The family of the owner of Beaty Fertilizer, Clayton Beaty, has been in business since the 1930’s. It all started with a feed and fertilizer business owned by Sim and Virgil Beaty, which eventually developed into Beaty Feed and Hardware. That business was sold in 2005 and is now Beaty True Value Hardware. Beaty Fertilizer, Inc. was started in the 1970’s, providing fertilizer for local farmers, and now has evolved into a retail and wholesale business, selling fertilizer, mulch, chemicals, gardening supplies, and much more. Our mail order internet division, which can be found at www.millsmix.com was started in the early 1990’s. Below are some pictures of our operation.
