Originally located in West Monroe LA in the early 80’s and at one time focusing solely on commercial landscaping – Thomas Nursery and Feed has evolved their business model over 3 decades. The present form of the company began to take shape when John Thomas and his wife Audrey opened a small nursery in Farmerville LA (John’s hometown). At that point the commercial landscaping facet of the business was discontinued. Then began a transition that included adding a product showroom of just a few hundred square feet and expanding their business to include feed sales.
Fast forward to the present, and you will see that the business in its present form fills a 10 acre site, with greenhouses, feed warehouses, a corn/rice bran bagging operation and a large farm and home showroom. Lines offered include Carhartt and Wrangler clothing, Georgia, Rocky, and Redwing work boots, hardware and home improvement supplies, feed products and animal health supplies, Case knives, lawn and garden products, and Stihl power equipment. Outside a greenhouse and garden center awaits you along with feed, fertilizer, and a large selection of fencing. Thomas Nursery has positioned itself as a regional shopping destination, and lays claim to being “the largest farm and garden center in the state of Louisiana” with approximately 25,000 square feet under roof!
