About Us

In 1854, my Great, Great Grandfather Jezreal Bean moved his young family to the newly settled state of Illinois.  Since that time, generations have made their living on the farm.

After a brief corporate career, I began this business in order to keep the farm,  by then all but sold off, somewhat viable and in the family.  Grain or livestock required far more capitol than I could come up with, so Mulch & Firewood it is!

After 21 years the buildings are slowly being restored, thanks to the patronage of our many fine customers.  I continue to live in the house that Jezreal built, working from our little store on the property, when I’m not making deliveries.

Over the years we have added many Landscape & Gardening items to our offering, as well as Weber Grills & BBQ items.

If you are new to the area, or just haven’t seen us in a while, stop by and say hello.  We would be happy to show you what’s new.

Thanks for visiting our website!
