Lone Star Farm & Home

When Valerie and Neal, the founders of Lone Star Farm and Home, found themselves driving over 30 miles to buy supplies for their farm they decided something had to be done. So in April 2011, they set up shop in Mt. Vernon, hand selecting items that they had used themselves with good experience. Now today they sell a wide assortment of products from automotive to animal feeds and everything in between. Located off Highway 150 towards Brodhead.
