L.J. Hand Farm Center, Inc. was started 52 years ago in 1967 by Lynwood J. Hand. Initially, the store was dedicated as a tractor and machinery supply store as well as seed, feed, and fertilizer business. With more and more people discovering they can buy parts and supplies at discount prices, Mr. Hand decided he needed more room for those items and eliminated the seed, feed, and fertilizer business. As business increased Mr. Hand added a fifth-wheel mobile store to service farmers within a 15-mile radius.
In 1984, Mr. Hand moved the business to its present location on the family farm in the Village of Glen (Fultonville, New York). He was dedicated to the farming industry his entire life. He had a wealth of knowledge that is virtually unequaled and is well respected for it. After moving, the business he expanded, once again added another mobile store unit. The mobile store unit served the area until recent years when it was no longer cost effective due to the economy.
After the passing of Lynwood J. Hand in 2015, the store was handed down to his niece, Sandra Borden. She currently owns the business and has been investing in positive changes to L.J. Hand Farm Center, Inc.! The store continues to thrive and is currently expanding once again with many new items and store changes. In addition to our "Farmer’s Wife" section, we have recently added Animal Feed to our available products and expanded our store to the next wearhouse! After serving the farmers for so many years, we have decided to dedicate an area within the store specifically geared toward the farmer’s wife or women in general. This is a new chapter in the L.J. Hand Saga and we are excited to offer products both in store as well as via the internet.
