself. And to me that makes for one heck of a store! Best of luck Brian, I don't think you'll have any trouble with your background and sounds like also great product line!

Thanks for the kind words Larry! It was a pleasure sitting down with you today... I look forward to the day when we can just meet at the farm and have a social visit without all the distractions.

What kind of pocket knives do you carry? A few Moore Maker knives are on my shopping list.

Yeah work is like that especially with a well run business, a little chaotic, that's why I have a secretary that sets appointments so I can focus and help one person to the fullest at a time and I like to get in super early to get the work done without distractions, but something about working with cattle even if they are angry, stressed, bellowing, misbehaving is relaxing and helps me deal better with the chaos at work and put it all into perspective! Chaos at work is good though it means people are calling, stopping in, you're making money!!

Do you have a flyer with weekly, biweekly deals? One of our local hardware stores here does that (but not feed store) and it is fantastic. It builds excitement about current and new products, gets your name out there in front of people on a regular basis, and people always like to feel they got a great deal. An even cheaper way might be to do this with email list - I know I get emails from Orschelns several times a week (but they are a big company) but I know a lot of the older farmers and ranchers around here would not use email so that would only be limited at best.

Haven't decided on what to carry just yet... still investigating all the options. I will check out the Moore Maker brand. Will probably start with the Case knives and grow it from there.
