Pinnacle acquires two farm supply stores
Pinnacle Agriculture Holdings, LLC, through its subsidiary Jimmy Sanders Incorporated, has acquired Mathis Farm Supply and Acuff Farm Supply.
Mathis Farm Supply, in Melber, Ky., was founded by John Ben Mathis in 1971 as a DeKalb seed corn dealer. In 1984 his sons, John and Neal Mathis, opened a full-service agricultural retail store offering seed, crop protection products, fertilizer and custom application. Mathis Farm Supply has been a valued Sanders wholesale customer.
The location will be managed by former owner, John Mathis, and will remain at the same location. Steve Wray and Keith Myers will continue to manage the sales operations.
Coupled with the existing Sanders locations in Fancy Farm, Mayfield and Wingo, this will be Sanders’ fourth retail location in the immediate area offering custom fertilizer blends, as well as seed and crop protection products. All locations also provide award-winning precision ag services through Sanders’ proprietary OptiGro system.
Located in Lubbock County, Texas, Acuff Farm Supply was founded in 1960 as a full-service farm supply operation, providing seed, fertilizer, crop protection chemicals, as well as various hardware and implement supplies to local growers.
The new Sanders location will be managed by former Acuff owner, Don Jones, and will remain at its current location. The current employees of Acuff will retain their positions under the new Sanders ownership.
Coupled with the existing Sanders location at 15003 FM 400 in Slaton, Texas, this will be Sanders’ second retail location in the Lubbock/Slaton area offering custom fertilizer blends, as well as seed and crop protection products. Both locations also provide award-winning precision ag services through Sanders’ proprietary OptiGro system.
