Our Passion Statement

The spirit of WLS is founded in a rich history of Agricultural and Community tradition.  It all began in the 1920s at the Sunshine Feed Company and changed in the 1950s to the Wayne Feed Store.  We have grown and changed over the years to become who we are today.


It is our hope that when you read about our passion, you will understand that it was crafted with input from staff, so, therefore, comes from the hearts of all of us who work here at WLS.


We recognize the close bond between animals and their owners and it is with a deep passion that we nurture these relationships.

Our strength lies in our ability to work as a team, showing support for one another and our customers. We are dedicated to providing you with knowledge, expertise, and current information. We strive to allow our customers to share ideas and create solutions.

We all depend on others to help us through life for the big things and the small. We find the help we need through faith, family, friends, and our community. We will continue to serve our customers with the passion, pride and heart that started this business many years ago.

Come enjoy an atmosphere of something old . . . and something new. We invite you to look at the three horse drawn implements suspended in our store – three symbols of our connection to the land and the life that serves her . . .


ONE FURROW PLOW: a symbol of planting and new beginnings; man and horse bonded together.

HAY RAKE: a symbol of gathering, of family & friends; a gathering of information and ideas.

ONE ROW CULTIVATOR: a symbol of nurturing . . . cultivating relationships.
