Olsen's Grain      
Olsen's Grain Good enough, Just isn't


The History of Olsenís Grain, Inc.

   With deep roots in northern Arizona,  Olsen's Grain, Inc.   has been a major retail supplier of pet, livestock, and wild bird feeds since 1979. Starting with the original location in Chino Valley, Olsen's has grown to six stores strong and is now also serving the communities of Prescott, Dewey/ Humboldt, Clarkdale, Flagstaff and their surrounding areas. Today, the company's superior product offerings and service form the basis for its motto:   "Good Enough, Just Isn't".

  Olsen's Grain is a family-owned business. Each of the four couples who own Olsen's live in the Prescott area, where family roots were established in the early 1950's. The ranching and farming tradition in the family gave them many years of experience dealing with the nutritional needs of animals in northern Arizona. The success of the six stores is the result of combining all of the owner's expertise and ideas in an effort to make  Olsen's Grain, the premier feed and pet supplier in the areas they serve. In 1979, with the financial help of his parents, John and Ann Olsen, Mike Olsen (a Vo-Ag teacher in Mesa) and his wife, Sherrill, bought the Chino Valley Grain Company. The name was changed to Olsen's Chino Valley Grain and eventually became   Olsen's Grain, Inc. Tired of corporate life in southern California, Steve Sischka and his wife, Kathy (Olsen), came on board in 1980 and opened the store in Prescott. Steve brought with him expertise in the pet food business as well as marketing and advertising. With a construction background and a minor in Agriculture in college, Dan Olsen and his wife, Barb, joined the business in 1982 and managed the Dewey store. Dan supervised the construction of two stores - Flagstaff in 1997 and Clarkdale in 2001. The sixth store was opened in the Timberline area of Flagstaff in 2011.

   The   Olsen's   feed mill in Chino Valley dates back to the 1940's. In its early years, the mill took care of local dairymen and farmers. With modernization and renovation of the mill,   Olsen's Grain   now produces its own lines of feed, mostly for the modern "back yard" animal enthusiasts.
Olsen's Grain   "Product of Pride" Feeds include sweet feed, cleaned and rolled grains, and custom mixes for horses, hogs, sheep, chickens and cattle.

  Along with their own line of feeds, they carry a complete line of Purina Mills Feeds. Purina Mills is the largest feed manufacturer in the United States and features such respected brand names as Layena, Omolene, Equine Senior, and Ultium. Since 1894, Purina Mills has been on the "cutting edge" of advances in animal nutrition. Their products are research based, performance proven and quality guaranteed.

  We at   Olsen's Grain   are also proud to be northern Arizona's "Healthy, Holistic Pet Food and Treat" stores. We carry 16 different specialized brands of dog and cat food for those health conscious people who want to feed their pets the very best. We also carry a full line of toys, accessories and remedies for today's pets as well as a complete line of veterinary and farrier supplies.

  Longevity, experience, personalized customer service and an ever-expanding knowledge of nutritional needs are the basis for   Olsen's Grain. It is an operation owned and managed by a family that cares about the community, their employees and the customers they serve. The Arizona Equifest is their way of giving back to the people who have supported   Olsen's   for so many years.
