Family and Feed: A Tradition of Customer Service

Published

on

The roots of North Texas history can be traced back to its agricultural heritage, a rich mixture of cultivating crops and raising quality animals. Along the rural roads, small-town businesses are helping the hard-working farmers and ranchers who continue to keep that tradition alive, including Tony’s Seed and Feed in Muenster and Gainesville, Texas.

Tony’s Seed and Feed opened its doors in Muenster in 1966, and in Gainesville in 1973. It is currently under the direction of brothers Jeff Hellman and Damian Hellman, who kept the business as part of their family after taking over for their father, Joe Hellman, in 2011. Joe began working in the store when he was just 15 years old. He went on to spend 66 years providing feed for the farmers and ranchers of North Texas. The Hellmans proudly serve a distinctive corner of the Lone Star State, originally settled by German immigrants, with an emphasis on customer service passed on from father to sons.

When A City Girl Goes Country

Everyone needs a room with a view that makes their heart happy. My honest favorite panorama would be either the mountains or the ocean. I have yet to convince my hubby to make permanent moves to either, although he does enjoy the visits as much as I do.

The location of our house on our ranch does not provide the expansive field of vision of our land that I would enjoy. So, I have created a room decorated and furnished in a way that gives me smiles, giggles, and a wonderful peace-filled feeling when I am hanging out in it. I am in that place right now writing this column. I am in a lounging position with my computer in my lap on the chaise that was once my sweet mama’s. I had it reupholstered this year to give it a fresh look.

Local celebrity dancers of the greater Gainesville area brought the house down recently at the second annual “Dancing With Our Stars” contest in Lindsay. The event raised more than $200,000 as the sponsored dance teams did their best to take home the grand prize.

The money raised will go to the “Heart of NTMC” Campaign for the purchase of a cardiac capable CT machine for the Gainesville hospital. Rodolfo “Rudy” Martinez and Sherry Sherriden took home the Mirror Ball Trophy.
