Who We Are
Growing Trade Pet & Plant sells high quality goods for your animals, plants, and homestead, plus supplies and gear for hard working people.
We strive to carry only the best. At the same time, we recognize that not every customer has the budget to buy extremely expensive merchandise, no matter how good it may be. Growing Trade strikes a balance between quality and price you won’t find at other stores – even our cheaper items are good and trustworthy. Where possible, we carry lower priced options to the more expensive brands.
No matter how good a reputation a brand may carry, very often they change hands, change location, and tweak their formulas. That is why we constantly evaluate every brand, every product we carry to make sure it continues to meet our standards. Honesty about the products we carry is of critical importance. We don’t owe a manufacturer or distributor anything, and will not blindly follow anyone’s marketing plan just to make a few sales. We strive to give our customers an honest assessment of a brand, so they have all the information needed to make the best choice for their animals and families.
Cheap manufacturing in Asia seems to be the rule today, and many things are absolutely impossible to source elsewhere. Because of safety concerns, we do not sell any food or treat made in China, and with a few notable (and completely safe) exceptions, all our feed is made and sourced in the USA.
We also make it a point to buy from local producers whenever possible, and champion their brands in our store.
